Squirrel (from Wikimedia)

There are squirrels eating fruit – lately they’ve been taking bites out of all the unripe persimmons… grrr. I tried to scare it off by moving toward the tree menacingly… but it just sat there. So I took a small rock (not big enough to harm it) and chucked it at the squirrel and it finally ran off.

Anyone heard any ideas on how to curb squirrels?

I’ve seen folks put huge nets over their trees… which seems a little intrusive. Anything simple, easy, humane, non-toxic?
