Do Squirrels Eat Pumpkins?

Squirrels will frequently enter your garden and destroy your pumpkins if you give them the chance. You will need to take precautions to protect your pumpkins if you don’t want them being gobbled up by squirrels.

While squirrels look cute, they can very quickly destroy your garden plants, vegetables, and fruits if you give them access to your garden.

Here  are some signs that squirrels are eating your pumpkins.

Holes with Seeds and Nuts Across or Around Your Garden:

Squirrels love digging holes to store nuts, seeds, and other plant parts. They forget the location of many holes that they dig.

Tree Barks Stripped Off:

Squirrels always look for fibrous materials to chew (because of their teeth). If you find trees with a scratch on their bark (or a region of the bark is stripped), you should check for squirrels.

Squirrel Footprints:

Squirrels are not difficult to recognize when they are around. From their footprints on wet floors to the sounds they make, you should be able to tell if squirrels are in your garden or not.
