Squirrels eating flowers


My mom has planted impatiens in her front yard for years and has never had them destroyed like the squirrels have done this year. Is there any way to discourage squirrels from her plantings? - Meridith -

    Did you place a sign in the garden reminding the squirrels not to destroy the plants? Just a little humor. You might want to try some of the odor/taste repellants to stop the damage. Hopefully if you can get them to move on they will not return. Dennis - Johnson County Extension
