Squirrels Population in our Neighborhood – Critters 3

Thursday, March 24, 2022

I just feel wild squirrels are less and less coming to our backyard at least in the last five years.


There are plenty possible reasons off course.

One important reason might relate to the fact that we never feed them anymore, since we worry the wild squirrels will lack of ability to find food naturally later on.


Other facts, our neighborhood trees infected by fungi diseases, then we cut them down.


As you know that some trees are source of natural foods and shelters for squirrels and many animals.


Then, what other factors may lead to decreasing of squirrel population?

Dead is one of factors which may lead to reducing of squirrel population. Several cause of dying are:

- diseases

- poisoning

- electrick shock

- trauma from falling

- predation


In respect to predation, a squirrel especially a baby squirrel is a target of hawk in our neighborhood:

In addition, we always find dead squirrels on the roads due to hit by cars recently.

  1. In summer, we go to our mountain houses because it is too hot. We often see squirrels in the gardens of our mountain houses. Thanks for your informative sharing...

  4. Oh, our population keeps growing. Maybe we have too many who feed then. Even so, we do occasionally find dead ones. But in the past, some would be just so over weight, too. And of course, the stampede on the roof...sometimes, were squirrels instead of racoons.

  7. Our squirrels eat the bird seeds and they poop on the seeds too..so these guys might be out for revenge on the birds.

  11. We didn't have any squirrels when we moved here, but lately we have a few that seem to have settled into the trees. Unfortunately, we have a few hawks and occasionally find the remains of one in the property.
