The Q&A Archives: Squirrels

Question: Squirrels digging out bulbs and digging dirt out of our newly planted plant beds and pots. Do you have any solution for me? It is a daily ritual for me now to replant or to add more soils into our pots and our raised bed. Thank you.

Answer: Squirrels are such a pest! You could try the commercially formulated repellents including pepper wax spray, spreading thorny branches on the soil surface, or spreading chicken wire on the soil surface. A pet cat or dog on patrol can also be helpful in scaring them away.
