Don't let the bright eyes and bushy tails fool you. These squirrels are up to no good.
In southern Vermont, Clarence Boston said he hasn't seen such an infestation of pests in the 33 years he has been an orchardist on 60 farms in five states.
"It's leaving me reeling. I'm sort of used to getting kicked around; I'm a farmer," said Mr. Boston, who estimates squirrels destroyed about half of his most profitable variety of apples after a season already made tough by the weather. "I was not expecting the next plague to be red squirrels."
