The neighbors have a walnut tree that hangs over my back sidewalk and the squirrels drop all the shells on my walk and yard it stains the walk. Then I have those fuzzy walnut worms come crawling down the sidewalk to my house.

Is their anything I can put around that tree or in the grass to stop this.

Squirrels do not like pepper of any can make a mix of  1 teasp of non-alcohol liquid soap and spray the tree that hangs over into your yard.........and spray the ground & sidewalk on your side........that will keep the worms away............if you are on good terms with your neighbor you can nicely suggest that dormant oil in the fall & spring will stop this and both of you can have walnuts next year.
