How do I keep squirrels away from my nuts?
I spent a lot of time this past summer/autumn gathering acorns and hickory nuts of all types. white oaks, red oaks, shagbark, shellbark and everything inbetween.
I prepared a large site for my planting and then planted the nuts all in straight rows. I marked my rows with masonry line and stakes so I would know where to not roundup in the spring.
Those damn squirrels - they used my masonry line as a guide and dug up nearly all my nuts. I put up a rabbit fence to keep the rabbits out for when the saplings come up in the spring - but i'm guessing that a rabbit fence will do nothing to stop the squirrels.
Does anyone have experience at keeping squirrels out of direct planted acorns, hickory nuts, walnuts?
