22 varmint ammo

I have some 22 varmint shot shells. How effective are they? If, for example, I had 3 or 4 squirells living in my attic, how close would I have to be to them for the shot to be effective?

You may have to test on a water bottle at 15 yds.

Those things are good for snakes just beyond striking distance. Will squirrels let you get that close?
