Please help! What's eating my tomatoes, and how to stop it!

7 years ago

Hi. I live in Atlanta. Earlier in the season, something was eating my tomatoes, taking about half of the green ones and leaving the rest on the ground to taunt me. We have lots of squirrels and occasionally see raccoons. I built a 'tomato coop' that is 8' x 4' x 5'H with a door and two padlocks.

When I watered today, a beautiful red tomato, nearly ready to pick, was still on the vine, half eaten! What is small enough to get through chicken wire? Chipmunks? Voles, mice, moles, birds? Please see my pics of the coop and tomato. Thank you to anyone with advice!!
