Quoting "Harrick, Barbara" :
> After years of cussing at and shooting at the squirrels in Northern 
> VA suburbs
> (zone 6b), we finally built cages to put over the 4 dwarf peach 
> trees. We used
> 1 x 1s and built frames and then staple gunned hard plastic mesh top 
> to bottom. 
> They are light (I can lift them myself). The squirrels tried to bite holes in
> them and got a few 2 x 2 inch holes going but abandoned the project. 
> This is the
> first year I was actually able to eat my own peaches!
