Garden Critters
Posted by Nancy from CA on 2001-03-24 19:28:33

How do I prevent birds, squirrels,
rabbits, and snails from invading my
garden again. I lost 3/4 of my plants
to these critters. Should I build some
sort of wire fencing around the
perimeter of the garden? I would
appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

    Nancy,
    How big is your garden, and what is your major plague? A fence won't keep out birds or squirrels, unless it has a top. Even with a top, snails will get through.
    A combination of fences and floating row covers might give you some relief.
