Squirrels aren't picky. They'll show up in your garden and have a feeding frenzy on your seedlings,
berries, fruit, vegetables - even roots and bark.
Sometimes they'll attack your larger flowers and will dig up bulbs and newly planted seeds.
You`re more likely to encounter squirrels if you leave near fields or wild land.
In the spring and summer, you'll see most squirrels active in mid-morning or late afternoon.
The best way to control squirrels is my trapping them. Use a box-type trap baited with a slice of
orange or walnut). Or you may opt for anticoagulant types of poison bait, which should be placed in
at least one bait station and available to the squirrel for at least a week. But first check
with your county agent or farm advisor. Some jurisdictions prohibit the capture of some
kinds of ground squirrels.
You can also try using birdfeeders specially designed to ward off squirrels.
