I have been battling these squirrels for over a year. They initially ate a hole in my AC unit, now they have been consistently chewing holes in my pool heater, making them leak. They have caused over $1000 in damage and service calls. I have tried the havahart trap, deer repellant, plastic owls, and I am at wit's end. A neighbor even suggested putting cayenne pepper on the panels. I caught one squirrel in the span of a month. The problem continues, as our neighborhood is loaded with squirrels.
My trap is hypersensitive. I had 20 false alarms before it finally caught one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
