Suggestions needed for cute little furry pests
Each year, my foursquare box starts out lovely. Then the chipmunks come. They tell their friends, and tell more friends, and soon, I have very few healthy plants.
I want to find a solution that is organic and friendly for edible plants.
The last two years I have tried the following, based on tips from other sites:
* Cat fur (I demat my kitty and put the fur around the box) - No help at all
* Cat litter clumps (I set them underneath the foursquare box) - no help at all
* Garlic juice (from the garlic jars) - this seemed to work but had to be constantly reapplied after a couple of rains/waterings
* Deer Netting - the little critters figured out how to go under the edges and get into the box, plus it makes it sooo hard to manage the plants - since I also have trouble dealing with the netting.
Any other ideas that have worked for you?
