My plum tree(usually full of fruit) has been murdered by squirrels and whitefly/aphids. The lawn beneath is black from the droppings! there are a few plums left but I would sacrifice them if necessary .Any advice on what I can do now?

A gun for the squirrels (nothing else will stop them) and a pesticide spray for the insects is all I can say, really. Perhaps a net next year to keep the squirrels off - although, in my experience, they'll chew through tensile steel to get something they want...
