Using Citrus Peels as Cat Repellent

If orange peels and lemon peels work, why not use orange or lemon juice in a garden sprayer and just spray the yard?

Feel free to try it. We're always open to learning something new. Probably be a little bit on the expensive side, unless you live in Florid or California, so it's not something most people would be using. Living in Florida, we have plenty of the citrus peels as well as the juice, but we drink the juice and use the peels in the gardens.

I expect the peels last longer as well. I have used lemon scented Mr Clean splashed full strength on the spots strays sprayed. They avoided those areas in future, and the Mr Clean cleaned up the spray.

Ants would be attracted to orange juice. Plus the zest of the fruit is where the oil is and is what makes it so strong.
