Q: Hi Dave
Quick question….I’m looking for the recipe to keep varmints away from my plants. I believe that you published a chile pepper spray to keep rabbits and the such away. Can you give that recipe to me or provide the link? Thanks in advance.
A: Hello Charley:
The best thing to do would be to buy pepper spray at weapons store. It usually is 500,000 Scoville Heat Units and contains oleoresin capsicum. If you spray it on the ground or mulch around the plants, it will repel mammals such as squirrels and rabbits, but not birds.
