While cleaning and trying to organize our son's garage better this summer on one of our visits; I saw he had about 3 or 4 suet cages laying around on a workbench. A light went off in my head; could they be used for bulb cages to keep the critters from digging and eating the Spring bulbs? It looked like the wire is about 1 inch square, although I didn't measure it. I'm thinking for the larger bulbs, why not? It could be planted the depth you normally would plant the bulbs..When at Walmart yesterday, I came upon another one and I mentioned it to my husband which wasn't interested in my idea at that time. Think about it and give me your opinion or if you happen to have a suet cage, measure the wire squares on it and post your thoughts here.
