Rodent protection methods
After the brutal winter that I had last year with pocket gophers and mice, I decided that I'd better get a bit of protection around some of my baby trees. I know that there is the white wrap that you can put around them. Our neighbour used it and something chewed right through it. But, a friend of my son's worked in exterminating for awhile and he maintains that rodents hate steel wool. Anybody have any thoughts of what could happen if I wrapped them in steel wool? I think I would also put some saran wrap around the steel wool. Then, it wouldn't disintegrate into the surrounding soil so much. Any thoughts - pros or cons?
