CrySquirrels and pigeons have become a pain. They dont let any of the buds  bloom nor do they let the vegetable plants grow.. They are eating away the seedlings itself and they dont even spare the rose buds. How do i get rid of them ? I have even put a wired mesh on my terrace. To an extent pigeons can be handled but squirrels are a big pain as they squeeze thro the smallest hole they find..

please help

I had a similar problem

1 Sprinkle chilli flakes/powder near the entry point.

2. Camphor balls keep them away.

3. Put up a windchime...the louder the better. I got two...keep alternating them every week. So they don't get used to the sound.

4. Place the pots in big plastic covers. They can't climb in.

5. Hang old CD's around the terrace where light can reflect off  them.

I did all this...don't know which worked. But the squirrels don't come on my terrace anymore.
