any solutions to slow them down besides a bb gun?
Paprika or chili powder. I do that in my beds for bulbs and such. Works great

Make sure you don't have a dog or cat around if you try this method. I sprinkle hair cutttings or tufts of dog fur from my shepherd around the bed .I heard that the chili powder thing works too.
Ok guys... THe only good way to deal with them is to TRAP them in a live trap and relocate them. Unless you live out in the sticks where you can get away with randomally poisining animals. I'm no tree hugger at all, but I do know you can't go killing them like that.
I don't know that deterrents work too well either. Squirrels are very clever and can tell the difference between the sent of a predator and the real deal. Iv'e used fox urine in my lawn to keep rabbits from eating my christmas lights (long story) and the squirrels hardly cared at all, they went right on about their days.
I have about 4 here that I feed, quite well, but I admit that too many would be a terrible nusicense. I don't even try to feed the birds anymore! THose critters sit and watch me fill the bird feeder and within 10 minutes are all over it like stink on chit.

C4 works the best in open areas, but I find bouncing bettys in the garden beds to most effective that way the bulbs don't get damaged...
