The squirrels are digging up my vinca out of my pots and carrying it off. If I could shoot them, I'd have squirrel for dinner mad

What can I use in the pots to keep them away... the cat hair doesn't faze them. I swear I see them :p , at me.

Oh darn! I just saw one at a garage sale and passed it up. I'll see if I can find one. I'm not much for owl statues but I love my flowers so I'll see what I can do. I need to do something fast... my vinca is being drug off all over the yard. They are leaving their winter stash in it's place.... the little buggers mad

Thanks! smile

they do the same thing to me mad the little buggers. just when i think i have scared them off i wake up in the morning and i look at all my planters and the "hit" me durning the night or while i'm at work. i've tried animal fur, some of my own hair but there doesn't seem to be anything that will really work. my mum suggested the statue to me. i haven't gotten one yet but it's worth a try to save the plants good luck thumbup

they are easy to trap.

get a raccoon trap. place birdseed (they love it) on the far end, they walk into it.

In 4 days I caught 8. Now I see them in my neighbor's yard, but they are not in mine.
