(I have the same dilemma with squirrels in my yard except it's with my vegetable garden.)
If you're in New Jersey be careful you don't get caught. Drowning is against the law. CO2 from a car tailpipe is against the law, only gas from a bottle is acceptable when using CO2. The killing of wildlife (nuisance or otherwise)is referenced to as the acceptable methods listed in The American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines on Euthanasia. Having browsed a pdf of the guidelines it seems that they (the state) are really making it very difficult if not impossible for to put down an animal on your own. Can't use a rifle even during hunting season because township law prohibits the discharge of firearms within the boro limits - Firearms in Nj also include pellet guns, slingshots, bow and arrow etc. Just having a slingshot on your person is a disorderly conduct offense. Can't use a bow during hunting season because State Game laws won't let me use a bow within 450 feet of an occupied dwelling. Can't relocate them because of all the red tape involved at the county level. What it boils down to is, you do what you got to do (as humanely as possible) but out of sight of the public. If I lived in PA this would not be as big a problem as here in NJ. -Good Luck
