As an enthusiastic gardener, you put a lot of work into growing plants for your own pleasure and use. The problem is that a yard bursting with healthy plants, flowers, and food crops is downright irresistible to many animal pests. Mammals such as rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, and skunks are common backyard visitors even in urban areas. You may even see foxes, bobcats, deer, and coyotes if you live closer to the outskirts. As much as you appreciate wildlife, you probably don't want animals ravaging your garden and eating up this year's harvest.
