Way too many squirrels
We are under attack. We have SO many squirrels this year. We are in the woods and do have several bird feeding stations so of course there are going to be squirrels. I don't mind feeding them too, they are fun to watch. BUT enough is enough. I have a wrap around deck and they are constantly banging things around. They have even figured out how to get to the feeder on the window. I don't mind so much but I think Hubby is really considering hunting them this year. At any one time you can count as many as 15-20 squirrels out in the yard, and that is just the yard part of our 10 acres. I know the feeders attract them but they are not the cause of such a population explosion. There are plenty of natural preditors around, hawks, cyotes, etc. I realy hate the thought of Hubby hunting them ( they are just so darned cute) but there are truly just way tooo many of them. How does one cope with such a population explosion, or will nature put things back in ballance herself?
