Chicken Wire to Discourage Digging Animals

If you have pets or animals that roam your area try adding chicken wire under your plants. This way if something tries to dig in your garden or flower beds, it will stop them in their tracks. Most animals who dig do not like the feeling they get when they scratch their paws along the wire. It also serves a dual purpose - it acts as a grid for planning your plantings!

Has anyone had success with using blood meal? I'm wondering about that one.
I tried cayenne but it didn't work - and I could try it again in larger quantity or mixed with oil as someone suggested but won't it affect the plants?
A friend of mine swears by plastic forks stuck in the pots pointy tines up. But it looks so gross!
