Forget the poison, try covering the affected area with hardware cloth. Use tin snips (good ones) and heavy duty half inch hardware cloth from the hardware store or a lumber company, NOT Home Depot- they have light duty, itís NG. In fact, itís NFG....
Cut and fold the cloth to fit, staple it up and see if it just moves them to another area. If it does, you gotta trap.
There is no such thing as a repellent for squirrels that will consistently work. No matter what you see on TV or the Internet...
