I’m so annoyed with those tiny four-legged garden destroyers that I’m about to scream!
They chew up the lawn, they overturn all of my flowers and they constantly toss the dirt out of my flower boxes. I caught one squirrel mid dirt toss and I sprayed it with the water hose. The little bugger took off, and I was left with mud all over the deck.
I’ve read that squirrels don’t like pepper, cayenne or bitter substances. I guess their palate can’t stand the spicy stuff. I’m not sure if it works, but I pretty much emptied a can of black pepper in two of my flower boxes. Hopefully I wont go into sneezing fits every time I play with my flowers.
Although squirrels may look cute, they’re really a gardener’s nuisances. If you’ve had any luck in deterring squirrels from chewing through your garden, please share your remedy. I’m just about a wits end.
I keep saying that living green isn’t always easy, but it doesn’t have to be this frustrating.
