|I have a squirrel eating or at least chewing my young leatherleaf viburnum. Any recommendations on how to keep the squirrels from eating/chewing this shrub?|
|You might be able to deter the squirrel by using a hot pepper wax spray on the plant, or using an animal repellent labeled for squirrels. These can usually be found at the garden center. |
If the plant is small, you might also be able to make a cage to fence the squirrel out.
In my experience this type of squirrel damage is seasonal, and as far as I can tell, somewhat inexplicable, so it should stop sooner or later. The plant should grow back.
