They just don't fear people...OR my lazy cats. My LOSER NEIGHBORS feed them!!! ACK! So, of course, they have multiplied. They also like to tear up lawn furniture and take the filling to pad their nests.

They are the Red squirrels...and they seem to be more aggressive than the gray squirrels I remember from the Midwest.

my folks always fed the red squirrels corn and they didn't do the kind of damage your friends are doing, but my mom had a cat that would go up into the trees after the squirrels, he even killed two of them

Just short of going crazy, and sitting outside locked and loaded, because between the fuzzy tree rats, cottontailed devils, and the masked marauders, it's enough to drive even the most even tempered gardener to tear out their hair in frustration.

Solution:
And WARNING! for you all animal lovers, stop reading this now, you won't like this a bit.

Plaster of Paris balls, (approx. marble sized.) and roll it in peanut butter.

You won't see them again.
