Keeping Squirrels Out of the Garden

To keep squirrels away from or keep them from eating your garden plants, mix this:

  • 1 gallon of water
  • 6 capfuls of Murphy's Oil Soap
  • 2 Tbsp. of cayenne pepper

Spray onto plants. This does not harm the plants and will keep the squirrels away.

I was just given the suggestion of putting kids pin wheels around my garden and in my pots. Figure it is worth a try.

Keeping Squirrels Out of the Garden

The best way I kept squirrels from digging up my corn kernels that I planted was to spread hair clippings that I got from my barber. They smell the human scent and stay away, so far it has worked. (07/02/2008)

Keeping Squirrels Out of the Garden

I have tried everything to keep those crazy things out of my potted plants and they are still making my morning chore of cleaning up split soil and re potting my plants a nightmare. My solution, a large outdoor cat. It has worked. They mess with the cat, but from afar. Put the fear in them, HA! Good luck. (08/24/2008)

I used coffee grounds to keep the squirrels from going after my tomatoes. I sprinkle it around weekly. (09/13/2008)
