There’s a baby boom going on with grey squirrels in the Northeast and fruit growers say their up to no good. The population growth is due to the mild winter and a bumper crop of nuts. The growth is the largest some experts have seen in 33 years. The squirrels go after more than just nuts, they love apples and can eat half a trees fruit in about three hours. Squirrels not only eat crops but they can also kill trees like at South Carolina University, more than 100 mature trees have been killed in the past several years by grey squirrels.
