Lovingly tended my strawberries and raspberries again this year only for them to be eaten by squirrels.
I grow these in a large netted friut cage and just for good measure covered the strawberries with another net as they were ripening....but no, the squirrels ate through the netting, both lots and now they have started on the apples that I also grow in there. I find it so disheartening to spend time on the veg patch and not reap the rewards. Apart from making a scarecrow to keep in the fruit cage, will this frighten them?, does anyone have any tried and tested methods of how to deter them.
