    Will cats hunt and kill squirrels? Only reason I ask is because we really don't have squirrels here so I'm not sure if they can fight cats off or not.

    If cats will hunt them, then it might be an easy fix to get a couple of feral cats from the local shelter and bring them home.

    I know barn cats will, but they prefer easier prey like rabbits.

    Some cats will. We had a big ole tom cat who would hunt them. Sadly he disappeared. Our only outside cat now is an eighteen year old queen. She would/still does hunt chipmonks and mice with a passion but she totally ignores squirrels.

    Not sure if it works for squirrels as we don't get them, but works wonders for rabbits. Get some blood and bone fertilizer and make a border around the garden, orchard of whatever. Doesn't need to be thick or wide, but does need to have no huge breaks in the border. Rabbits wont cross it, even when there are super tasty veges that other side, they just don't. You need to do it regularly, especially if it rains. Might be worth a try if the squirrels are coming in at ground level, but if they are tree hopping their way in it won't work.

    If you don't want to kill them you could try putting the fear of god into them! A few well placed shots with a paintball gun might thin them out a bit. That way you may get a few of your figs before they do. Good Luck squirrels are too smart for their own good! You accidently step on your pet squirrel and he has got you cracking his peanuts for him for a month! Yes I had a pet squirrel, His name was Bucky.
