Might try spraying them with what I used to use on things I didn't want my dog or cat to chew on. I think it is called Bitter Apple and they make other products similar with different names. They sell at pet stores or Walmart. It is made to make the object taste bad. Doesn't hurt the animals. You can reapply it every night to make sure it tastes very bad. You should be able to reuse the pumpkins it does wash off with water. Good luck with your squirrely endeavors. lol

I have this problem every year and wondered if anyone else did too. I love to put 1 or 2 pumpkins on my front step for decorating at Fall season, but within days, the squirrels have chewed large holes in them and seeds are everywhere.
