spicy squirrils

This morning I went outside and found some squirrels sniffing about my pepper plants. I have 2 types, plain green bell peppers and habenero peppers. The habs are a type of hot pepper, a very hot pepper. They are starting to set fruit and do not have any sizable pods yet. But if the fluffy-tailed tree rats keep poking about and sample them I expect squirrely screams and high-velocity departure from the plants. A friend of mine saw a squirrel take a bite from one of his pepper plants and swears that the beastie was up a tree before the dropped pod hit the ground. And there were no further raids on his plants after that.
