Neighborhood squirrels are anything BUT good neighbors.
They have made a smorgasbord of my carefully planted flower bulbs on numerous occasions.
Last fall, however, hubs put chicken wire on top of our front yard round flower bed.
The squirrels may have been able to stick their paws into the wire openings but they sure as heck were unable to bring the bulbs out!
This spring, at last, we have lovely muscari (purple hyacinths) and yellow tulips that survived and are prospering, all thanks to chicken wire.
(Now if I could only think of a way to put it all around the bird feeders so the bushy tailed ones cannot rob every grain from the "boidies.")
I do admire the squirrels' persistence and hard work ethic but just wish they would go to someone else's outdoor restaurant!
HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT A WAY TO DETER SQUIRRELS FROM CAUSING HAVOC IN YOUR YARD?
