Terri and her pumpkins vs. the neighborhood squirrels, Part 2
This one is on tactics (a companion to my earlier page 5 Dollar Squirrel Chow). When the squirrels first went after my Halloween porch decor, I went online and found all kinds of seemingly useful (and some somewhat crazy) ideas for how to outsmart the little critters. Here are just some of the ideas I collected, but didn't necessarily try out. (For example, it was a complete no-go on the fox urine - didn't think that would go over too well with the mailman, the neighborhood kids, my husband. . . well, you get the idea!)
