Cantalopes & squirels
Do squirels forage cantalope patchs? Have a small patch in the Ohio river
valley that's shown only one small 1 in. cantalope so far. The squirels seem
to be having a good year, though.
Each spring when I put in a garden, the local squirrels take note.
As soon as
I see one in my garden, it becomes shot. Then I build a little
gallows in the
middle of the garden and hand the carcass from it.....
It seems to work... Stinks for about a week, but no further
squrrels come into
My garden is fenced, and I have a dog..... Squirrels just laugh
are too fast and too quick for most dogs and cats, especially when
taken by surprised. They are not too fast for a good pellet rifle,

You probably wouldn't even have to shoot one to have this affect.
Simply find a squirrel that was hit by a car and rub it around the
preimeter of your garden. Squirrels are rodents. I know that rats will
avoid a trap if they smell that a rat has been killed by it.
