Arlene’s Homemade Squirrel Repellent



Fill a 1 ½  - 2 qt. saucepan with water and heat to boiling.  Peel and chop an onion and two jalapeno peppers into small pieces and add to boiling water.  Add 1 Tablespoon each of paprika and cayenne pepper to the mix. Stir and simmer for 15 – 25 minutes.  Let the mixture cool.  Pour the mixture through a strainer into a bowl.  Pour the strained mixture into a spray bottle.  Spray the plant or the area where you have planted the bulbs.  Re-spray after a rain. As an added deterrent, sprinkle cayenne pepper and paprika over the area.
