    I guess this is falling on deaf ears, but I highly advocate bird netting as it has worked for me. It has kept out birds, squirrels, cats , dogs , opposums, and raccoons. Cheaper than screen or hardware cloth, and will stretch tight over a light frame. Attach with a staple gun. Easy!! Allows unrestricted sunlight in on your babies too!.

    ehy would you want to keep out birds? I have worked on a survey with those nets, and unless your a expert those things get hoplessly tangled in the fine mesh. I worked for 30 miniuts on a poor Harris's Sparow that was entangled th the web before someone came to help me.
    that makes no logic

    back.
    trying to poison squirrels is so evil!
    and calling THEM evil is evil too! the way they see it, you put your plants there for them to dig them up :P
    I used to have squirrel problems when I was trying to grow peanuts. Every single time I had a little seedling, the squirrel came by and ate it! well, I ran out of peanuts but now I start my seedlings inside a bird cage and I haven't had any problems.
    and you COULD use repellant!

    How about a blow gun with poisonous darts? Then squirrel stew...

    The way I look at it, it is my property and they are tresspassing and we all know what happens to tresspassers... And squirrels = Satan. They are too smart for their own good.

    I read somewhere that squirrels dislike the smell of blood. Somebody should buy a big fat steak at the store, and pour the blood left in the styrofoam container near their plants. I'm curious to see if it'll work.
