I get many phone calls about squirrels and I often talk about how I remove them, perform squirrel control, etc but this post is more about where I find the most troublesome squirrels - in other words, this is about the neighborhoods that seem to have more squirrels causing trouble than the other ones.
Take a look at this map. This is actually part of a larger map showing the last 50 squirrel complaints I have received here at Parker Wildlife Control. I use a software called NWCOPRO that I created to track my calls, and to manage my business within a database. This allows me to stuff like this - something no other company in New Orleans is doing, btw. So - yeah you can be sure this is unique.
You will not find actual documented squirrel complaint information like this even from the Jefferson Parish animal control agency because frankly they lack the documentation and cannot track it.
Here is an image showing the various areas I received these squirrel control phone calls.

Regarding home remedies - noise machines that generate clicks or high frequency noises do no twork to solve an animal problem - SORRY, sound does not go around corners or through walls well at all - this prevents the device from functioning even if it had a remote chance of working without interference! Flashing strobe lights - nope, they just make the house look haunted! Loud music? No again, studies show animals respond well to music - they actually enjoy it! There was recent study published that showed dogs and cats in animal shelters enjoy Reggae the most...lol
The best thing to do is to call in a PRO - like me, if not then someone like me! If I am not available I would refer you to a couple of my competitors, as the truth is there are very few of us who do wildlife control and we just cannot get to every call!
