First, the squirrel repellent. As many of you know, a bunch of horrendous squirrels ransacked my beautiful tomato plants. All of our tomatoes vanished overnight! Thankfully, there are some blooms in progress, but I'm not about to let those varmints get those too! So my father-in-law suggested I try this green pest repellent.
|What you'll need: Cayenne pepper powder, jalapeño pepper, white onion, hot sauce, coffee filter (to strain) and cheap water bottle|
The process is pretty easy, just a bit painful to the nose & eyes. First, start a pot of boiling water. While the water is heating, cut up the white onion and pepper. Once the water is boiling, slide the onion & pepper in then add cayenne pepper powder. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

After that, I used a funnel to pour the mixture into a spray bottle. We are now ready and armed to repel squirrels!

So pretty, pretty please talk to me, world!
