If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you know I deal with various furry woodland creatures around my house.
Every spring, I have the battle of the chipmunks. Skunks and raccoons frequent the garden in the summer.
Now, I have a bigger problem since the temperatures are starting to warm up and furry creatures wake up from their long winter naps.
My usual tactic is to grease my shepherd’s hook with lard or Crisco. It makes the pole slippery enough to deter chipmunks, but the squirrels aren’t bothered by it.
Ugh. They’d be easier to hate if they weren’t so cute.
Back to the drawing board. I think I just need to give up and buy a baffle.
