If you want to keep California squirrels away from your yard, out of your gardens, and away from your home, here are some simple tips.
Don’t allow the squirrels to come in! Fence your yard in a proper manner so that Oakland squirrels cannot get in the first place. You should use hardware cloth because they cannot fit through the small sized holes. You need to BURY your hardware cloth fence at least six inches deep because California squirrels are burrowing animals. Angle the top few inches of the fence AWAY from your property to prevent the animals from scaling it. Squirrels are also very able climbers. Many people are fans of an electric fence, but that is a drastic measure that is usually unnecessary.

Make sure your trees cannot be used as ladders or bridges to allow the California squirrels to drop in to your yard, or onto the roof of your home or other structures. Always keep your fence line clear. If you install a gate, make sure the gaps are minimal, and that it is kept closed. Using natural repellents is supposed to work as well. Planting mint around the outskirts of your area is said to be an excellent deterrent. . Mint is a supposed natural Oakland squirrel repellent, and there are about 60 different delicious and wonderful smelling varieties of mint for you to choose. To scare the squirrels away, you can Sprinkle predator urine from a fox, big cat (like a mountain lion or panther), wolf, or bear around your yard. You can these “scents” wherever most hunting supplies are sold. Let your dogs and children play in the yard often, and plan family gathering outside with lots of noise and movement. This will help discourage the skittish squirrels from coming in.
