squirrels and rats are enjoying eating my leaves big time. I have my patch surrounded with 4 feet chicken wire fence. I`ve tried several things. I would like to hear some new ideas. I`m desperate and ready to quit for this year. I`ve grown pumpkins for 20 years and never had this kind of trouble. I live in San Diego, California

Thanks _ Jon

Are they hungry or just looking for water? Maybe a bird bath on the ground if they are only a problem because they thirsty.

one year I had animals eating my drip tape to get water, you could try spraying your plants with pepper or garlic
