Yes they can! You'd be amazed at what they can do. They can walk right up the side of your house, even if it's aluminum-sided.
If they are only in the soffit, and you're sure of that, take down the soffit and clean out all the debris, leave it open and PAINT the inside wit two coats of alkyd-based exterior primer and at least one coat of finish.
Leave it open until the spring and in the meantime catch as many squirrels as you can, put each and every one of them down.
This summer you can put the soffits up again with no squirrel problem.
