I live in an apartment on the second story of a brick building in Philadelphia. There are lots of squirrels in the area. I have two window unit air conditioners. Squirrels have eaten through the plastic side extenders. I have replaced these with duct tape, and squirrels dig and claw at the duct tape and have succeeded in getting into my apartment this way. They are very bold and are not easily frightened. I have tried setting mouse traps, with no luck. I am now considering rat traps-- including the large wire kind and large glue traps. I realize this may result in the death of the squirrel, but the landlord trapped half a dozen squirrels with Havahart traps and they keep coming back.
