Aad your comment cracked me up, recon ive been laughing for 10 min : )  To
those who are still reading, I love a biological approach to these sort of
things & I live in the wilderness so outsmarting the little critters here
in the Australian bush is challenging to say the least... from old man bush
turkey who loves to build his 2m high & 4m wide nest with every last
scratching, out smarted him from digging out hundreds bulbs by accident,
by re-digging the spoon drain edges & cover up any mulch, disgusted by this
he takes his ruffled black feathers & bright red & yellow noggin else where
: )  I met some squirrels when I was I USA & they seemed the sort of cute
little cheeky animals that would eat anything, but I have used the
following method to stop other animals running a buck & continually digging
out my bulbs to eat worms & stuff... I look things they don't like eating &
pulp some up with a little peppermint & or clove essential oil & some
chilli, garlic or ginger.... can be dried & sprinkled where the animals are
being a pest & ive found it very discouraging, can be juiced & mixed into a
spray but doesn't last very long, my dose is random depending on how
frustrated I am with their shenanigans & its not 100% fool proof but it
helps reduce the problem with heaps of species for me.. Ants don't like it
