How To Keep Squirrels From Eating Flowers

Question From: K. Imhausen - Plainfield, Indiana, United States
Q: How do I get rid of squirrels? They eat my flowers and dig them up and chew on any thing wood they can on my front porch.

A: A product called Hot Pepper Wax is said to be effective. Some folks just sprinkle cayenne pepper on plants. It must be replaced after it rains. Check with your local hardware store for products to use on wood that will not stain it. A blood based product called Plantskydd is effective, but not for use on wood decks. The granular product can be used in the garden. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
