    Try mothballs at the bases they don’t like the smell after it rains Check to see if the need replacing the dollar store sells them

    Hi Mam: If they are chewing on yourstuff, spray it with a mixture of 3/4 water and 1/4 oil of clove (you can get it in the candy making section of the store, it's a bottle about 2 1/2 inches high and only costs a couple of bucks). Put this in a spray bottle and spray whatever you don't want chewed or clawed. Works for cats and dogs, too. Won't harm them, smells great, tastes terrible:( Good luck

  • Get a bag of blood meal from the nursery, spread near. The squirrels don't like blood smell at all
