This is weird. I had my house painted about 3 years ago. We had never had a single problem with squirrels chewing the paint off the house until we painted. No neighbors have the problem either. Our trim is gnawed down to the raw wood. Our front porch has had the siding torn off almost completely along the bottom board of whole porch. They tear off quarter, or larger, sized pieces of the siding and spit it out!!! On my dormers, they have torn the siding off exposing the metal flashing! These little animals have continued doing this from the day the painters left until today, off and on. Does anyone have any idea how to stop this? And yes, I know, shoot them. I don't want to kill them, just make them stop the destruction. I know it sounds crazy, but the only thing I can think of is the paint that is making them do this. They don't seem to prefer the green or the white, which IS called White Chocolate. Thanks for any info.
