I had this nasty squirrel eat away at my pumpkin this morning?? I am on the 4th floor in an apt. complex so the squirrels must be pretty desperate for food? Any suggestions on how to get rid of them or deter them just until halloween is over at least
At another place I lived in yrs. ago near a park, a squirrel actually ate a hole through a hard plastic garbage can.....squirrels are like nasty big rats... If anyone knows how to rid them that would be helpful. Thanks
Pay for humane squirrel removal services. You can use a number of different methods for getting them away from your pumpkin, but they may be destroying the property you live in by building their nests and multiplying.
Squirrel removal is the task of many days, which requires time and patience. If you want to get rid of dependents forever, mobilize your strength and begin now.They damage literally everything they can reach, and this costs thousands of dollars. I read few advice here. I hope, I helped you
Thanks !!! Great idea!!! I can't believe It has been sitting out there for 10 days and nothing untill this sunday and I shewed it away with the broom but as soon as I closed the door it was right back...hopefully hot sauce will deter them thanks!!!
Keep the squirrel, cats are more of a problem. Feed'em a peanut butter sandwich when you get home from work or where ever. After a few days he'll figure out your schedule and only show up at dinner time.
I'm sure if you took the time to discuss the problem with the squirrel... you would find out that squirrels would happily get rid of people that want to kill them, if they had the chance! Your squirrel is merely being a squirrel... by hanging your pumpkin out on display.. you are giving the Nasty Beast mixed messages! Pumpkins are not a natural food for squirrels... it probably bit into it to check out what it was and guessed that you were offering it a mouthful of something tasty! Have you considered the benefits of befriending the squirrel and perhaps offering it any of your nuts or stale grainy bread? That should allow you to get close to it so you can cage and remove it, maybe to someone else's pumpkin patch.... You might find the whole experience with an agreeable, consenting squirrel quite enjoyable...
I just don't understand why people always want to kill things that they don't understand or are prepared to share the world with.... why not take the time to look at the situation from their perspective! - maybe your pumpkin got nailed because it had been abusing the squirrel!
Well thanks but I'm not a squirrel whisperer..nice thought though. It's not like I'm in a country estate with a forrest near by it is a brick apt. complex. So why the squirrels interest in climbing 4 flights for a 2 week old pumpkin ???who knows??
You had mentioned communicating with the squirrels above. That's why I mentioned the squirrel whisperer comment. And believe me I did yell at it and chase it away with a broom...anyway it hasn't been back since this past sun. So it must have not liked the pumkin after destroying it. Anyway next halloween I'll just leave the pumpkin inside and that'll solve everything. Hopefully they'll go to a park and collect acorns and other things from nature.
Some people seem to really love squirrels, and others seem to view them as rats that live in the trees, that spread disease and sickness much like sewer rats. Do you like squirrels? Or do you view them as disease...
My 9-year-old, 90-pound goldie just had surgery today to repair the ligament that holds her knee in place. She will be home on Saturday and recuperating for up to 12 weeks. The vet says no walks, no visits from people...
