I can help you with that. What I do is,I get the Hottest Hot sauce ( I use Dave's insanity sauce)and strain all the heavy stuff out. Then thin it with water and put it in a plastic spray bottle. Spray a coat of this hot sauce on the tomatoes. Keep it off the leaves it will burn them.
Squirrels will stay away from the tomatoes.
Thanks, I’ll give that a try. I read about using pepper spray in the garden to repel them by smell, but had no luck with that. Hadn’t thought about putting it on the fruit.
Actually, the tomatoes I don’t have a problem with are in pots covered with habaneros, which I planted after I caught squirrels crawling around in there.
