Yep. it's like a plague. We need some seriously cod weather to kill them all off. As it is, they are getting into bins, tearing open rubbish bags and all the rest, which will include causing damage to property where they get access into roofs and other spaces and then gnaw through insulation and electrical wiring. The latter causing the risk of fires. They should be treated like what they are; arboreal rats.
I know "squirrels are now grey because of interbreeding with rats" is an urban myth but I still can't get the idea out of my mind. People feeding them as stupid as the people feeding pigeons.
