Is any gardener has squirrel problem ?
They dig the soil , eat all the green apricot , pull the young plant in the pot ect... they are so terrible .
Please give me some tips to prevent that happen .
Any advise would appreciated .
You have to use barriers to keep them away from pots. Make a cage of wire mesh, called "chickenwire", and put the pots in it.
Small garden areas can have a cage over them you remove to work.
I don't know how to keep them out of trees.
I cured my problem with old fashioned lead poisoning. It took several years to pare the population down to a workable head count.
Over winter squirrels girdled countless Japanese maple trees to get a bit of sugar. Not anymore.
The best way to get rid of squirrels is to use a hav-a-hart trap baited with peanut butter and then just drop the trap into a large tub of water. They don't hold their breath long. I use the hav-a hart trap so I can release curious cats (like my own).
But the water dip is fast, final, and as humane as I can manage in suburbia.
