If squirrels know this much about procreation and how to thin out another breed then they're a lot smarter than we give them credit for.

They are not dumb by any means. My sister and her husband live in Indiana on 10 acres and are overrun with red squirrels, on the occasion you do find a fox squirrel they are normally chewed up in that area. The red squirrels actually chew thru the trim boards on their house to get into the attic. Their reflexes are also lightening quick. At my other house we had a large tall wood privacy fence behind my woodpile which was a hotel for chipmunks and red squirrels. I could fire a shot with my air rifle and they would bob their heads and sure enough there would be a hole in the fence right behind their head! Have had that happen many times then learned to aim for there belly and then they couldn't duck that low.

.22 shot shells work wonders in that kind of situation.

To give you an idea how small the shot is, .22 LR shot shells typically have #12 shot. The next smallest size, #13, is also known as "dust" and you don't have to worry much about over-penetration with either. The individual pellets just don't have very much energy.
