is pine bark chip mulch less inviting to squirrel digging?

16 years ago

This year I finally realized that I could avoid squirrels digging up my potted plants if I covered the surface with enough gravel. I don't want to use it in my beds, though, where I have always used shredded cedar bark. I was wondering anyone has found that the chunky texture of pine bark chips is a digging deterrent. I am at war with raging maniac squirrels and basically have had to devote huge amounts of time and energy applying and reapplying homemade deterrent to the many newly planted and even not so newly planted areas of my garden.
