They're pretty resourceful, huh? And yeah, they can all do that, but not all of them know how. They will learn from each other, so if you want to do anything about it, your best bet will be to try and trap the ones that are doing it. That assumes that there aren't too many...
Many years ago, I had a couple of fruit trees in the back yard, peach as I remember. Now, peaches are a bit more accessible than coconuts are, and I fought with them for a couple of seasons, but eventually I gave up... And I'm an exterminator!
There's no coconut palms in my neighborhood (Palm Coast) and I haven't heard any of my neighbors complain about them as yet. Around here, they're the "Florida" grey squirrel, which is just a smaller sized grey.
If you're gonna try trapping, around Florida, if the squirrels are small, you can probably use the cheaper 1030 trap. The 1040s can be hard to find.
Let us know what you do and how it works!
P.S. And you CAN display a picture, videao, whatever, as long as it's on the web.
