There is no such thing as an effective squirrel repellant. Period. People will always try to sell you products, and magic cure-alls. Some products work, and some don't. In the field of wildlife control, you'll often find more bogus products than effective ones. squirrels are mammals. They are similar to you and I. There is no magic scent or smell or chemical or poison that will deter them. The internet is full of squirrel deterrent products, but none of them work. Some of these products include fox or coyote urine, which is a nice idea in theory, but it isn't effective. Other products are simply made of napthalene - moth balls - which some companies sell as an end-all be-all in wildlife repellant. Sorry, it simply doesn't work. I've seen people dump about 25 lb. of mothballs in an attic squirrels are living, and they don't care in the slightest. They keep using the area. Devices such as ultrasonic sound emitters that make a high-pitched noise are completely useless. I've been to so many properties over the years in which people have spent time and money on silly gimmicks like these, and then they hire a real wildlife control operator, and the problem is correctly taken care of.
Here we see a photo of a squirrel caught properly in a trap, as it exits out of a large round gable vent of an apartment attic. There is no magic spray or powder or anything else to keep away squirrels. (squirrel-Repel brand deterrent spray keeps 'em away!) If you have a squirrel problem and you wish to get rid of them, they should be physically trapped and removed from the habitat. After all the squirrels are removed, the entry points that they chewed open should be completely and permanently sealed.
Squirrels cause a number of problems for people. The most common conflicts that occur with squirrels involves their desire to live inside of buildings. Like all
members of the rodent family, squirrels are excellant chewers, and they will chew their way into your home or commercial building. Once inside, they may even chew
on wires or pipes! People often hear the squirrels running about in the attic or ceiling. They often bring in nesting debris, and can create a fire hazard, not only
due to the debris, but also by chewing electrical wires. Squirrels will also chew on the woodwork of a home. Everyone knows about how squirrels steal food from birdfeeders,
but that problem can be solved by buying squirrel-proof feeders. Squirrels have two litters per year, and reproduce quickly, like all rodents. This means that at times
the squirrel population can grow to high numbers, and extra pressure is placed on buildings. Squirrels will move into attics or chimneys, or even places like drier vents.
