First, shoot the squirrels.
Then, make a fruit fly trap:
Pour an inch or two of vinegar into a cup. add a drop or two of dish soap.
Cover the cup with saran or similar. Poke a bunch of holes in the saran, and set near where the fruit flies congregate.
They smell the vinegar, climb in, and when they come in contact with the vinegar get sucked down into it because of the effect the dish soap has on the surface tension of the vinegar.
Fruit flies only have a life cycle of a couple of days. If you have gotten rid of the places they are breeding, it will not be long before they all die off. I have never had luck with the the fruit fly traps. But it gives you something to do that makes it feel like you are taking action.
