That's why stores sell unsalted peanuts and Haveaheart live traps!
and rat shot...
Apologies. Think I've posted this before. Had a rental house with a squirrel problem. Wildlife specialist exterminator quoted me a reasonable price for trapping up to four squirrels with a per squirrel charge after. He put candy circus peanuts in a no-kill trap, put several outside on the roof, and took out every squirrel in the neighborhood.

Rats with tails. I've had 2 power outages in the last week from squirrels touching the wire on top of transformers. It was the same transformers. Of course it takes the power co time to respond and search for the problem. 2 fried squirrels.

Candy Circus "peanut" marshmallows are actually more expensive than real peanuts. I use real peanuts in a live trap and catch the industrious athletes to keep them away from the wife's bird seed. Its futile. They reproduce like crazy.
Squirrels can do significant damage to a structure. They (along with rats) are responsible for thousands of building/house fires every year. I keep the trees severely trimmed around my home, as well as the rest of the properties I own.
