Learning About Squirrels Has Never Been Easier!

Why would getting rid of squirrels be on someone’s agenda, anyway?

They’re cute, furry, and highly entertaining!

Their athleticism and acrobatics delight new homeowners who proudly install their first bird feeder and watch with amusement as they begin to appear.
