You have clearly never had to try to remove a family of the little flipers from inside your roof space!!

A couple of years ago we took something like a dozen out over the course of the winter - that includes the bodies of the ones that the dog killed (a successful bit of training on my part!) and the one that I clubbed with the fire poker.

Thankfully they didn't do too much damage - especially as they started attacking some of the insulation on our heat pump refrigerant feed - although we should replace some of the insulation to get rid of their sh*t and the pee stains ...

Happy for them to live in the forest around us ... but the moment that they come near the house they transform into mobile targets!!!!

Cute, sure. I'll grant that. But cute does not angelic make! Yes, they can be VERY much a nuisance and they can do a lot of damage. Which is what they have taught me to think of when I see them.
Must be the grey squirrels you have across the pond (and increasingly in the UK) that you're talking about.

Never heard of our red squirrels doing anything like that.
