    Squirrels definitely will always do this and many birds will also - it is food - put some chicken wire over the bulbsuntil they are growing well.

    Cats, they love earth. Or maybe mice, little blighters spoilt seed trays and a lovely clematis I have in the greenhouse.

    Used a wild cam to see what was digging up ours and it turned out to be a rat. Have also seen them digging up spuds!

    Voles are another culprit!

    +1 on Voles & mice, I found a pille of bulbs hidden in the back of a shed.

    Tigerduck's, they are flying north just now and bulbs are their favourite food (how they digest the class nobody knows)

    I have some feral cats that dig the bulbs out my tubs, then use them as litter trays. Charming.
