Any mass extermination methods besides poison out there? I did not kill enough does this year and the progeny are physically eating the infrastructure. I could go for bottle rocket netting and some beers, but there is a youtube downside to that plan.

But the biologists here say we should not transport trapped animals to a new location, and there is no seasonal limits on grey squirrel here.

Mothballs are working for me to keep them from digging up my veggies but the smell is definitely a drawback.
mothballs are a benzene chemical, basically a car exhaust as I recall. Could I put benzene producing mothballs in the bird feeders and kill squirrels but feed birds?

Cayenne pepper mixed with birdseed supposedly works to keep squirrels out of seed.
Texas squirrels love to eat hot peppers out of my garden or they used to. I have pretty much annihilated them.

Hi,

Bron and I like the little critters so we've got a 300 hole golf course for a back garden.

Kind regards, Colin.

Well, behind my property is a 12,500 acre ranch. One would think that would be enough for them, but no.
