    OK, Where and how do they land?
    Are they a pest to you or do you enjoy them?

    Enjoy,

    It's not my invention but I would imagine about three streets over!
    They dont actually bother me. I just get a kick out of the lengths some people go through to get rid of them. This one and another I saw that someone rigged up a sporting clays launcher with a basket of peanuts and launched them.

    I'm sure they are fine Jim, they are just one of the rare breeds of flying squirrels.

    I have no issues with squirrels here, if I did, it wouldn't be the first time I've had squirrel for dinner.

    Bet that would work with chipmunks also. I will have to look into surgical tubing this weekend while we are doing our monthly shopping. That is great.
    It wasn't a party unless it involved fire, an ATV, a chain saw and whiskey.

    Almost certainly they are landing in my tomato patch. The dadgumdagnabbitfrickenfratchit squirrels are eating my tomatoes as fast as they turn pink. And where I live I can't shoot my gun to eliminate the problem.

    Maybe I can rig up a squirrel flinger like the one in the video and send 'em back to wherever they came from.....

    Squirrels are tasty tree rats.
    Mike, the problem is, you are not supposed to let those tomatoes past the green stage. Nothing better than green fried tomatoes.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    We don't have any tomatoes yet to worry about this year, but last year the little buggers would take one or two bites out of every ripe tomato. Just maddening.

    We at least got the rabbits fenced out, and now are going to attempt to 'chipmunk' proof it. Probably a fools errand, but have to try something. Those home grown tomatos are good as gold and I absolutely live for them every summer...
