Trap and Remove Method:
If there are so many San Diego squirrels in your attic, you can try to trap them and release them at a certain far distance from where they cannot return. You need to buy a humane squirrel cage trap and set it at attic entry holes. Generally, squirrels stay active during morning and evening hours; but when they have babies inside, they can also visit in between. Once you catch the mother squirrel in the trap, safely remove the babies altogether, and leave the whole family at a safe place where they can survive.

One Way Doors:
Here is another humane technique to remove squirrels from the attic. Simply block all the entry and exit holes for a squirrel by leaving just one. Install a tension flap on this entry point that allows squirrels to simply move out of the attic but do not provide a path to get in. in this way, all the squirrels can be moved out of the space.
