I went ahead and removed these two. I consumed what was left, which was very sweet and tasty! It's a shame that the squirrel got em. What was not touched has been covered with cayenne pepper and sprayed down with a little bit of water. Anyone have any suggestions? I wanna try everything non-lethal before I decide to go lethal on this guy... ha!
Ohhhhhhhhh ,how I feel your pain and anger! I deal with these little critters myself and Nothing I do seems to outsmart them!! ( does make ya loose some religion at times ) * I'm open for suggestions right along with ya here!! ( chippie's are a pest too )
im thinking of a thin very strong pole that sticks up in the air several feet with a wide top, something that would be difficult for him to climb up and if he got up it, he wouldn't be able to get around the base of the tray... hmm.
I'm thinking maybe a .22? 410? lol... pellet projectile?
I don't know how a pole would keep him out of your strawberries, but my mother put a slinky over a shepherd's crook to discourage them from getting into a bird feeder. They eventually figured out how to get past the slinky, but it was pretty hilarious watching until they did.
Are you sure it's squirrels?
Birds love strawberries and the damage to your fruit look just like bird damage!
A floating net cover works to keep the beggers out! You can get the netcover at Lowes or Home Depot!
