Keep Squirrels Out Of Your Garden With This Handy Kitchen Item
Squirrels can be a menace in gardens, often damaging plants and vegetables. An effective remedy to deter them from your yard can be found right in your kitchen: aluminum foil.
Squirrels find the sensation of stepping on aluminum foil unnatural, akin to sharp, stabbing objects. They are also put off by its texture, reflective surface, and metallic smell.
Thus, you can strategically place aluminum foil around key areas that squirrels frequent. This includes covering the ground surrounding plants and wrapping it around tree trunks.
Another effective method is shredding the foil and mixing it into garden mulch before laying it on the topsoil. If your garden is fenced, wrapping foil tightly around it can help.
