squirrels are eating bulbs
Please help us find bulbs we can plant in Zone 5 that the squirrels do NOT like to eat. Seems that they find day lillies to be especially tasty treats and the do seem to at least leave the glads until the lillies are gone.
Or maybe the question we sould be asking is "is there anything we can use to discourage the squirrels from eating the bulbs?" A friend suggested sprinkling with hot pepper sauce diluted with water or shaking some cayenne pepper over the planted area.
We'd rather not go through another season of loosing 90-100 bulbs to our bushy-tailed neighbors.
