I live on a street with about 40 to 50 pecan trees and several other nut trees on it. As you can imagine the squirrels are very thick here. I want to keep them out of my yard (my wife won't let me shoot them). What can I do to keep them away? I was told to get a couple of owl statues and put them in my yard. Would that work? Will it keep them out of my trees? The leaves are just starting to sprout here and the squirrels are starting to chew them off. And they are also digging little holes in my yard. Just typing this out, thinking about squirrels, is making me mad. I HATE SQUIRRELS!!! Any help would be appreciated.
