If your Kansas City area yard is currently suffering from mice, squirrels, cats, rats, beavers or moles, your best protection may very well be to use woven wire or metal barriers to protect your trees and garden beds. You may be turned off at the idea of wires around your precious, beautiful lawn and garden, but you don’t have to be. Why? Because you can have the wire installed underneath the soil of your garden bed. If you hate for your garden to continually be used as some neighborhood cat’s litter box, installing the wire deters cats from your garden.
The wire will also deter squirrels who love to dig up bulbs, mice, rabbits and other rodents who like to nibble on your plants. You can also use traps to catch rodents in your lawn, however, in many cases you want to leave that to the professionals.
Have you been having any issues with rodents in your landscape lately?
