Netting to Keep out Squirrels
The squirrels are driving me nuts. I set up my beds last summer and the squirrels dug them up near every day. I purchased a pellet gun and have been leveling things out a bit. I also will be purchasing a trap in the next week.
I purchased some hardware netting but I need input on how it should be placed.
Option 1: Place the netting over top of my beds on the wood. THis lets the plants get light and grow a bit. This also keeps the squirrels completely out. I will have to remove it once the plants grow larger.
Options 2: Place the netting about 1 inch below the surface in the dirt. This will not keep the squirrels out completely, but will limit the damage. This will also, become a seasonal fixture in the ground.
Let me have your thoughts on this please.
