Squirrels can be EXTREMELY destructive. I recently had to replace the lead boot on my roof that covers the sewer vent. Seems the squirrels chewed the lead off the top edge causing a leak. I guess with that much lead ingested I probably have a bunch of brain damaged squirrels. I live in the suburbs and it is not unusual for me to see over 15 squirrels in my back yard. If one gets too destructive, I will trap him and give him swimming lessons/

I don't think it would be illegal to shoot them with a paint ball gun. the paint ball will scare the heck out of them and the paint will wash off with the rain. Besides, wouldn't it be funny to see a bunch of purple squirrels running around ? I think they would eventually get the idea that they aren't wanted and will move by themselves
