Will repellents get a squirrel out of the chimney?

Wildlife eviction fluid is the only repellent on the market that will have any luck at getting rid of a squirrel in the chimney, but this is only if the squirrel itself can actually get out. You must first check this - if the inside of your flu is a smooth, metal surface, the animal will have nothing to grip on to in order to pull itself to freedom. If the animal is not stuck and is down there of its own accord, the eviction fluid, made up of urine and secretions from male foxes, can be effective at encouraging it to move along. If a female squirrel feels her family is threatened, she will move it to safety. If that's the case, the problem will have moved along, and all that's left for you to do is seal up those holes to ensure the animal can't come back. Other repellents, such as high frequency noise devices, radio devices, and light / light devices generally do not work. Why would they? The squirrel is living in your home, so it's already pretty comfortable with human sounds. Not only that, squirrels are active during the day, so the fact the light is on won't make much of a difference. If anything, the light will just encourage the little critter to find a deeper part of your home to rest its head, and then you could find yourself with even bigger problems on your hands.

They will climb inside, construct a nest and then grow a huge population of baby squirrels because they give birth twice in a year.

Now back to the main topic, will repellents really help eliminate squirrels in the chimney? well to some extend they do help. And below are some of the squirrel repellents you can use.
