Dryer vent pipe for chipmunks and squirrels protection.
My 4 yr old asian pears finally is loaded with fruits. After I thin them I was expecting a good harvest. Sadly, my 80 pears was stripped down to 15 pears in 2 days. They also got all my plums. My friend told me to get dryer vent pipes and wrap it around the trunk so they can't climb. His trees are stil loaded with fruits. He has 2-3 ft vent pipes on all the trunk. Has anyone tried this method? Does it work? What are your ways to protect your fruits from these criters? I have shot many but it never end.
