cannot imagine 50 squirrels coming out of my backyard! if 3 were "disappeared", that would be about the entire population on this side of the road.
there's all of one single squirrel here back on the other side of the large ditch and it usually stays back there in that tree line. once in a while it will come through the yard, but i don't encourage it in any manner. we also have the semi-feral kitty around and the hawks...
the most i have seen at a time in the back part of the hedge was a group of five squirrels - i'm pretty sure they were all related. they didn't hang around or last for long.
as for noise, some years ago we had a juvenile woodpecker decide the side of the house here on my room was a good sounding board. thank goodness after chasing them away a few times it did not return. we see and hear them in the trees along the treeline - i leave dead wood standing for them to have places to feed and nest.
