You’ve started a garden, and your plants are growing well, until one day you walk outside to find that several of your plants have been eaten. What might have done this? It’s then that a question flashes through your mind. Do squirrels eat plants?
The answer is yes.
Although squirrels, such as the grey squirrel, typically prefer seeds like acorns, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pine cone seeds, etc… When seeds and nuts are not readily available squirrels will eat your fruits, vegetables and flowering plants.
There are several methods you can use to prevent squirrels from eating your plants, all of which I discuss on this website.
