Every once in a while I open my office window and shout something at them. This brings of course not a look of terror but one of ennui from these relentless beasts.
A women in my Bible study suggested we put out corn for the squirrels way out in the back yard, far away from the bird’s buffet.
I feel like this is rewarding the squirrels for bad behavior, but I’m willing to try it if it keeps those darn rodents out of my yard.
