Introduction: Squirrels can be a good deal of fun to watch as they scamper, but if you can get rid of squirrels in the garden the damage they cause will be eliminated.

Step 1: You can get rid of squirrels in the garden by planting a border of marigolds around it - squirrels hate the smell and stay away.

Step 2: By sprinkling used cat litter about the garden squirrels think there is a cat near and will take off and stay away.

Step 3: The installation of motion detector sprinklers are a great way to get rid of squirrels in the garden, because they hate getting wet.

Step 4: You can get rid of squirrels in the garden by spreading ground cayenne pepper around the plant bases - one whiff and they will not be seen for a while.

Step 5: Imitation figures of animals that prey on squirrels like owls, hawks and cats will scare just about any squirrel off quickly, just remember to move the decoys around every so often.

Tips: Use a combination of measures to get rid of the squirrels in your garden - don't rely on just one.

Warnings: Never use any method to get rid of squirrels that will harm them, they do serve a useful purpose in nature.

Had not heard about the cat litter trick. Good one. Also, human and/or dog hair works, too. Great tips!
