Step 1: The Solution

I have worked out as many as 3 solutions so either of them should surely work.

1. Using odor
2. Using natural predators
3. Using ultrasonic waves
Cool. But u should check out my solution. :D
I love sunflowers! Next spring I will plant more and try your solution - wreath

Hey I'm the guy who you voted for! Just returning the favor ;)
Squirrels not like chilli powder, so you could spinkle this on the seed heads, unfortunatly birds are not bothered by chilli so you would need another idea for them. Good work well researched. Planting garlic or onions next to your carrot crop will help deter carrot fly as it disguises the carrot smell
Yes but you whould just have to come around every once and a while take them out and smash them is whould save monney too
it whould be a good idea to plant a gralic plant right beside the plant you wont to save or keep you should add that just saying good idea this is really good
it wouldn't be helpful becoz- <br>1. the garlic or the onion grows underground <br>2. even if it grew above, you know the fumes and the fragrence or whatever you say wouldn't be released into the air.(It is the reason you need to smash them)
sounds great.... keep working on it
Ah! an easy method.
Thank you for posting I must try this out in summer.
cat vs bird hmmmm that whould be fun to watch good job on this btw
Nice! <br>
which competition is this in?
citizen science contest.
We have a dog (as seen in my profile picture) and he barks a lot. We got him a birdhouse that constantly makes ultrasonic sound. We got it at pet-co for like $70 or something, it works great!
That's quiet helpful! Great instructable.
so how often do you have to change the onions? <br>
Depends on the amount you take.

Nice instructable sounds like it should work.
I wonder if this'll work on underground critters as well. Those are the real problem around here. Will have to try it out!
Good idea--I'll have to see how it works on squirrels! You've got my vote.
hi thanks for your vote already vote for you in this contest also
Great Idea! I love the photo of the kitten!
As I do live in city and never saw any critter, I googled for images of CRITTERS and result was surprising, can you upload original critter's picture
critters means squirrels and birds or any other animal that harms the plants not those horrible looking gorrilas!!!!!!
very simple and effective. <br>voted!
Interesting. How long can the onions and garlic last?
it depends on the amount of garlic and onion you take.
It's a common indian jugaad ! <br>
