Hacks for Keeping Squirrels Out of Your Garden:

Thanks to all the readers who made these suggestions! Let me know if any of these work for you and definitely do your own research before trying any of these things. 

  1. Dish soap along the edges.
  2. Cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. Sprinkle on the soil around the plants! (This has worked for me this week.)
  3. Motion activated water sprinkler: This helps with both deer and rodents!
  4. Fake owl statue
  5. Fake snakes. 
  6. Plug-in high frequency deterrents in your backyard (if you have somewhere to plug in.) *Lee’s note: check safety of having these in your yard especially if you have children.*
  7. Chicken wire around the planters
  8. Window screen mesh – create a little screened-in area with 2×4 and a staple gun. 
  9. If all else fails, get a garden cover
