Answer: Well, you tried all the usual methods! Here are a few more possibilitites: Remove all cover, such as tall grass, weeds, woodpiles, etc from your garden area to make it less attractive to the critters. Plant a lush patch of clover, alfalfa, or soybeans strategically away from the garden to lure them away. Try sprinkling dried blood, blood meal, and/or talcum powder around their favorite plants. Try bending the top 12 inches or so of your fence so it faces away from the garden. This will make it difficult for the stocky creatures to scale over. If possible, bury the fence to a depth of 18 inches, at least in their favorite tunnelling spots. Try placing a strip of black plastic around the perimeter of the garden, extending a few feet inside the garden fence as well. Use an electric fence wire just outside your fence, 4 to 5 inches off the ground.
