Every morning, when Bill goes out to get the paper, he is greeted by the mess these critters are making.
Not a good looking "First Impression!"
They just dig the begonias out and set them to the side???
After our walk or bike, we replant the Begonias and sweep the mulch back in place.
We have try several deterrents so far.
First, we applied hot pepper flakes to the beds...it had no effect.
Next, we upped the anty to Cayenne Pepper...again they were not affected.
Time to try chemical warfare, "Critter Ritter"... they laughed at us!
So we decided to eradicate the food supply..."GrubEX"... that was a waste of time and money!!
Still not sure what this critter looks like, but we think it may resemble a mole, so our next step is Mole and Gopher deterrent spray...
If that doesn't work, I am calling in the Marines!!
Yes, Bill will be on sentry duty from sun down until sun up or
until we have destroyed all the
"Mulch Throwing Begonia Snatchers!!!!"
