There is nothing more soul destroying than arriving on your allotment garden to find your entire Sweetcorn harvest has been destroyed.
But what can we do to stop this from happening again?
You could erect a fence of very thin holed chicken wire around the crop but unfortunately rats can climb so unless you are going to put an entire frame around your crop then I’m not sure what we can do. Remember that rats can also dig so the wire would have to be buried in the ground. This idea will also protect the harvest from squirrels.
