Some gardeners have found success using the repellent sprays such as GetAway Squirrel Repellent or Animal Repellent (Burpee carries these -- 1-800-487-5530.) as well as homemade garlic and/or pepper based sprays. Other gardeners report that a household cat or dog or even a snake in residence in the garden can also act as a deterrent. I' m so sorry about your critters!
