Keeping Squirrels Out Of Fruit Trees

I have tried owls, snakes, moth balls and spray. None worked for more than a day. Tried the plastic cone around the trunk and they jumped to the top edge and crawled up anyway.


This year I put "tangle foot", a product that is very sticky and used to keep pigeons off areas. Worked great. As soon as they jumped to the cone edge and got the adhesive on the front feet, they dropped off the cone and did not come back. They were not hurt in any way, but did not like the adhesive.

thanks for your post. I tried it and it's working! Not a single squirrel since I applied it. whooohooo. I'm spreading the word... for less than $15 and lots left over for next year too.
