There is hope for us Gardener's after all, after years and years of suffering their abuse I have found the solution to at least our Squirrel problem
We love to garden and we also happen to live in the remnants of what was once a huge Carolina Forest.
So we have lots of oaks and hickory trees and thus a gazillion Squirrel's and then some.
They are very damaging rodents and they fear no human, they chew wiring,chew into attics, attack freshly planted gardens, In general they are a Rat
with a furry tail.
I found out years ago that in the city it is now not a good idea to pull out the "Red Rider" and place a BB up their ass, took about 10 minutes for
the police to show up.
So then we went with "Have a heart" trapping and releasing but found we could not keep up with their reproduction rates which I might add are similar
to Rabbits......No offense intended to any Wabbits or Rabbits posting here on ATS.
About three weeks ago I ordered a Remote Controlled Quad Copter for a potential new hobby and to keep my sanity.
I got the Phantom and just last night I was practicing in the back yard and was just getting good and flying it without taking out any of our
vegetation, and there he was a big fat black one heading down our fence to our pond or veggie garden.
Lol I buzzed that sucker and did he ever spaz out he leaped off of the fence to the neighbours yard and that side is at least a 10 foot drop to
pavement......Snicker this was twelve hours ago and I have not seen his scruffy arse here since.......
To all gardener's here on ATS that have a Squirrel infestation or worse this could be your answer.
To the Mods I believe I posted in the correct Forum but do what you see fit.......
I am heading out back now to do some more flight/fright time on my new Quad Copter in our new Squirrel free yard.
