The squirrels are eating my bulbs - they have a penchant for tulip bulbs - and are becoming a real pest. This didn't start until someone next door started feeding the birds quite heavily.
Is there any way of dealing with them before they breed into an uncontrollable mob?
Moonstar, there have been squirrels in my area ever since I moved here 13 yrs ago. Some years, there seemed to be quite a number, and other years there were very few. There is one in my garden this winter, when there have been 3 or 4. Never knew what happened to them, but the little blighters had a feast on the tulip bulbs, lily bulbs and begonia bulbs. Every year I'd plant something different and they found them all! Gave up in the end. Sorry to be the bearer a bad tidings.. You could maybe scatter a regular supply of nuts for them as an alternative.It might work
