Squirrels not like chilli powder, so you could spinkle this on the seed heads, unfortunatly birds are not bothered by chilli so you would need another idea for them. Good work well researched. Planting garlic or onions next to your carrot crop will help deter carrot fly as it disguises the carrot smell

Yes but you whould just have to come around every once and a while take them out and smash them is whould save monney too
portal pro2 years ago
it whould be a good idea to plant a gralic plant right beside the plant you wont to save or keep you should add that just saying good idea this is really good

it wouldn't be helpful becoz-
1. the garlic or the onion grows underground
2. even if it grew above, you know the fumes and the fragrence or whatever you say wouldn't be released into the air.(It is the reason you need to smash them)

We have a dog (as seen in my profile picture) and he barks a lot. We got him a birdhouse that constantly makes ultrasonic sound. We got it at pet-co for like $70 or something, it works great!

I wonder if this'll work on underground critters as well. Those are the real problem around here. Will have to try it out!
Good idea--I'll have to see how it works on squirrels! You've got my vote.
