Garden Pests



What the squirrels leave behind.....



The lubbers are sure to eat......

I found all of our corn shucked on the stalk the other day. I could not figure out what may have eaten all the corn off the stalks. Twitter said that is was Raccoons or Opossums. I believed them until I caught the furry tailed rascals green handed this morning.

As far as the Lubbers.....I hat them. Nasty bugs.


Good Day!

Ewww, what a nasty bug!! The squirrel is cute, but I'm sorry he's wrecking your garden.

That is one ugly bug. Gives me the creeps just looking at it.

I often thought squirrels were just rats with bushy tails. They alternate between being really cute, and really a pain in the butt. Sorry yours are munching their way through your garden.

Squirrels just LOVE corn (and sunflower seeds). Sorry about your garden.

Green Fairy is right - Rats With Bushy Tails.

They get into our hibiscus & tangerines here. We don't mind no flowers on the hibiscus if we eat them (they are quite sweet) - but hate to see the rats with bushy tails get them.

And they'll take one stinking bite from a tangerine & drop it - then go on to the next one. I could live with some losses to them if they'd eat the whole thing but they are just so wasteful.

I think we need more cats in the neighborhood because I think they outlawed poisoned peanuts.

Good luck getting some of your homegrown produce for yourself.
