They chewed through the wood and then through sheet rock into a closet

    When you replace the wood, try putting some kind of metal screen material between the sheet rock and the wood, they may not be able to get through that if the mesh is not big enough for them to get through.

    Be sure to cut tree branches far away from the house if there are any. We had the same problem. Also caulk and repaint cracks in the wood to prevent them from breaking /chewing the siding.

    The easiest way is trap and re-locate to a park or somewhere else, # 2 find out what is attracting the squirrels and remove (as in nuts or whatever lying around) #3 trees close to your house check for hollow spots and fill in with concrete where you can do so safely.
