Wildlife Repellent Recipe

Stay out of my garden!

by Carol Martino


  • 1  whole Spanish onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper


  • Chop up the onion and the pepper.
  • Mix together and boil in 2 quarts of water for about 20 min.
  • Let cool, and strain the water through a cheesecloth.

Using a garden sprayer, spray any area outside where wild animals or even neighborhood pets are being a nuisance.   This probably will not work for birds (birds do not have a sense of smell.)   This process may have to be carried out for a period of 2 weeks to ensure success.   This mixture is non-toxic and it will not harm any animal, but will succeed in keeping them away.
