    I personally have the idea of soaking a peanut in poison then tying it to a rope which is tied to the trigger of a gun pointed at the nut. Under neath the nut of course will be about 10 pounds of C-4 attached to a detonator activated my a motion sensor.

    actually, you really can buy poison peanuts online... but unfortunately anything that eats the squirrel also dies [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    The problem with killing them is new ones immediately move in to the territory so that wont work. Honestly, the only thing you can do is to build cages to put the plants in out of hardware cloth. This works, and it is the only thing I have found that does. I have a cat that will lie there and watch the squirrels as they dig through my pots, and what the squirrels don't get, the birds do. Next season it will be a screen house for my plants. I have to find a way to keep the wasps from my Sarracenia pitchers as well, so a screenhouse seems like a go.

    There are squirrel repellants out there...

    May as well kill them anyway, squirrel soup is the bomb! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    Put bamboo poles in some of the pots, and tie silver bright shiny ribbons on them, that keeps the birds out for me.

    As for the wasps, gently stuff cotton into the pitchers.

    Hmmm, suirrel repelent sounds good, but I have never seen it offered around.

    The birds laugh at things like that around here. I tried hanging old CD's that spun in the sun. Didn't work.

    Too many pitchers to keep up with the stuffing I'm afraid. I do stuff some of them, but can't keep up with it over the summer.

    A nice pellet gun would do wonders. So what if more move in? Shoot them, too. Just make sure you get some squirl recipes first. Don't want to waste all that good meat!
