    Mix hot red pepper into the bird seeds. Once the squirrels get it on their paws and try to lick it off, they get the burn and don't return. The red pepper doesn't bother the birds at all.

    Squirrels in the bird feeder? If feeder is on a pole, has a roof or shell on top, just apply Vaseline. Then you can have a bit of comedy as you watch them slide off until they just give up - which they do!

    To keep squirrels out of my plants I use plastic forks with the handles stuck in the soil surrounding the plant. This method keeps them away without harming them.

    Saturate cotton balls with Peppermint oil and place around plants - squirrels don't like the smell and will also keep mice away. Make sure you use oil and not extract.
