Re: RE:CULT:Squirrels #^*&#$

Keith I'm interested you have a hose problem. We hacve a similar one caused by hares.
We irrigate with T-Tape, a thin black hose which has little slits every 8" or so. Because we're on a slight slope these is always a bit of water left at the bottom a run of T-Tape. The hares can smell this and often bite through the hose to get the water. Next time we turn the irrigation on, these is a plume of water out the hose from the large  holes, that the hares put there. Suddenly we don't hate foxes so much.

The Squirrels may be smart but I don't have to like their
tearing up the top to my glider swing & ripping out the
stuffing to the cushions to line & build their nest, chewing up
the water hose when the horse buckets were froze & they couldn't
get to the water, or the one who for some reason had to vote it's
opinion of me by bombing me with squirrel pee.  Since I live far
from any city limits I see squirrel shot in the shot gun & fewer
busy tailed rats.  Cute just won't go that far.  The snakes keep
down rats which means less rat damage & fewer germs that they
