We've had some success with peppermint oil soaked on cotton balls & putting them in the plants....might want to give it a try!

They are digging for nuts.;) Annoying it is, but they are so cute. I remember how many would just run around the Duke campus all the time.;)To see a squirrel here is a rarity.:)

No, ours hang out under our squirrel proof feeder and scavange for leftover seeds tossed down by the birds.

I know alot of people have a problem when planting spring bulbs. The squirrels I guess dig them up. I am going to plant bulbs this fall...hope that doesn't happen to me!

No, thank goodness! Critters sure can mess up things can't they!

Donna, I'm going to be sending you a picture of my friend's dog Sydney that just had to be put down. I'd love to give our friends a Sydney painting from you. The same size as my others is fine. Same price?

Oddly enough, they don't dig in mine. Maybe it's because of the dogs.

Squirrels are just evil little animals as far as I'm concerned! The eat all my bird seed and they ruined the gazebo bird feeder my Dad made me! I hope you get rid of them and they stop digging in your plants!

That looks like a very familiar sight.

I have had great sucess in keeping the squirrels out of my pots by covering the dirt with pine cones-for some reason that stops them- and it really doesn't look too bad.
