One of the most serious pests that I have to deal with in the garden is squirrels. They either completely destroy the fruit, or they will eat just enough to spoil it and then move on to the next plant to do the same. A good pellet rifle will help, netting helps, and the squirrels usually find their way to the rat bait in the barn, but trapping also looks like a good way to go. I haven’t tried it yet,  but that will be on my “to do” list. Take a look at this post on the Kansas State University Northern Pecans blog.

The Conibear 110 trap can be ordered from F&T Fur Harvester’s Trading Post.
