Keeping Squirrels off of Fruit Trees

Keeping squirrels from harvesting your apples and pears. Puncture a hole in a few aluminum pie plates, tie them singly with twine to the lower branches of your fruit trees. The clanging will scare them away.

Keeping Squirrels off of Fruit Trees

Here is a recipe called Squirrel Beaters Tonic

  • 2 Tbsp. of cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. of tabasco sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. of chilli pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. of Murphy Oil Soap
  • 1 quart of warm water
Mix all together and pour in a hand sprayer and spray all over fruit. Hope it works for you. I have not tried it yet but plan to.
