The Q&A Archives: garden pests

Question: What can I use to keep small animals from eating my tomatoes?

Answer: How disappointing to have some critter munching on your tomatoes! I'm afraid there's not much you can do except to create a barrier between your plants and whatever is feasting on your harvest. Depending upon the size of your plants you may be able to cage them in chicken wire or drive stakes into the garden and drape bird netting over the stakes. If you decide to do this, be sure to securely anchor the bottom of the netting or chicken wire cages so the creatures don't dig under.

Hope this works for you!
