Default Squirrels

Hey guys. I'm having an issue with squirrels nesting in my warehouse. First are they dangerous if I get near them not knowingly and second any advice on how to rid them? Thanks!

Squirrels will bite if threatened, but I don't think you will get near them, even if you try. Unfortunately, IMO you may have to lay traps or poison.

I have trapped many a squirrel in a Have-a-Heart Trap. It is no fuss, no muss. Once you figure out how they are getting inside your whse -and close it up, you can trap them and release them outside.

I've trapped quite a few red squirrels and chipmunks in a Rat Zapper (Google it). Using sunflower seeds as bait, it works like a charm. And, they don't come back. I finally resorted to this method, as the little jerks always find a way to get in trouble around my place.
