These methods are what experts find the most effective in taking care of a squirrel problem.

1. Exclusion:Start this method by sealing the attic. This includes patching holes, getting a chimney cap, covering vents and making sure any openings to your home are secure. Be sure to leave one hole. The next step is to create an exit. Make a sheet metal or mesh funnel and attach it to the one hole you left. The third step is to draw them out. You can do this by placing food outside the funnel.

2. Trapping: There are four steps to trapping. Those are set the right sort of trap, use the right sort of bait, relocate the squirrels after they are in the trap, and keep the traps up until all the squirrels are gone.
