There are no easy answers for deterring pesky critters. About the only sure fire method is to fence your garden off so they can't frolick there. Chicken wire supported on stakes around the perimeter of your garden will work, or you can drive tall stakes around the garden and then drape bird netting over the stakes. Be sure to anchor the bottom of the netting or the critters will duck right under. Best wishes with your garden!
