Damned Squirrels!!


I'm really pissed now! All my flower seedlings that I transplanted have been eaten . . . BY SQUIRRELS!! Yes, those cute little furry creatures that everyone loves. Those nasty little bastards have eaten all my plants. My hollyhocks, larkspurs, yarrow, and bachelor's buttons are all gone. They couldn't reach the tomatoes, peppers, green beans or peas, but that's just a matter of time before they figure out the chicken wire cage we made to protect them.
At first, I thought it might be insects feeding on my flowers. I never thought for one fucking second that squirrels would do that. But I saw it with my own eyes at 6 a.m. Saturday morning when I let the dogs outside. So, now David and I are wondering what we can do without killing them. We already tried firing plastic BB's to deter them but it did no good last year. The little fuckers ate all of the tomatoes and other veggies we had planted. All though, I did manage to can quite a bit of the veggies they didn't get to but, they still cleaned us out. I'm going crazy thinking of what to do without committing murder.

  1. You could try live-trapping them in a cage (such things do exist specifically for squirrels) and then driving them far, far away to release them (so they can't make it back to your neighbourhood). I believe 30 miles is the recommended minimum distance. I know this because My Rare One is in a Game of Thrones struggle with squirrels as well. Let's just say that the GOT metaphor is apt in her case and leave it at that.

  4. I don't know what you could do. The little buggers are persistent. I have just come to accept them.
