Like most urban gardener, I found myself with a squirrel invasion in my small garden. For the first time I decided to fight back.
Browsing the Internet, I found a few great tips on how to get rid of squirrels without harsh use of chemicals.
Here are the links I dug out (ha ha!) to get rid of those nasty rodents gnawing your precious plants:
- How to repel squirrels out of your garden
- 7 ways to keep squirrels from eating your tomatoes
- Flowers that repel squirrels
- Recipe for a natural squirrel repellent
The tip that keeps coming back is to spray your garden with chili pepper powder, or any kind of hot pepper spice, as it seems to deter the squirrels.
It also seems that shooting the poor beasts is not a long-term solution 😉
