I've taken a new tactic. This one got repotted into the bigger pot and moved to the screen porch.
I have two pots of cacti and they did minimal damage to this one. Maybe it was the spines. I've left them out on the deck for now.
This pot they emptied so I've given up on two of these pots. I moved the plants to an open bed in the vegetable garden.
The pot on the end above I moved to the porch.
This pot on the pond deck is too big to move so I repotted it and will have to try a mixture of cinnamon and ground pepper as well as a product someone recommended in a comment called Repels All.
Both planters under the swing were taken apart and I've replanted. Next time? I hope there won't be a next time.
This pot hadn't been touched before but its replanted and moved out of reach.
My amaryllis bulb was dumped and nibbled upon. I put it in the garage for now.
Pots are now lining the edge of the screen porch.
And the deck is almost bare of pots.
I hope I can report good news tomorrow.
