Squirrel Chaser Ingredients?
Someone recommended Squirrel Chasers in the local paper today. I had never heard of such a thing. Turns out, it's some kind of concoction in a bag, lots of places sell them -- Miles Kimball, for one. A set of 3 bags is $7.99.
I'm curious as to what the ingredients are. Does anyone know? I did a little Googling and I found an article from the Florida Today newspaper that contained a recipe for something they called "Squirrel Beater Tonic". But it's a liquid that you spray. There were some other recipes for deer repellant and such. I'm providing the link. Scroll to the bottom for the recipes.
I wonder if the stuff they're selling in bags is something like wood chips saturated with smelly stuff. Has anybody tried "Squirrel Chasers" in bags and do they work? If so, how long does a bag last? Does anyone have a recipe for the stuff in the bags?
I've got a pesky little fellow who's determined to get what few apples exist on my apple tree. It is even brave enough to risk getting into the yard with the dog, though he high-tails it when the dog sees him. Only thing is, the dog's not always outside, and when he is, he's not always very vigilant.
