How to Kill a Squirrel - Squirrels are widely considered as an innocent animal but large number of squirrels in the public and private places can disturb people. Squirrels mostly annoy people with their intolerable chirpy noise they make. Capturing and then sending them a place far from your place is an option. But that does not solve the problem completely or because it requires more hard work.
Trap and kill:
Killing squirrels is the last option anyone should think upon. As most problems can be solved by taking some preventions. There are body clamping traps available in the market which not only allow you to trap but also can help you to kill the squirrels. Most of the traps contains a blade or metal wires which inject it into the body of squirrels and then lethally kill them. Rectangular shaped these traps can be bought from market and can also be ordered online from Amazon.
As squirrels are the mostly seen urban nuisance animal there are multiple options you can use to get rid of them. There are suggestions of poisoning the squirrels through their favorite foods such as the nuts and peanuts. But as their sensitive nose is considered they can easily verify the odd smell coming out from the poison. There are no working bait poisons made for squirrels. You can try some made for mice.
Burning their home:
May sound evil but yes it's an option. Most squirrels live in the hollows of the trees near your house. After all burning all tree is not worthy and yet a safe way to do it. But you can spray some gasoline in the hollows and then can burn it. As the gasoline is sprayed its small layer won't burn the tree. But can effectively burn the newborn babies of the squirrels controlling their population.
Squirrels live in the hollows of the trees near your home or garden. Capturing and then drowning them may take a lot of time and probably take your breathe out. So putting a tube of water and then releasing its cap and filling the hollow space with water can help you drown them at their home. This is a pretty cost efficient and worthy procedure. But yeah it's cruel.
Shoot them up:
As the squirrel's size is considered it is hard to aim them and kill them with gun. But if you are having big guns like shotgun you can aim at a group of squirrels. This will allow you to bulk kills the little annoying creatures. But as the cost considered of the bullets it is not affordable to waste them on small squirrels.
As most of the above options are cruel and killing any animal is not humanly. You should consider trapping as the solution. Squirrels perhaps are innocent animals and can be prevented with simple precautions. They really don't deserve a killing as only few of them survive in the first year of their lives.
