Here are a few ideas if you are having issues with squirrels in your garden.
You can try a mesh covering, but that can be difficult because squirrels are so agile, and can chew through most things. One of your best options is to use a squirrel deterrent, such as predator urine. You can buy it at many garden stores, and it usually has good results. It might even deter other animals too such as rabbits and deer.
You also can use spicy things like, cayenne pepper, ground chili peppers, and red pepper flakes. Just sprinkle around and on the plants that are being eaten, so that the squirrels decide that they don’t like them anymore. If you are having troubles with squirrels eating your birdseed you could try mixing cayenne pepper in with that. Birds can’t taste the cayenne so they won’t be turned off by it.
So that is my very quick post about deterring squirrels! I hope that your gardens are all doing well despite all the pests! Thanks for reading, and have a great rest of your day.
