      Hi, Thanks. In the past they have gotten caught in the net and we had to cut it. Also, I think they are tunneling under because we had fence around it.

    You can trap them and move them--at least 5 miles way is what I have heard. Or you can provide them with another food source away from your garden. They love sunflower seeds.

      Hi GK, Thanks. There are too many to trap. We do have bird feeders and they do hang around them. But they still find a way to get the seeds.
