Mike Have you tried red hot pepper powder found in the
spice departments? I had trouble with squirrels digging my pumilas at one time
and now at planting time and in the fall I sprinkle the red hot pepper powder on
the soil and around them and the squirrels seem to remember where the
scattering is after that. The pepper does not hurt the iris. Of course if I
weed with my bare fingers [which I usually do not] then I have to wash my hands
or they will be hot for my eyes should I rub them before washing them. Hope this
will work for your squirrels. The clematis vine you sent me a piece of some time
ago is doing fine. Thank you again.

Just found this they destroyed
about 5 increases. Can not cover everything with chicken wire.
