Thanks for the tips willshoum,I really appreciate the tip and will be looking for some type of crab meat or tuna??
Yesterday we put a temporary chain link fence with t-posts around the sweetcorn patch they keep visiting,we added more steel traps around the outside perimeter and they still climbed in last night?
I guess we're going to try an electric fence around the chain link fence to save the last bit of this patch?
This is our first sweetcorn patch planted this spring,what happened after we planted we had heavy rains and flooding and lost 50-60% of the patch. So 2 weeks later I was able to get in and replant what had flooded,the early planting we didn't have so much problems with the coons. Now with the remaining 50-60% just about ready for harvest we can't keep those sons of guns out!!??
I have to figure how to keep these Bandits out of our last sweetcorn patch of the season which will be ready in mid Sept.? 12 rows 30 feet long of Ambrosia sweetcorn some of the best eating.
