    They most obnoxius pests!

    Squirlls!
    They keep digging in my minibog! I come home and my VFT has been torn up.

    If anyone else has this problem, I'd like to see how you solved it. Right now I've just been yelling and chasing squirls whever I see one, with hope it will teach them whos boss.

    Mabye I could install a sensor that would make noise whenever something comes near? They have those for like $4.

    Thats what I'm going to do do. If anyone else has a better idea, please let me know!

    Thanks,
    -Deme

    those sensors tend to be crap. Remember the star wars laser fighter thing with the eyetoy? Maybe put a stick fence around it or something, or one of those little mini garden fences?
    Oh, and the most obnoxious pests by far are the uneducated parents. They "give your minibog some extra soil" and bury your D. filiformis in peat, feed your flytraps cicadas, and move humidity loving neps to the windowsill in a room with a de-humidifier for "some natural sunlight."

    You could put chicken wire fence over the bog and around it.

    i've sprinkled pepper and chili powder around my porch. so far it seems to keep the raccoons away. i imagine it would also work with squirrels.

    I think I might combine all these ideas. Thanks.

    The humanitarian/enviromentalists next door are gonna kill me though, once they find out what I do to squirlls.

    J/k, I'm an enviromentalist myelf, with NO respect for anything that hurts my plants!

    the best idea is to get a pellet/bb gun and just shoot them when you see them

    thats the fun approach to your problem
