I recently potted my 2 typical VFT's and moved them outside. There are about 4 trees in my backyard that host birds in the late afternnon. I have also seldom noticed a ground squirrel in my yard.
I am afraid that these animals and others might attack my VFT's.
I have read someone's post that mentioned that a bird destroyed their plant because it was attracted to the dead insects.
So my questions are:
-What are some common items or methods that I can use to scare off or drive out these "pests" from my VFT's?
-Have you had any problems with pests messing around with your VFT's?? If so, how did you fix the problem?
I am currently using 2 CD's tied on string and hung from a branch above my 2 VFT's. I have read that this (the reflection of the CD's) might scare away birds.
P.S.- I know that winter is on its way and that this issue will die down for some time, but I want to prepare for the long run.
Thanks a buch!
