if your plants are in pots put some chicken wire around them. they will stop. if they are in a flower bed and you want to lay the chicken wire out there you could. i have used it and it works. the other thing that works is cocoa bean shells. they smell great but, only last so long...

Hi Keziah

Blood meal is usually effective in repelling squirrels, but it has a side effect of attracting dogs (and possibly raccoons, bear, coyotes, fox, etc), so kinda depends on how you feel about trading pests...

Also, you have to re-apply after watering or rain...

Hadn't heard about the cocoa mulch - it'd be great as long as you're not on a diet (or hung over ) - the sweet smell would drive you nuts...
