The Q&A Archives: squirrels

Question: these squirrels are stealing my vergetables and taking my plants out of the ground,help- how can i stop this besides putting a completely covered fence around everything which can be expensive

Answer: Squirrels can be difficult in the garden. Sometimes covering the plants with a sumemr weight floating row cover fabric, especially the seedlings, will deter the squirrels until the plants are too big to be attractive. Or you could try one of the spray on or granular repellents labeled for squirrels. Hot pepper wax sprays may also be helpful.
