Re: [pfaf] squirrels...and mice!
- Since we`re using a quite massive straw-mulch in the vegetables since last autumn, it seems to me the mice-population is rising and especially now, when autumn is coming they seem to eat more vegetables as wild herbs aren`t that tender any more.
One thing I don´t know the english word for we used all the time: It`s treetrunks, upright in the ground, that raptors can use to sit on and watch for mice. But the mice are invisible below the straw...
Now I´m thinking of installing normal mousetraps to get the population down.
What is an easier and more succesful way?

Does anybody know of a humane way of stopping squirrels from damaging trees?
Particularly if you are planting new trees to create new woodland. I am
working with landowners who do not want to poison or shoot but are getting
quite substantial squirrel damage & have been told if they are serious about
getting trees established they have to control them somehow.
I will also be planting new woodland & therefore need to know.
