So, I was pretty convinced there were raccoons in my plants.
Until this morning when I opened the front door and saw two squirrels pulling on the bird feeder post. They had it bent clear to the ground and were eating the seeds.
I got mad! I told them I hated them, and never to come back; then I shook my fist at them. Mostly because one of them was digging in a flower pot that was barely beginning to sprout. They had better not have destroyed our flowers.
I went to Farm King and found squirrel repellent. When I pulled back into the drive, there was another squirrel digging at the base of the post. I will have to re-dig and re-place the post.
The repellent is a wolf or fox urine based product, 100% organic, and stinks! It won’t (shouldn’t) scare the birds away, and ought to not harm my produce. I hope it works!!!
