rid garden of squirrels
This is a tough one. My solution has been to give my dog, a terrier, free run of my property...squirrels do not feel welcome to my yard or garden so they tend to stay away (and I've got loads of mature oak trees!)...barring that, I'd try Messina Wildlife's Squirrel Stopper...it's a liquid organic animal repellant and is available at many Lowe's stores...$12.99 for a 1-quart sprayer...visit their web site at messinawildlifemanagement.com. Hope this helps.
