How to Keep Squirrels Out of Potted Plants: 7 Ways

Use Physical Barriers: Place wire mesh or chicken wire over the soil to prevent squirrels from digging. 

Apply Natural Repellents: Use substances like cayenne pepper or garlic powder to deter squirrels with their strong scent. 

Install Predator Decoys: Place fake owls or snakes near the pots to mimic natural predators and scare off squirrels. 

Utilize Commercial Repellents: Purchase squirrel repellent sprays or granules designed to deter them from your plants. 

Try Noise or Motion Devices: Use devices that emit sounds or motions when triggered, startling squirrels away from your plants. 

Opt for Squirrel-Resistant Plants: Choose plants that are less appealing to squirrels, such as lavender or marigolds. 

Create Distractions: Provide alternative food sources like bird feeders to divert squirrels' attention away from your potted plants.
