Unlike some wildlife species, tree squirrels are treated as game animals in every state where found. Thus, there are often restructions on times when tree squirrels may be controlled. In areas of high human population, there may be restrictions on ways in which squirrels may be controlled. Finally, because of the human affection for squirrels, there may be places where effective control is almost impossible.
