Some top \"targets\" for squirrels: tomatoes, bulbs, sunflowers, beans, cucumbers, eggplants, squash, figs and really anything we might ourselves eat. You can Google anti-squirrel tips or ask the oldest person at the nearest garden center how they keep the squirrels out of the garden. 1If you have nut- or fruit-producing trees in your yard, chances are you will have squirrels in your yard. 2Killing squirrels that ransack your garden — while providing deep satisfaction to some uber-serious gardeners who have \"tipped over the edge\" — doesn't keep squirrels out. It is a war of attrition, and squirrel killers generally run out of ammo before squirrels run out of squirrels.
