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.

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
