Irish Spring Soap to Deter Pests

If you have trouble with wild cats, minks, or squirrels (or such pests) in your garden or flowerbeds then try grating up a bar of Irish Spring soap and sprinkle it sparingly throughout your garden and flowerbeds to keep them out.


It works! I use it only in certain areas, and I do not have a problem with those pesky little pests where I do not want them.

Interesting! I live in the UK,and I haven't seen Irish Spring Soap here; do you think this would work with other block soaps?

Not sure Ginger, but you can order some from if you really need it. Maybe even do a search on the ingredients and find something similar

Something taking big bites out of my green tomatoes and leaving them I heard if you put pans of water out that would stop them is that true
