I had planted 2 banana plants. They were both eaten by prairie dogs. How do I stop the prairie dogs from eating them again?

I'm afraid your only option is to place a barrier between your plants and the prairie dogs. Make a cylinder out of either hardware cloth or chicken wire, at least 2' high and set it around the bases of your plants (or completely around them if they are small). The barrier will keep the wildlife away from them. Best wishes with your garden!
