Learn how to cook them. They are a food source.

I've had problems with chipmunks and pine squirrels around the house and orchard up until this year. I've shot, trapped and poisoned them non stop for several years now. So far this year I only had to shoot 2 chipmunks and trapped another 4 of the little buggers. You'll never get rid of them completely, but with persistence you can control them. I keep baited traps out all spring and summer.

I have at the moment about 20 squirrels in the freezer. I make squirrel biscuits.

Boil the squirrels down and remove the meat from the bones. Then I make a roux with flour and butter. 1/2 cup of each. Add onions to the roux and cook until brown. Add chicken broth about 2 cups and a can of peas or mixed vegetables. Cook until thickened. The I just put a can of biscuits on the top and bake until golden brown.

Tell the grandkids it's chicken. They'll never know šŸ¤£šŸ¤£

It's a win win situation. If you stay on top of it you will eventually cut down their numbers.

I found this funny. . . It's amazing what you can pass off as chicken.

Does anyone have some tried and true methods of keeping squirrels off fruit trees? I can't sit in the backyard all day with a bb rifle and even if I trap and drown them they'll stink up my garbage bin until the next trash day. I live in city limits and don't wanna deal with this crap.
If the trees are far enough apart that the squirrels can't jump from one tree to another, then you can put baffles on the trunks of the trees you want to protect.
One thing I would change is to use flashing tape instead of duct tape.
