You could move to the dessert...
Actually if you live where there are squirrels, everything I've read says to learn to live with them. In Oklahoma, we have big red fat squirrels and they are quite comical. To protect our immediate area, where we wanted to feed birds, we built a squirrel treat feeder further away from the back yard porch section, and they mainly hung around the feeders.
Be careful not to leave scraps and food close to your house, and do tantalize them to an area further away from you...they require lots of food.
Our problem was a pecan tree right next to the house. We just had to live with it.
I hope you won't decide to set traps. They are just doing what squirrels do.
