if it's animals you need a 6 ft fence with a very fine added fence at the bottom for ground hogs & rabbits. If it bugs you need to wait until the sun starts to go down mix 1 teasp liquid hand soap w 1 qt water put into sprayer and you might need to do it again when it rains. Next make a ring of lime around the plants about 6 inches away. They also now have veggies covers to keep bugs out and let light & water into the plant. Now is the time to apply lime & old horse manure, leaves, hay, mulch and turn your soil today is April 1, 2014.
