The Q&A Archives: Animal Eating Plants

Question: I have an unknown animal(s) that is eating my Petunias, Zucchini, Bean and Tomato leaves to the point of rendering the plants useless. Is there anything natural that I can do to keep the animal(s) away from my crops?

Answer: You might try one of the repellent sprays, either a homemade garlic and/or pepper concoction or one of the commercial repellents such as "Get Away". The latter is available through Burpee, 1-800-888-1447.
