Step 1: For A Bambi Free Zone
You will need:
An old flower pot, plastic or clay
An old sock or the foot part of a pair of hosiery
String, Twine or anything you can make a tie and hanger with
Any ONE of the following:
Strong smelling deodorant soap like Irish Spring
Raw Garlic Cloves
Athletes Foot Powder
6 - 12 Cotton Balls soaked in Peppermint Oil
