squirrel repellant

Page 1 of 2  
I keep getting squirrels building a nest under a roof. Its an overhang next to third floor roof. I do not want to look at chicken . And no I cannot trap or transport or harm them as they are protected in this state. Does anyone know of a repellent that I could spray there to keep them away from that portion of the house? Or are they afraid of any rubber animals?
TIA.

Squirrels are protected? What state is that?
I'd spray some #6 birdshot from a 12-gauge to repel them.

In most states squirrels are game animals. You may hunt them, generally between September and January, if you have a license. Be sure to tag the antlers. The good news is that in these states, squirrels gnawing on wiring is not considered "miscellaneous rodent damage" by your insurance company.

Only during September through January.

Fire, and lots of it..
I've never heard of a squirrel returning after being set on fire, so it must work as a great repelleant. Anyone have experiences to share?

anyone
that
1. Why don't you want to look at chickens?
2. I think a life size rubber Ann Coulter animal would scare most anything away. If not that, a life size rubber Hillary Clinton would make them drop dead of fright, right on the spot.
3. Google for squirrell in this newsgroup. Most of the posts that come up will be authored by or be about 'Doug', 'Chris' or 'Stretch', but I'd bet you'll find other threads that discuss your question to ridiculous lengths.
GL!
(And don't be afraid of the chickens. At least they don't build nests under your roof. Also, it makes you seem.... well... like ... well, sort of like a chicken, I suppose.)

Oh man, like most of us, we can't look at chickens too. They are so sexy.
Ow la La.....

Life size, what is that a string? A twig, a wire? The woman is invisible most of the time, she needs to eat more food.

Or commit suicide.

Oh man, chickens. Oh La La

Ann's political views scare most people. Her 'physical' view may not (vbg).

Amen. Even the Hildebeast 's name may scare the **** outta them...

says... :) And no I cannot trap :) or transport or harm them as they are protected in this state. Does anyone :) know of a repellent that I could spray there to keep them away from that :) portion of the house? Or are they afraid of any rubber animals? :) :) A friend of mine has a nice sight with lots of info and a message board dedicated just to squirrels. www.unexco.com They aren't really protected, just considered a game animal, and there are certain consideration in order to deal with them, though I doubt you will have a problem with any agency at all if you can show they are a nuisance to the structure.

Lots of *really* helpful people here, no?
Homemade pepper spray; dump a bottle of Tabasco into an empty spray bottle. Fill with water and spray liberally. WEAR EYE PROTECTION AND WASH YOUR HANDS WHEN FINISHED!!!!

I grew up in the south Missouri Ozark mountains. We never had trouble with squirrels in the house, our squirrels understood that if they showed up near a house, they'd wind up in the kitchen. Braize in a little water till near tender, roll in seasoned flour and fry like chicken! Good stuff! Get a .22 and some shorts and hit them right near the eye! Use a sharp knife to clean them, they have a really tough skin for a small animal.

its comforting to see that for a change someone gave the RIGHT answer instead of simply suggesting you blow whatever animal is offending you away.

At least one person suggested burning them, which is similar to "blowing them away", but slightly different. Personally I think either method is great, although burning napalm can be somewhat hazardous to the structure.
There's nothing simple about controlling squirrels. Don't underestimate the little varmints.

What state is it that protects these vermin?
