    Default Squirrels digging up my lawn!

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to a substance I can apply to my grass to stop squirrels from digging my lawn up? Thanks

    I bet you see ground squirrels digging up your lawn (short tail, smaller body). If that's the case, you're in for a long frustrating fight.

    These highly intelligent little rodents multiply fast, eat a lot and very hard to get rid off. All "candies" sold in stores don't really work (EPA, thank you). Trapping is a joke for them. Smoking them, drowning them, ultrasound, etc. don't work well either.

    I would try bait designed for much larger animals and hope they take it.

    Well, it's like I always say, if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!

    I know this is an old post but it is germane this time of year. The squirrels are collecting nuts (no, they're not looking for you) so they have nourishment over the winter. There is very little you can do to prevent this since whatever you use might be fatal for another life form that is good. The bright and redeeming thing about this event is that the squirrels are aerating your lawn. You might find a few miniscule trees in spring but for the most part this should be not a problem. It is a greater concern when they are hogging the bird feeders and that's when an air rifle is just revenge for these critters (aka tree rats).
