Mary Sue; I did a search on the net and found a number of references on relocating squirrels. I have posted one source below. Arnold Relocating Squirrels Many people decide that they just can’t live with the squirrels. The squirrels may be doing too much damage to electrical wiring, in the garden, or to human structures. Squirrels can be live trapped. Be sure to check with your state agencies for any regulations that may apply to trapping animals. Squirrels have to be transported at least a few miles (five is considered safe) away, or they may find their way back home. One problem with relocating is that if the squirrel is relocated to an already populated area, the newcomer may create a disruption. The disruption could cause the relocated squirrel to be driven out of the area by more aggressive squirrels or be the cause of existing squirrels being driven out. This can result in either one being homeless and without adequate food source. Some squirrels have been known to be traumatized to the point of death during transportation. If squirrels are removed from an area, it usually creates a vacuum that is filled eventually by more squirrels.
