I have a new assistant

Post by Gene Howard on Wed Apr 08, 2015 1:06 pm

I've been out potting up seedlings and pulling weeds. I've discovered a great number of containers have Red Oak seedlings that I didn't plant. Also the vacant lot next door has seedlings that are spaced about 10 ft. apart That part isn't too annoying I can use the seedlings, but the squirrels also dug up hundreds of acorns that I planted and cut down some newly potted seedlings. 

Last year I had red oaks and red maple small trees that were girdled and some were cut down by squirrels and rabbits. Rat poison hasn't seemed to deter them. ( and they eat it.) Does anyone have experience in controlling these critters? I'm contemplating getting a live trap, but I wonder if they are too smart for that to work long term.

I understand if you have them baptised they will never come back.

I think some of your assistants may have found my tall oak trees too. Not only do they plant trees where I don't want them but they try to help me dig plants. Trouble is they dig the ones I just potted.

My problem exactly. I like Bro. O'Donnell's answer. I just haven't been able to catch them to baptize them. I did get a Havahart trap today.
