Make sure you cross a stream or river before you release them.
haha, I do live trap and relocate them all the time, seems if I don;'t go farther than say 7 miles they come back!
I have 3 like traps, and as silly as it sounds, its like a full time job here, as for every one I transport, it seems a new one takes its place just as fast!!
I live in a one road town, a dead end, its about 2 miles long, and the neighbors tell me every time they see a squirrel , they say, its heading to my place ! LOL

and its funny, I have hawks and owls and a LOT of foxes here , not to mention a few neighbors cats in my yard all the time, and Never EVER seen one Catch a squirrel on me here.

cannot even get help that way it seems

I also have a bunch of flying squirrels here too, but I'm OK with them, there only out at night cleaning up what the birds drop out of the feeders
and that's funny too, as most of my bird feeders are hung so grays cannot get to them, BUT a flying one can, but don';t LOL

the Grays are my only issue here really
just too many, and they breed too fast
NO one I know eats them, so I don't hunt them, as I don't shoot what I don't eat, and I don't eat em either LOL

I did some experimenting by spray painting the tails of some of the squirrels, by doing that I found those that didn't have a water barrier came back, those that did have to cross water did not. While they can swim in an emergency, they don't like to.

HAHA< my one property had a stream that ran thru the middle of it, one side was forested land, and other side was mostly crops
seen squirrels from tree stand swimming back and forth all day long on all day sits, carrying a full ear of corn in there mouth swimming back and forth
so, water here doesn't stop them
or not a 15-20 ft wide stream any how LOL

on the funny side, I have also sen MANY try to jump from branch to branch to NOT have to swim and miss and belly flop into the stream, makes time in the stand go by,
also seem a small spike buck once dogging a doe, do a jump into a deep hole, that had about a 10 ft drop from the bank into the stream, talk about cannon ball like splash
I still think of that poor guy as I doubt he had any idea the drop was that big when he was on her tail trying for love, to cut her of

she got away, and all he got was a cold bath LOL

the times you wish you had a video camera rolling!!

Welcome, but I can't tell what you're talking about since your use of the English language is not bad, but the words you used don't relate to a good English translation of what you actually mean. Sorry!

He's a spammer. It clearly says he is from Mumbai India and all those underlined items are stuff he is pimping. I'll send a spammer notification as soon as I post this comment.
