Should I ever poison a squirrel? - Squirrels on your property can be a huge problem. They not only get into all kinds of things and make a mess, but also carry a lot of diseases that can make them a danger to you, your family and your pets. They can sick by the waste that the squirrels leave around or by being bit and infected with the diseases or parasites of these animals.
To resolve this, some resort to putting poison out in their yards, either on bait that they want the animals to eat so that they will die, or on the ground so that when the squirrels step in it they will become poisoned and die. These seems like a perfectly logical idea to do, and makes sense on so many levels, but the truth is that this is quite dangerous to your yard and to other animals that are around.
If you decide to poison some bait, like some nuts or seeds, you are going on the assumption that the squirrel is the only one that is going to eat the bait. That is not the case at all. Other animals may see that as a tasty treat as well and eat it. Think about all the animals that eat seeds and nuts. There are many of them, and they may go for the bait as well. This means that birds and other critters could be poisoned as well.
If you simply decide to leave the poison on the ground waiting for the squirrel to walk through it and become poisoned you are also putting a lot of other animals at risk. This includes your own pets. They may walk through the poison, lick their paws and get sick and die. You can quickly find your own pet a casualty of your big plan, meaning that there are clearly consequences that you did not intend.
In either case, your option to use poison can quickly turn into a plan that turns your yard into a graveyard. This is not what you intended at all, but poison does not discriminate. It harms whatever comes its way, and it has the same effect on a variety of animals, including your own kids. Consider that your children playing in your yard may also be poisoned. They could touch the bait or play where the poison is and find them sickened by your master scheme. While the squirrels may be troublesome, you should look for another plan other than this one.
