    I have mostly pear trees and pine trees in my yard . I dont have any Squrrils . My yard is surrounded by a corn field . But on theother side of the corn field is a house that has lots of squirils .
    How can I get the squrills to come over to my yard ? My wife likes our birds and watching them at the bird feeder . I like hunting squrills , but dont want to hunt in my yard . I want to watch them and see how they act and all . Kinda like study them .
    How can I get them to come over ? Feeders or what ? I think the neighbors have oak trees with acorns and that may be why they live there .

    Be careful what you wish for - squirrels cause 90% of all power outages. Get a good generator. lol

    It's all fun and games until they're dropping hickory nuts on your roof from 100' up. They also destroy most bird feeders. I have pics of a bird feeder that they haven't been able to destroy but they still eat out of it if you're interested. We spend about $20 per month buying suet cakes and black sunflower seeds for the birds and the squirrels get their share as well. I gave up on shooting them and launching them over the hill with a clay pigeon thrower. Youtube "squirrel launcher" that's the only way they're fun to watch is when they're flying through the air.

    Around us the red squirrels own the pines and will run the larger gray squirrels outta dodge.

    That's all they've got in my yard...in the Sierra, nothing but pine nuts and the squirrels thrive. I'd love to get rid of the little bastards. My wife and kids like 'em so I can't in good conscience...you know...anyway, one thing to try is take a pine cone and spread peanut butter on the all over it and hang it in a tree where they can reach it. Hopefully they leave my house and go to tercels.

    I live in somewhat of a residential area.

    I found acorns in my attic just last week.

    I own a suppressor.

    I have many, many cases of Aguila sub-sonics.

    I have many threaded .22 rifles.

    The war is on!

    I have some much better pics of the squirrels terrorizing those feeders but they're on the SD card in my camera right now.

    The gray squirrels are not too destructive, however the red squirrels will eat roofs, wires, whatever they think they can eat...

    They eat that crap all autumn long here. Pile up little pine cone shingles under the tree and pitch the cores at the dogs (and me, if I'm smoking on the deck).
