What can I do about the squirrels destroying my garden and flower beds
As much as I love to garden, I have been so discouraged by the critters sabotaging my efforts. I can look out my kitchen window and see squirrels taking a dust bath in my planter and destroying the limbs. I may beat on the window pane, to no avail. Also when I check out my garden, they will dig up the roots and leave them exposed. The problem is that there are so many and you can't shoot them. It is also a violation to poison them (because it is possible to poison a pet by mistake) if this method is attempted. Some have suggested putting up a net fence around my garden (which is not feasible or doable for me). Others suggest mothballs to deter them. However, that can get into the soil and ultimately into the food I am growing. Deer repellent and blood bone meal have also been mentioned as well. I am open to all suggestions.
