I do have my schnauzer on patrol and she loves it. Great for all of us.
This year for the first time, I got some rodent pet cages off of Craig's list for free.
I figured, if they can keep a rodent in, they could also keep a rodent out.
Plums, apples, cherries, etc. can pile up quickly and the squirrels will find a way to eat or partially eat and damage a large portion of the harvest.
I think it's worth a try.
We'll See. I'll report on my findings.
