Squirrels in the Garden

Asked December 11, 2015, 2:10 AM EST

I have a large walnut tree near my garden. The squirrels love to bury their walnuts in the garden and then dig them up. Is there anything I can do to deter this behavior?

For squirrels the best approach is a fence chicken wire works well, the fence only need be taller than the squirrels can reach from their back feet. Poisoning is an other approach but isn't as effective as the fence short term.
