I received this question from a reader:
Hello, we have two semi-dwarf apple trees in our yard. I think an entire colony of squirrels have been eating apples on the tree. Any ideas to stop them would be appreciated.
I haven’t experienced this problem, but maybe you have.
How did you deal with this problem? Any suggestions?

Why I open some questions to readers
First of all, I’m not a gardening expert.
But we do have experts in Western New York who can give you advice if your plant isn’t growing well or if you don’t know the name of a plant or an insect. Get expert advice from the Master Gardeners with Cornell Cooperative Extension and the staff at your local garden center.
But sometimes quirky questions come up. These are questions that readers might be able to address.
Sending a question to me to post can be helpful if you’re looking for a wide range of opinions and don’t mind waiting for the answer. If you want to try this route, email the question to me at email@example.com and I’ll pose it to my readers in an upcoming issue.
