The small rodents have a vital role in the ecological cycle of life by serving as an important source of food for larger mammals, predatory birds and reptiles. However, the damage they create on private property leads to headaches for humans. The squirrels are notorious for trampling crops and consuming a wide selection of plant life. Preferring underground habitation, the rodents create a complicated network of tunnels that feature multiple exits and sleeping quarters. In addition to invading a homeowner’s yard, they may establish territories and wreak havoc in baseball fields, cemeteries and golf courses. Adequate eviction requires painstaking evaluation and strategic efforts.
