How to Keep Squirrels Out of My Peach Tree

Save

Peach trees not only provide nutrients and vitamins found in these fleshy fruits, but they can also be an attractive addition to your landscaping. The fruit of the peach tree can also captivate invaders, including squirrels. Squirrels can damage peach trees and rob them of their fruit. You can keep your harvest intact this year by eliminating the squirrels from your trees before they have a chance to attack them.

Things You'll Need

  • Dog
  • Metal sheet
  • Nylon stockings
  • Cut off any branches on the tree that are less than six feet from the ground and near the roof of the house. The squirrels will not be as attracted to the tree if there is no fruit available near the ground.

  • Purchase a dog to chase away the squirrels. Breeds such as terriers are trained to chase away vermin.

  • Attach a piece of thin metal sheeting to the tree. This will make the surface of the tree too slippery for the squirrels to climb.

  • Remove any pet food or trash from your lawn; that might be attracting squirrels.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure that if you are purchasing a dog, it is the right choice for you and the rest of your family. Research the breed of dog you are interested in.
