We used a product called Squirrel Away--ground red pepper, available at Walmart--mixed into bird seed. It worked there--my wife saw one eat some treated seed, stop, get bugeyed, then run down the post and start eating snow! You might try some in the pots, possibly with roasted peanuts, which won't sprout. If the wee beasties sample the treated peanuts, they might get the idea to stay away.

heh heh heh! :D:D Love your idea, Jack hee hee!

Thanks for the tip, hamwhatam - I'm gonna have to get some, too, or else make my own hot pepper spritz for the tomatoes coming on.

Not only that but if they like it she can use my idea and have the meat already flavored.
