Squirrels destroyed my car's AC with walnuts

The squirrels in my yard have been a constant source of frustration over the past year.

First they started by wreaking havoc with my two bird feeders that I have in my backyard.

Bird seed isn’t cheap, so when I discovered that my feeders were getting emptied daily because of two greedy squirrels, I wasn’t happy. As much as I hate those little buggers, I would never put out lethal traps or try to shoot them with a pellet gun. I tried to capture them without hurting them and then release them in a wooded area a mile away. No matter how many times I captured and released squirrels from my yard, they were always replaced by new ones each time. After they were bored with my bird feeders, they started trying to burrow in my attic through tiny holes they created between my roof facia and the three-foot eave. It took quite a bit of time and effort to catch them all and seal the attic for good after searching for each and every access point. I thought I was done with those dreaded squirrels, but little did I know, they were silently spelling disaster for the air conditioning system in my pickup truck. They managed to crawl into the air vent for the car’s AC, and then started filling the air system with walnuts. After so many of the nuts had accumulated, the air pressure was slowed to a standstill and the compressor for the air conditioner fried. I was shocked when my mechanic took my air conditioning system apart and found the mess. I am so livid with the squirrels in my yard and I have no idea what to do now. No matter what I try, they seem to come back and cause even more damage.
