i dont know why shooting thems out of the question but if its in a neighbor hood or something try a pellet gun but in most places trapping requires a lisence and i dont know of any traps to kill a squirrel but a small live trap should do the job just fine and you can "relocate" them to somewhere else

when i use to live intown we had problems with them chewing up stuff in our yard like electrial wires and tht sort of stuff and i was in town so i couldent shoot a rifle or anything because the neighbors would call the cops so i got a pelletgun at walmart with a scope for like $40 and id just pump it up 10 times when i saw one and crack the door and pop him with a pellet it did the trick everytime and no one ever noticed id usually wait a few minutes to make sure no one was looking then id go out and toss him in a bag or something inconspicuious(sp?) and then take it to the garbage but no one ever noticed or said anything

Are you sure it's squirrels and not coons ?
If so get a Hav-a-hart live trap and a license to use it . Tree rats are suckers for peanut butter . Homemade deadfall traps work well too , as do wire snares if legal .
If it's coons see if your town allows archery hunting for nuisance critters inside the town limits and start pounding them .
Don't do anything illegal .

you can snare them.Take a stick about 3-4'' X 5-6 foot long hammer in some nails about 8-10" apart,almost all the way leave enough of the head sticking up to tie or wrap some heavy fishing line or strong pliable wire.make some small loops,( snares) lean the stick against a tree where the squirrels would run up and down it and bait it with peanut butter. Or in your case kernels of corn.

get some snare wire and make a slip knot on the one end and wrap the other end around a stick. place several snares in the stick and lean it on somthin around the corn. the squirrel will run along the stick and will stick his head through the loop, and as he runs it will tighen he will then fall off and be hung.

If they are bothering your corn you may try a wooden victor rat trap. Put a gob of peanut butter on the trigger and screw the trap to a board leaning against the tree. This will kill all but the largest fox squirrels.
