Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: To prevent squirrels, chipmunks, or mice from digging up bulbs, mix 3 tsp Tabasco Sauce, one tsp Chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon ivory dish washing liquid in 2 cups of water and put in a spray bottle. Spray solution on the soil where you have just planted the bulbs. You may need to reapply when it rains. This recipe also repels cats and dogs.
