Neighborhood hoolygans...STINKIN' SQUIRRELS! They've tore up my gnome garden again! They've tossed the gnomes out into the yard,kicked over the table,tossed and bent the garden fencing up and even ripped the roof off the little house I made from a terra cotta pot and roofinf shingles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm constantly making repairs on my gnome garden.ARGH!!!
they're like school yard bullies picking on the geeky kids. My poor lil gnomes are only about 6 inches tall so they chunk them every where. They must be on steroids too...look how bent up that one piece of fencing is...and the roofing shingle is torn in half.
Nice spot for Mr. Thoughtnot. He ought to be real happy there.
Peggy, the good thing is they don't know who they're dealing with. I'm glad your husband "thins them out" - I keep saying I'm gonna get a BB gun just for the fun of it. (I think I'm what might be called a "Redneck Yankee"!)
No I think most birds do not have a since of smell, just do not put it right where the birds will stand. I put it on the pole and around the feeder lower down.m I will let you know tomorrow if it does work. Been gone today.
bigred, I've seen birdhouse folks say to use vaseline inside the birdhouse to keep out wasps so, it must not be a problem for the birds although I would think it better to place either inside on the back of the house or maybe on the base. Also, they say to use a bit of sulphur inside to keep away the mites. As to those "hooligans" whatever you can think of to keep them away...rascals!
