pests in the garden - Knowledgebase Question

Question by katytxteach

I have something like a possum or squirrel that is eating my strawberries. One of the experts wrote me and suggested a bird net. Will that keep those animals out? Is there anything else that I can try? I put a windmill out there but not sure if that is helping or not yet. Please help.

Other than a physical barricade, you might try spraying one of the critter repellants on your plants (Deer Away, for instance). The only problem with that is you would want to keep it off the berries if you plan to eat them. Just keep it on the foliage and hope the smell deters the pesky critters.
