Those vermin otherwise known as squirrels are done. D.O.N.E. They have dug up their last bulb, they have unearthed their last plant. Let's not forget how they destroyed my pumpkins last fall, either. I have a plan of attack now so i don't return after work to find this upsetting image again.
Poor, poor little pepper plant. Luckily, he was able to be saved and now i have the solution.
Oh yes. That's right. Irish Spring and a cheese grater. Apparently squirrels hate the smell of the soap, so they'll stay out of your garden. Precisely what i'm after.
Not sure if the "hydrobeads" will be quite as effective, and seems a shame to waste them on these vermin instead of my sweet darling's face, so i grabbed the regular bar from the shower. With my weapons drawn, i circled the perimeter of my home, scrambling into the flowerbeds, and grating like a maniac.
So now i have the cleanest smelling garden and perhaps the most sudsiest-for what happens when it rains?
Hopefully i am not poisoning the squirrels-as much as i detest them, i don't want to come home to a lawn littered with dead vermin, either! Has anyone ever heard of this remedy? Anyone ever try it?
I'll let you guys know how it goes!
