A couple of grey squirrels are causing havoc in my back garden. They're growing incredibly fat off bird food (which I won't stop putting out) and are digging up bulbs/flowers/everything and carrying them into next door's garden and burying them (little fatherlessess!). All conventional techniques have failed - nothing is truly squirrel proof and the cats are too fat/old/lazy/deaf/arthritic to be a deterrent. So - if I want to nail Mr and Mrs Squirrel straight between the eyes with something fast moving and made of metal - how do I go about it? Air rifle? If so, which one? Budget maybe... Â£200 all in. Ability to deal with pestering pidgeons in back garden would be bonus. What calibre? What pellet/round? My back garden does not back on to a road and I would use an appropriate back stop against the fence (5mm plywood enough) despite always firing so pellet/round would continue into soil. Yet there is the road that runs by the house - how does this influence legality? Finally, disposal - I'm not someone who's going to have a recipe for squirrel, nor want one. Do they go in a normal rubbish bn? Composter? Dig a hole in the ground?
