Re: Sneaking in squirrel bait
We use Plantskydd Animal Repellent. In our active browsing community that we garden in here in Michigan- the rabbits and deer fight over them.
When first planting, I spray the tulip and lily bulbs with Plantskydd RTU, then plant in the ground.To keep squirrels from following me around and curiously digging behind me or in my pansy containers, I sprinkle the granular on top of the bed after planting or directly into the container. When they 1st emerge in the spring, I either spray the emerging tips or put granular down if it’s raining. The rabbits will clear cut them if i don’t. When the leaves unfurl, I hit them again lightly on the undersides. When the buds appear, I do it again or the deer or squirrels will eat them or bite them off, drink the water from the stem and neatly place the forlorn bud on the ground. I keep most of my tulips in the front yard vs. all over the yard to keep an eye on them. It takes me longer to describe this here than to actually do it. Tulips are very expensive-but they are long lasting and worth growing.
