Other suggestions? Like what? Trapping is really the ONLY choice to get rid of the problem.
Before you do any of that, you must make sure that all tenants understand that they CANNOT feed the wildlife, and yes, that includes birds.... (I get asked that all the time!)
After that, assuming you have made the right preparations, you can get those squirrels trapped.
As far as where they are getting in, that's pure detective work. Plop yourself down in a lawn chair, out of their personal space and just watch. Best times are early morning or late afternoon.
If you (or your men) are going to do this yourselves, you have a interesting job ahead! However, with a half dozen traps or so, and assuming you can get the cooperation of all the tenants, it CAN be done. All of the tips and tricks on my squirrel pages and this message board gives you what you need to get the job done.
