Managing Squirrels on Your Property

Managing Squirrels on Your Property While squirrels may look cute and cuddly, they can actually be persistent thieves at the bird feeder. They also occasionally damage lawns by burying or digging up nuts, destroy ornamental trees by chewing bark, clip twigs and gnaw on wires and enter buildings.

Below are some tips on how to prevent squirrel damage:

  • Build a barrier by encircling the tree with a 2-foot-wide metal collar about 3 to 4 feet off the ground.
  • Close any openings into or out of attics and other buildings.
  • Trim tree leaves to prevent squirrels from being able to jump onto rooftops.
