The Squirrels and a Dalmation got me this season!
I watched this morning as the squirrels went in-and-out of my containers. I knew something was wrong with my germination more than the cold weather. . .? I found deep impressions in my containers. The neighbor's Dalmatian 'Belle' followed-up a visit and went into the jugs smelling for the squirrels. I Love animals, but I buy a lot of my seeds from Hazzard's and Swallowtail, they are not cheap. This is my 4th season WSing, and I can't figure out why the squirrels are so attracted to my jugs?
Other than pepper what can I put down to deter the squirrels and the dog?
