Squirrels and chipmunks love tender bulbs. Given half a chance they will dig them up for a tasty meal right after they have been planted. You can deter them by tossing an old grill rack that you have salvaged on top of the area where the bulbs have been planted. These DIY bulb protectors do a great job of keeping the critters away from your precious plantings.
Grill racks make great bulb protectors.
Leave the grill in place for a month or so until the soil settles down and the bulbs have a chance to take root in the soil. This will make them harder to get to and less attractive.
After a month or so, remove the rack and store for another bulb planting.
