The mesh may be blocking the sunshine, which can keep plants from flowering so the mesh may not be the answer to the problem. It's difficult to deter pesky squirrels and sometimes the only solution is to cage your vegetable garden on all sides plus the top with sturdy chicken wire. I wish there were an easier solution.
