Will squirrels, chipmunks or groundhogs go after my zinnias this spring and summer?

If I plant some zinnia seeds thus spring in May to bloom this summer do you think those rodents will go after the plants while growing? I know they’ve dug up sunflower seeds before. Thanks

    Been told by others that actual moth balls laid in your flower beds rids of some pest.

    Or the old scarecrow piece helps or other wind mills etc.  to scare off them.

    I feed 3 stray cats who guard my garden in return, so I have no problem there. I would say birds are what are eating the seeds. If you bury the seeds as you should, they probably won't bother them. As to them eating the plants, don't know, never had my zinnias eaten. Bean plants and marigolds, yes, but never zinnia.

    Probably not. Zinnia seeds aren’t as big and nutritious as sunflower seeds.
