They can do much harm. The can and do dig up the whole rhizome large or
small. Never had one eat or do direct damage to the rhizome its self. I
have had them dig up the same one 8 days in a row. I usually have more
problems in a newly planted bed.

Just refilled 5 or 6 holes an hour ago, it is almost a daily chore. They
dig right next to the base of the fan. Why I do not know.  We got rid of
bird feeders. The squirrels destroy them, seed and hummingbird feeders

I would move them.

Squirrel chasing would be better.
