After years of fighting with the little critters, I came up with this EASY to make homemade squirrel repellent spray to keep the squirrels and chipmunks away from your garden or outside fall decor.

– 4 cups Water – 1 oz Hot Sauce  – 3 drops Dish Soap  – 1 Spray Bottle


– Pour 4 cups water into the spray bottle – Add ½ bottle hot sauce  – Add 3 drops dish soap – Close spray bottle and gently shake


– Spray liberally on any garden vegetables or flowers. Re-apply after heavy rains. – This won’t harm the squirrels and chipmunks, it will just deter them from eating your stuff

Disclaimer: Please don’t be silly and spray this stuff in your eyes or face. It is a pepper based spray and it is HOT!
