Squirrel tastes great! Kabobs might not be a bad idea!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Probably won't try my hand at urban rodents as a food source, but the trapping idea may work. We have 3 squirrels so as for which one is "tapping that" I'll likely never know unless I stay up late enough to watch Cinemax after dark.

The other option is the air gun, as the squirrel slingshot will put me out of grace with my neighbors. If I come up with a more creative solution, I'll try and video it.

The only thing I can add is that peanut butter and sunflower seeds will draw in squirrels to just about anything. They love that stuff.

Best of luck Ineff!

Urban squirrels eat the same stuff as country squirrels, but they do it with attitude.

Ineff:

We feed birds in the back yard, which means we feed the furry tailed rats as well. No problem until a few took up residence in our sub-floor. A bathroom exhaust vent louver had blown off during hurricane Ike, and they had got in that way. Traps and a professional exterminator did not work. I solved this problem with a Gamo .177 high velocity pellet rifle. Had to kill about 30 of the furry tailed rats until we could no longer hear the bastages in the sub-floor, then I put up a new vent louver to keep them out.

I did not see another FT rat in my back yard for about 6 months, however they are back now, but no longer pose a problem.

If you opt for the .177 caliber solution, I'd recommend the Gamo "Whisper" series. It is much quieter, and you can do your work with less chance of any neighbors knowing about it.

Thanks TX. I shall look into that. I really want to shoot something and since school children are out of season this time of year, these little effers will do nicely.
