I read somewhere on the Internet that Bubblicious Bubble Gum is an effective way of getting rid of squirrels. "The bubblegum cannot be processed by rodents and thus plugs the sphincter muscle/valve that is between the stomach and the small intestine" is what leads squirrels or any rodents to their demise when they eat this particular brand of gum. Have you of this method John? I think this method is safer than using D-Con mixed with peanut butter because non-target animals could become sick from either eating the bait directly or eating a poisoned squirrel. I think everyone could enjoy chewing on Bubblicious Bubble Gum, including the squirrels for a short time!
