Squirrels are already eating pecans
If you are seeing a lot of squirrel damage in your pecan grove at this time of year, shooting the varmints is about your only option. We have been running conibear traps all summer long with good success. However, once the new crop enters the dough stage, our success at trapping squirrels goes way down. It seems that the squirrels prefer the new "green" nuts to the old crop nuts we use to bait the traps.
It time for a 22 caliber rifle and a steady aim.
