Squirrels – Eating leaves in tree

Q: I planted a maple tree last fall and have been waiting for it to leaf out. The leaves started disappearing and to my surprise, I spotted a squirrel in the tree, climbing the branches and munching on the leaves! What can I do?

A: Young squirrels try just about anything before settling on seeds, nuts (and my tomatoes!) for their food sources.

Try spraying the foliage with Ropel animal repellent.
