CDs as whirly-gigs

I am fighting a losing battle against a squirell. Darn but he is a smart little thing. He is destroying my apartment deck....the only place I have for out-door gardening. Someone said something about using old cd s or mirrors because they don't like to see themselves. Can I make these into a sort of whirly-gig? Any one have any ideas?

RE: CDs as whirly-gigs

I heard that if you hang them from a string on a shrub or tree, that they will scare away birds and such because of the motion and reflections off the cd. It apparently makes them think there's another critter there and they supposedly get scared and go elsewhere. I'm thinking of trying it myself since there's a couple of persistent squirrels in my yard as well...digging holes all over!

So let's try it and check back later...
