Irish Spring Soap Actually Seems to Keep Squirrels Away

Last year I got a total of two peppers out of my two pepper plants and the squirrels got one of them. I like squirrels but that sucked. This year something has been eating the shoots off the snap pea plants and we didn't get a tone of peas as a result. I could hear them through the window at night, routing around, getting up to no good. Well, not anymore.

I saw the Irish Spring soap trick on Pinterest so I bought 2 bars from Dollarama. I chopped them in half and drilled a hole in them for the string and hung them on the deck. They are pretty smelly but it is not a bad smell and the critters have not come around since so far.

Something on Pinterest that did what it promised!
