Scranton Squirrel Situation: Hi, David, I stumbled across your Web site and wonder if you have any advice you might care to offer on my recent squirrel problems. I live in a small house adjacent to a neighborhood park in Wilkes Barre, PA. Over the last several weeks (since the start of fall) the squirrels have become increasingly bold, astonishingly bold. The final straw was a couple days ago when my kids left the kitchen door open and I walked into the dining room to find a squirrel on the table. Since then, the squirrels are constantly on the back steps and even appear to be testing the door. They are seemingly unafraid of humans, and it takes great effort to get them to run away. I can be inches away on the inside of our patio door, and they just sit and look at me. Outside, they don't run away until I'm a few feet from them. I've lived here for years, and the squirrels have never acted like this. Over the summer, we sometimes put cat food out, but the squirrels were never interested in it. Anyway, we stopped doing that recently. Do you have any suggestions on what I might do to make them less bold? Is there any point in trapping them? There are so many around. Thanks. Ps, I have nothing against them. When I was small, we kept a baby squirrel that had fallen out of the nest. It was a wonderful pet, but we let it go after about a year. It loved oatmeal, and at breakfast it used to go from bowl to bowl until it found the one it liked best. At bedtime, it quickly climbed the post of our bunkbed and hid under my sister's pillow. No wonder my six-year old wants to take one in as a pet!
I just read through your web site. My specific question is when I could be safe trapping squirrels without leaving orphans behind. You mention that there would not be babies at the time various people have posted, but don't give a specific mating and birthing season that I can find. Thank you for any information you can provide. I have the Have a Heart traps, but don't want to leave dying babies behind.
My response: Babies are born in mid-August and mid-February. They mature in two months.
Thank you. I guess I'd better set traps immediately. I live in the country and know this will be an ongoing adventure, but try to trap the rodents before the man who does my farming gets to them. It is illegal in Bloomington PA to move a rodent more than a mile from where they were caught, so I guess I'm a major law breaker, because I found a large park away from homes, but with food and water where I can release them.
It is a cold night in December and I am hearing a light scratching noise or movement in my ceiling/ walls in our bonus room above the garage. No crazy fast noises, just a periodic scratching noise. We have had bats years ago and had work done to eliminate them....but would hear something that occasionally sounded like a bat "once in a blue moon" (then it would go away). Have not heard anything for months though. Mice?? Is this a case of squirrels? Please advise me as soon as you can I need to know what to do.....I cannot sleep! :-(
