Who Stole My Almonds?

Q. I live on Black Mountain in Anthem in Henderson, Nv.  I have an almond tree about 3 feet high.  It must have had about 2 dozen almonds on it.  I woke up yesterday morning and all the almonds were gone over nite without a trace of hulks or shells.  What animal could have taken 24 almonds over nite? 

A. This is probably the culprit. As soon as I was ready to take his picture, he did this to me! The antelope ground squirrel.


  1. I love your blog. I had this same issue and ended up picking all my almonds early! Is there any way to repel these little guys?

  2. You did it right. Pick them right after they start to split and put them to dry out of the sun. The usual control is poison bait.
