||This trap mounts right on the soffit and catches the squirrel when it exits.

My Answer: Sorry to hear about your crazy hounds. No, moth balls absolutely will not work. You need to trap and remove the squirrels.

Probably the most common human/wildlife conflict nationwide is the one between people and squirrels. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is an agile and common suburban and urban animal, and it loves to chew and explore. They frequently raid the birdfeeder, but this isn't a big
problem. The real problem is that squirrels commonly seek out places in which to live, and this commonly includes human dwellings - attics, crawl spaces, walls, chimneys, and more. They chew and often cause damage inside buildings, to wood and electrical wires.
The only way to permanently solve a squirrel problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and
fix those openings, after the animals have been trapped and removed, of course. One-way exclusion devices also work very well for squirrel problems in buildings. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Squirrels page.
