Animal eating my tomatoes - How do I make them stop?
I have planted tomato plants and have had no trouble until the tomatoes start to ripen. I have had 5 tomatoes half eaten. They have been taken off the vine. Because of this I do believe that it must be an animal instead of an insect. In my neighborhood we have plenty or squirrels, birds and a few small bunnies. I know that birds eat tomatoes so I have tied shiny metallic ribbons all over my tomato cages and fence to the garden. I also put up my life size scarecrow. What else can I do to prevent them from being eaten? Do squirrels or rabbits eat tomatoes??
