Not sure what the zoning is around your house but a 12 guage with full choke and trap and skeet loads are very effective against against squirrels its also VERY satisfying to blast those little f-ers

After thoughtful consideration, I'm going to attempt the corn cobs in the antifreeze approach. The antifreeze is at least automotive in nature, so maybe this thread will remain unlocked for a while. The only proble I can forsee with the corncob approach is that I won't fully be able to appreciate the dead varmits demise firsthand. I should only notice it by a decrease in shells on the ground.

OR you could get a couple of hav-a-hart traps and

A: Relocate them to your your worst enemies neighborhood. <most deviouse>
B: Relocate them to a big field and give 'em a good running start before you blast 'em. <most satisfying>
C: Give 'em to Dick Cheney and let him blast 'em (make sure you're not in the hunting party ). <least likely to eliminate the squirrels>

you know, animals in general (like pets) are attracted to the sweetness of antifreeze. some of the newer antifreezes aren't supposed to be as bad/lethal (dexcool, for example; don't know about g-12).

i say just shoot them.

My neighbor helps us have pecans around here. He said about 2 days ago his body count with his trap is up to 420.

When I asked a while back what he does with the ones he catches he smiled and winked and said "of course" he takes them out of town and releases them. Right.

BBD,

I'm thinking you should whoop up a big ole pot of this for the next GTG:

Seminole Squirrel Stew

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
2 Squirrels, cleaned
1 cup All-purpose flour
2 cups Water
Salt and pepper to taste
6 tablespoons Lard or bacon drippings

Cut squirrels into serving pieces. Mix salt, pepper and flour and
dredge the squirrel pieces in the mixture. In a large skillet, heat
the fat and fry squirrel pieces, turning occasionally until golden
brown. Remove squirrel from the skillet and set aside. Pour off all
fat except about 3 tablespoons. Add water to the skillet and bring to
boil. Return squirrel to the skillet; bring to boil again, cover and
reduce heat. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is very
tender. Serve with corn bread.

I loves me some fresh kill.
