Squirrels are adorable creatures that are often welcome visitors in most British gardens. However, large groups of squirrels can often cause havoc, with some Britons suggesting they have chewed through their garden furniture and invaded their loft space. Fans of cleaning and tidying sensation Mrs Hinch have offered their advice on how to deter squirrels.
Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, rose to fame after she shared her incredible cleaning and tidying tips.
Some of her tips include cleaning garden furniture and tidying up the garden.
On a Mrs Hinch gardening tips social media group with almost 100,000 members, a user asked how they can deter squirrel from their garden.
They asked: “How can I get rid of squirrels from my garden? My neighbour is feeding them.”
The post was inundated with hundreds of comments with a plethora of suggestions.

A fourth gardening fan suggested using cinnamon.
A fifth user agreed: “They’re lovely and I also love having them but last year they destroyed all my husband’s plants.
“So he had to cover his pots and spread some cinnamon in it.
“It kept them away from the pots but still coming into our garden for nuts.”
Another person replied: “If they are a problem for you try the ornamental birds of prey they do one somewhere that can be attached on your fence.
“If the only way to the neighbours garden is through yours you might not deter them.
“They are lovely but they can be a real problem if you become overrun like anything else.”
A third suggested: “Read to put an ornamental cat in the garden, it has seemed to work a bit not seen many since.”
A fourth said: “I heard that an owl ornament could help.”
