Sorry, Joe, missed your post. As far as your hole-drilling squirrels are concerned, I would expect there are babies up there, rather than "food."
Try jamming an old rag up there and see if the hole is still being used. It's possible you closed it in and this was their escape hole. If the rag (or whatever) stays up there for a few days, use some hardware cloth and cover the hole for a few weeks or so. If it STILL stays un-bothered, FIX it.
There are other things to do if you find it's still being used. Get back to me.
