Florida squirrels!! ARG!
I NEVER thought I would ever want to kill a squirrel, heck in previous states I have even put up squirrel houses so they would be on my property.
But the squirrels down here in St Pete have made me feel quite the opposite. I am almost ready to buy a shotgun (doubt the neighbors would like that) or put out poison (and I rarely kill even insects).
But these guys have been digging up all my small plants, pulling new plants out of pots and deheading flowers and branches. I think I would ring their little necks if i could get to them.
I am looking for effective deterrents that won;t force me from my yard. [ok, i read one suggestion on laying ammonia laced rags around the garden.that won;'t work]
I am going to get a couple of habanaros and chop them up with a little water, vinegar and oil and try spraying that extract on some plants / pots.. Does anyone have any experience in this method. i.e. does it work and any plants that it has harmed?
Any other options I can try, that you have found that works here on these overgrown gremlins? . I have also read Fox urine, which I would need to go buy. [Heck, I might be willing to get a pet fox a this point]
