spikey gum balls as deterrent?
As many do, I have problems with that most evil of creatures, the horrible squirrel. They also have two of their minions, chipmunks, living under the slab that makes up my front stoop. I don't have much of a garden, a raised bed I cover for as long as I can and planters, but eventually, the tomatoes are going to get too tall and I have to take the cover off, then the digging will begin. Also, the planters in the front really can't be covered and I am TIRED of the chipmunks making off with my veggies I grow there.
Has anyone tried mulching with the spikey gum tree balls? I was thinking that maybe the sly little rodents wouldn't like having their feet poked. Or, will they just push them to one side and laugh their furry butts off?
