Apparently the squirrels like my potted maples. So far no actual damage (yet), but 2-3 times today - and today is the first time I've noticed it - I've noticed that the soil in various pots has been disturbed, like they've been digging in them, either looking for food or burying stuff. The trees are up on tables (about 18-24" off the ground), close to the house and under a large pin oak. We back onto a creek with a bunch of trees, so this is not a problem that's going to go away. Has anyone had problems with squirrels? What have you done/used that has been effective in keeping them away from the trees and/or out of the pots (short of completely surrounding the trees with cages/chicken wire)?
