Hello. How do you deter squirrels and chipmunks from digging the garden and potted plants? I've tried garlic, cayenne pepper, and even hairs but none of them worked.
Thank you. I've been trying the ground cinnamon sprinkled around the plants. So far it seems to be working but I don't know for how long or how it will affect the plants. If it fails, I will sure try your Tabasco flavoured peanuts next.Try soaking peanut shells in hot tabasco sauce for a few days then place the whole peanut in the potted plants. Similar to cayenne pepper but when critters try to ear it, it might discourage them from returning. If you can get raw peanut, then boil them in a hot sauce and red pepper.
Sorry for not replying soon, been busy. My concern about vinegar is that it might kill my plants since I used it to kill weeds. I've tried peppermint before and it didn't work. Someone told me that they (chipmunks) eat fruits and veggies because they're thirsty and that I should put a bowl of water for them. Never tried it since my neighbour have a pond and bird baths. I'm also surrounded by farms so I'm wondering why my garden?Have you tried using vinegar or peppermint oil?
