You think I'd learn they ate clear through it this time

Anyone know where I can get a hose they won't eat? I have three huge oak trees and one decent sized chestnut in my yard plus a pond that they drink from.Ungrateful little buggers.

Our number one squirrel chaser is not doing a good enough job.

    I feel your pain Every year I try to plant stuff and the little f******s munch and dig it up. I've been putting cayenne pepper around. Douse that hose with tabasco.
    I have a recipe for squirrel stew.

    Buzzie the Jack Russel keeps the squirrels, turkeys, Chipmunks and in this case snakes away.

    I'm with you Mike...don't see many fox squirels around here for some reason. But when I do I enjoy. Only critters I eliminate are armadillos...they tear up the yard and dig holes big enuf to tear up an ankle. :evil:

    Our Westie Ellie lives to chase squirrels but she doesn't stay outside all day.

    A while back I had a problem with them raiding the bird feeder, suet cakes, and all. With some crafty innovation I employed the use of an electric fence unit to solve the problem. One by one they came, and one by one they opted not to return. Made for some great entertainment! 8 - )

    Get some rat traps, and use some peanut butter. I got six in two days after they chewed a hole in my roof to store nuts.
