Tough question, Dawn... Unfortunately, there's no chemical, that's safe for you, me and the trees, that will keep these critters at bay. Once they find out how available your fruit is, you're in trouble.
Depending on the area, the situation and the number of squirrels you have, live trapping may be able to help you out.
I do know that even commercial farmers struggle with this problem, but they have many more trees and can stand for a few stolen fruits.
