HOW TO keep squirrels from knawing on plastic lattice?
It took forever for me to finally find someone to replace the cracking lattice on my screened in porch and nothing but cracking was happening it was very unsightly. NOW A FEW YEARS LATER SQUIRRELS are chewing the lattice not in one spot but everywhere. I heard peppermint oil would keep them away, so I bought some and now they are migrating everywhere on the lattice....I even had to sew part of the screen. Seems like they like this one section TG more than anywhere else hopefully it stays like that and they do not have the whole family come in for a family buffet. Ordered more peppermint spray to keep them away but at this point I do not know if this is going to work (this was before the new damage happened). I am at my wits end and REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IF THEY TOTALLY DESTROY THIS LATICE. IT WAS COSTLY LET ALONE VERY TIME CONSUMING trying to find someone to do this work. I do not know if the person that put it up would be willing to come back and fix the damage.
I was thinking of putting the metal that you put on the bottom half of a screen door but that would have to go on the whole section, approx. 15' x 6'..Do they eat aluminum I know they like to chew on the pipes on the roof to sharpen there teeth, per THIS OLE HOUSE. REALLY DO NOT WANT WOOD, ROTTING DOWN SOUTH NOT GOOD. HELP, I NEED HELP. Need ventilation after all it is a screened in porch and cannot afford windows..5-20-20 Stay safe
