I've grown tomatoes in my garden for nearly 20 years, some good, some not. About 6 or 7 years ago the squirrels discovered this easy source of water and nutrition. I lost a few here and there, but I'm not selfish. I tolerated it for a time. Then I tried to stop them. A little cayenne ought to do it, right? Sure, until it rains. As time passed I have tried everything you good folks can suggest; moth balls, commercial repellants, BB gun, pellet gun, shotgun, live traps, kill traps, golden retreiver, fox pee, even my pee. Nothing works. The lust for my 'maters is literally in these squirrel's DNA. My last resort is this, the electric fence. There is a model available specifically for the wiley Tree Rat on the web, but it looks like it will set me back about $350 to protect my entire garden. Does anyone have any advice regarding electric fences to control these beasts? They have caused me well over the $350 in damage over the years, but I don't want to lay out the cash to only find that this, like every other method, is not a solution. HELP!
