: Is it safe to use moth balls on the surface of vegetable garden to deter chipmunks and squirrels from digging up and eating pea and bean seeds? They could be removed when plants are established

Hi Joan,
NO, NO, PLEASE NO!! That stuff is toxic and the roots of your plants will take up what leaches into the soil.

Here's some ideas.
