Squirrels are not my favorite today

Covid-19 is causing all sorts of crazy behaviors! Even amongst the squirrels!

Both of our cars have been besieged by squirrels in the last several days/weeks. Apparently the insulation that goes around the wires in both vehicles has some sort of soy-based component that the squirrels love. Hence the fact that cords and wires have been chewed through on both cars by squirrels. The local mechanic recommended using a monthly pepper spray intended to keep squirrels out of bird feeders. We have one car back from the shop and well sprayed. The second one we will get back on Monday and will spray again. Not to mention a nuisance this is also an expense we don’t need.

But all in all, I guess the squirrels are hoarding up for another round of covid-19 just like the rest of us…! Sorry to make a joke out of a very serious situation with covid-19. But a little humor is needed in these very serious times!

  1. That’s so strange! You could try leaving Oh Henry chocolate bars on the lawn of a neighbour you don’t like, and maybe that would distract the squirrels. I once came across a squirrel who had found one, and he was opening up the package to have a snack. πŸ˜‰
