      Hi, Im new, this is my first post, but thought this may help others
      as it was a great help to us.

      Earlier this year we developed a problem with squirrls. On the eve
      of our house we had board that had started to rot. My husband
      replaced it, but the squirrls decided it would be a good place to
      chew,,lol,,well after replacing it twice, the squirrls got in, and
      were reaking havoc in my attic, the wiring and etc.

      i was at a loss
      at what to do. calling in professionals was not an option because of
      the expense, as well as, they wanted to place cages and catch them,
      then turn them loose. the whole idea was i didnt want them coming
      back again and again, but i didnt want to kill them either.

      so i
      found out that the fox is the natural predator of a squirrl. so i
      went to walmart to the hunting section and found a bottle of fox
      urine. lol i know ewwww,,is what i thought as well.

      but it works. i
      bought a bottle, put it in a spray bottle and we sprayed the eves
      all around the house. no more squirrls!!!

      yeahhh!!! this really
      works..the squirrls dont even jump from the trees to cross over the
      roof of the house anymore. and the bottle was only about 5 bucks and
      it goes a long ways.

      Now it does smell to high heaven, but the smell
      does go away in a few minutes and you cant smell it anymore, but the
      squirrls can.
      I have also found this helps as well around the bird feeders. The
      squirrls are always getting into those as well. Ive also sprayed
      around the base of some of my trees when the birds were nesting to
      keep the squirrls out of the nests.
      Hope this helps someone as much as it has us.
      Thanks
      Chelle
