How can I keep squirrels out of my garden?


How do keep the squirrels off my lanai screen ? Was told to buy rubber snakes at the dollar store and they look real and blow up in the rain but the squirrels still are all over my lanai screen. .Any body have an answer that works?

    I put moth balls in my garden. The squirrels and chipmunks don't like the smell. I don't either, but they stay away. Maybe try putting some near the door. My friend sprays peppermint oil around her door. I would spray some on the screen. Look at a hardware store. She got it at Ace. In the mouse trap/repellent area.

      Moth Balls are rally dangerous to you and your pests. If you truly need to keep pests out of your house get some organic Neem in a small bottle and put it around the door frame. I put this on my waterproof shoes when working down in my garden to keep the snakes and anything else off me. Mosquito's I still use spray or Vicks around my ears.

    I know what a pain they are. Don't laugh, but I had a kitchen window next to a bird feeder and the squirrels drove me crazy. I tried making noise, etc. What finally worked was a squirt gun. Nothing but water in it, but it made them move on to a dry location. It was fun and harmless. The birds were happy and so was I. I've read about sprinklers being used to discourage cats also.
