lol. Tom, you have to understand... We have a LOAD of squirrel haters in this here forum!

But he IS right. When you relocate, all you're doing in relegating that problem to someone else - assuming, of course, that he can't find his way back. That's in addition to (possibly) spreading any diseases to a new squirrel population.

Fortunately, I guess you could say, most relocated squirrels are not able to establish a territory and generally perish.

And answering your question, to be SURE they can't come back, you would have to take them AT LEAST 5 miles away, in a zig-zag pattern. Even then it's possible for them to find their way back.
