Squirrels are invading
 
Specifically red squirrels; So...I want to cull the heard. Live traps and cats and rat traps and high speed projectiles are not working so well. I'd like to make an electrocution station. Sounds bad but better than having them drown in a bucket (that doesn't work either).
Any one that might have ideas I'd love to hear. My idea has been proven not good enough, 120vac isn't enough to kill unless they stay in contact.

Build a voltage multiplier to boost the voltage.

A transformer? or capacitor? I'd need a circuit and values...
I see good examples online, but no one seems to say what components to use.

Squirrels are a huge pain in the A**. I'm also tired of not finding a good enough to humanly kill them. I've just heard there is natural repellents on the market. Some are made with the urine of squirrels’ predators. These are meant to be sprayed around gardens to keep squirrels away.

Not sure how much effective this will be. :confused:

My main problem is that they are taking liberties under the hood of our cars.
If I knew how to prepare walnut shells for media blasting, I would take over the food supply and they would just go away!!

A few ideas for your consideration:

I think I figured out the trick. Apple slices.... I might still putz around with electric for under the hood.
