    You may be able to construct a "cage" of sorts out of screening or a stronger material if needed. It will take some smarts to keep the squirrels out of it(dunno if they will attempt to gnaw or dig to get to the plants or not). If you want a clear view at all times, perhaps a pane of plexiglass would be in order.

    For larger collections, unsure of what you would do. Its not really that you should not kill all the squirrels(ethics aside), its just that the above method, providing you can work it out, will be far less expensive in the long run.

    yes.. the humans are the real pests. my mom wanted to open my room's window and so everything fell! then she didn't know where anything was supposed to go so when I came back there was this big stain on the carpet, the pots outside of their trays, my bromiliad didn't have a flower spike anymore (just when it was starting to flower!!!!), etc etc.... the good thing is that nothing died. (just the flower spike)

    and humans are the stupid ones that think wetlands = wastelands (there's no such thing as a wasteland) and go there to build houses and destroy everything.

    FTG,

    When you think about it, squirrels ARE smart and might shy away if you shoot a few rounds in the air...

    Nflytrap,

    Well the thing is, a lot of people cant afford strong durable screening, and besides that doesnt work, I tried it, they just chew through or dig... Squirrels look all fat and puffy on the outside cause of their fur, but they can squeeze through a 3/4" opening with no problem [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    That stinks Wolf, hope the plants make a fast recovery.

    I'm not stupid, cause i know that wetlands= worth their wieght in gold [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Regards,

    -Spec

    well, apparently a lot of people can't afford anything ... and yet they can afford a gun and keep buying ammunition and all that...
    you just have to buy a good fence once.
    OH and they're doing fine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Fence Too keep out squirrels?

    I think a few rounds in the air might work temporarily, unless you want to imitate a stone fountain or something. Eventually either they would get use to constant loud noise or your neighbors would get pissed.

    and speaking of pissed off, that kind of I'm superior to every animal in this world and I have the right to kill them, squirrels are the same as mites, etc, atitude is the same attitude that breeds horrible things like rattlesnake roundups, animal abuse, projects to exterminate coyotes and wolves, and this:
    http://www.**********.com/cgi-bin....y138363
    and animal experimentation,animal neglect, canned hunts, poaching, and the list can go on and on and on and on.
    I think I'm gonna be sick.... I shouldn't be thinking about all this right before going to bed.
    and the bad thing is that most people don't realize how many stupid people doing stupid things there are in the world...
    people killing mice by putting them in a bucket of water and watch them swim until they're exausted and drown, people dumping gasoline on mice and lighting them on fire and laughing while saying that it looks like a little burning car...
    (my aunt used to do the former and my stepmom told me she once saw these guys doing the latter... but I've seen bad things myself)
