Angry Squirrels

Please Help!!!

Anyone that has any tips on keeping the squirrels from digging up my bulbs & around new planting would be appreciated. I DO NOT want to use chemicals or kill them.

Thanx much,

You could install netting or fencing to cover the plants. You might set up a feeding station for the squirrels in another part of the yard and serve them some corn or other delicacy. That might distract them. They are apparently digging your plants to eat them, so feeding them elsewhere might be the ticket.

You can get some repellents. Some work better than others. It might be that some red peppers ground up and mixed with water could be sprayed on everything. The taste might deter them. The red pepper won't hurt anything, it just has a hot taste.

Hope this helps.
