Squirrels and chipmunks can be a headache to get rid of. They are very persistent and nimble. They won’t just leave because you scared them off. They will come back, so you need to know how to send them packing. You can simply do this with some hot pepper sauce.
Chipmunks and squirrels are the cutest little creatures. They are nice to observe out in the wild. And even in your backyard or on your fence. But that is only if they understand boundaries. Which they hardly care about.
These little guys will take over your garden and become the master gardener. They will dig up your flowers and crops. We humans will never understand it. But this is just how they do their thing.
They will also take up residence in your house. It would be good if they would let you know in advance, that they will be moving in so you can prepare for them by making space, or lock them out. But they never ever do that.
It’s no fun though when they move into your attic and live among your treasured stuff packed in boxes. Or when they decide to nibble on your stuff.
These critters will also eat away your walls. Since they don’t really enter your home through doors and windows, they are good ar making their own entrance and exit routes.
Then you will have to make repairs on your home. This is so awful and can cost you a lot of money. And sometimes, they do come back after you make repairs. And the cycle continues.
You will need to focus on getting rid of them instead of having to constantly patch your walls.
Don’t even think about those toxic products for repelling these types of critters. Those products are not good for you and your environment. It does no good to make your home toxic just to get rid of some pesky creatures.
Avoid setting traps too. You don’t have to kill the little critters. We can all co-exist. But just not in our homes and gardens. So here is the mixture for a good Squirrel & Chipmunk Repelling Solution With Hot Peppers.
3 Cups Water
1/2 dz Hot Peppers or a 1 Tsp Hot Pepper Sauce
Blend the peppers and water in your blender. Then put in a spray bottle, and spray your garden and areas of your house where squirrel might enter from. Use this mixture strategically though. Remember, this is a hot pepper mixture and it can also cause discomfort to humans and our pets.
If you are using hot pepper sauce instead of peppers, simply mix the water with the sauce together.
Squirrels and chipmunks hate the taste and smell of hot peppers. So this will make them stay away from your property. You can also leave peppers near your bird feeders to prevent them from eating your bird food. The birds won’t mind the peppers, but the squirrels and chipmunks will have to pass on not only the hot peppers, but also the bird food,
