Bulbs in the Amaryllis Family also contain physiologically active (i.e.,
toxic) alkaloids that serve as deterrents to animal predation.  So I  
why Doug's daffodils in the mountains keep disappearing?  The only  
that occurs to me is bulb flies, which are not deterred by alkaloids."

Jim Shields,

I think that it could be squirrels.
