Answer: Squirrels and chipmunks are big pests of bulbs. I'd suggest crushing some eggshells and placing some in each hole before planting the bulb. That may discourage them. Any home remedy spray such as cayenne pepper, moth balls or garlic may work, but onlyfor a limited amount of time. A good cat might help chase them away also. Trapping with a Hav a Hart trap may eliminate the biggest offenders. Just make sure you relocate them at least 5 miles away from your house or they'll be back.
