Irish Spring

ptilda(3/4)July 3, 2009

I did it! I went to the Family Dollar in town, bought an economy-size pack of 7 bars of Irish Spring, gave 3 to my sister for her veggie/herb garden that's been under attack from Bambi & friends & I cut up the remaining pieces & scattered them around my Hosta garden that was being demolished by the little snots. So, I guess I just have to wait & see now... Everyone on the Hosta forum swears by it, so...

The problem is the sent dissipate rather fast so you have to keep adding shaving every few days.

I'm glad it worked for you but my experience was nothing short of bizarre. After putting the bars out on strings or on wires I would return to find them GONE the next morning. I thought at first it was juvenile vandalism but I live a private rural area with no passerby traffic.

I finally rigged up a photoelectric trip camera. It was family of red foxes.

Irish Spring was like catnip to them and they ate it. Couldn't get enough.

That is so funny! And explains a bizarre thing I found!

Last summer I was snooping around a vacant old house down our street looking for bulbs & perennials to dig-up (I wasn't stealing - I was rescuing them). I found an empty den half-dug into the dirt under a huge old Juniper. Inside was maybe 20 tennis balls & golf balls, and 2 bars of Irish Spring. One was still in it's wrapper, and one had a rope tied to it thru a drilled hole, and both looked alittle bit chewed or scratched-up.
We thought maybe a coyote puppy saw it swinging from a branch & thought it was a toy, but couldn't figure out the unopened bar.
