How do I prevent squirrels from destroying my outdoor chair cushions?
Cori Widen on Jun 03, 2017Ugh, they are the worst! There are a number of things that you can do -- plant lavender in pots around the area; they dislike the scent.- make a spray with pepper sauce and water; spray around and on the furniture consistently when you're not out there. It dries quickly but helps repel them anyway.- squirrels love to jump from trees to furniture, so trim back the trees in the areaHelpful Reply
DORLIS on Jun 04, 2017Walmart has a vinyl box for deck storage of things. It is large enough to take the cushions so you can put them away when not in use. That is about the only thing I can come up with as I have problems with them also. There is a smell that is attracting them.Helpful Reply
