Squirrels are a nuisance in our neighborhood and I was wondering if there was a legal way of exterminating them.


Toni Wheeler, a staff attorney for the city, said: "According to the (Kansas) Department of Wildlife and Parks, if squirrels are a nuisance, a citizen may eliminate the squirrels.

"However, it is unlawful to discharge a firearm in the city limits. The Wildlife and Parks Department does not trap squirrels but does rent traps to people. You can call (785) 273-6740 to inquire about squirrel traps. Local pest control companies may also be equipped to eliminate squirrels that are a nuisance."
