Funny Solution to Apple Eating Critter Problem
Thought I'd share this, because it's a wild solution, but it worked!
We live on the edge of the land of many critters. Our property runs down a hill across a seasonal stream, and half up the other side. It is occupied of many creatures. Our neighbors across the ravine have the same scenario, so that ravine is free land for nature.
Part of our land is fenced in, and at the edge of the fence, is a wonderful Anna Apple. We had a hard time getting any apples that didn't have pecks or bites in them prior to them even being ripe!
So I read that human urine scares critters away, and encouraged my DH to go stake his territory, and pee on that apple tree. Finally, he did, and we have had NO critter bitten apples since that day. They are big, ripe, delicious, crisp and juicy!
I really scrub those apples well prior to eating!! I'm just amazed that this silly solution actually worked!
