Hi everyone, do you have any ideas how to stop squirrels attacking the fruit from my fig tree? I’m just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem, any advice would be most welcome. Many Thanks John



Some would say 'shotgun' but your figs would be full of holes! What else will squirrels find to annoy us with? After thieving birdfood. Planting hazlenuts all over my garden. Digging up bulbs. Put chilli powder on figs you can reach perhaps. Put fleece over the fig tree till they are ready to eat or leave them for the squirrels.
