Keeping squirrels out of trees

Wrapping a couple of feet of sheet metal all the way around the tree's trunk about six feet off the ground makes it very difficult for a squirrel to climb.

Metal sheeting should not be applied during the squirrel nesting season, which runs April through September, because a mother squirrel might not be able to return to her babies.

If you need assistance, call our Wildlife Center's Good Neighbors service.
