They may be cute but squirrels can get into a lot of trouble in the garden. I have given up trying to grow strawberries and cucumbers as the squirrels don't wait for them to ripen before nibbling a bit and I never got to have any. Tomatoes work because there are so many to go around that there are always some left for me. Our black squirrels are actually Eastern Grey Squirrels with black fur.
