High school teacher provides free ground squirrel control on weekends and school holidays. Hiding in a small blind with 360 degrees view, I use quiet subsonic .22 ammo (soft lead so won't ricochet) with quality scope and tripod to efficiently dispatch squirrels within 80 yard radius (4 acres). Prefer larger farms (orchards?) with serious infestation and good visibility in counties near Sacramento, but will travel to extended Bay Area in the summer to escape the heat. Very experienced, responsible, and sympathetic to organic farmers who have few non-toxic means to deal with this pest.
