No. We have 5 pecan trees in our yard. 2 next door and probaly 5 to 7 in neighbors across alleyway. Squirrels are everywhere here. My cats chase them. My dogs chase them. They eat our pecans and throw down chewed green pecans at us. They also eat the green pice cones from the pine trees in the backyard. They have not gotten into our greenhouses at all.

Squirrels & coons haven't been a problem, but rats - they are the bane of my greenhouse existence! They tunnel under the walls and they chew holes in the cover. They eat my broccoli plants (not sure why, but they leave the cauliflower & brussels sprouts alone). I finally took my barn cat into the house for a while and I've been leaving rat poison out to kill the suckers. Luckily, they like the bait the poison is in better than they like broccoli!
