if you mix 1 part water and 1/4 part cumin or chili powder and apply it (in a spray or with a sponge) to the fruits or whatever they're messing with, they'll stay away. It sounds mean, but it's about all you can do other than kill them, and this seems a lot better. :DHow can i stop squirrels from eating the fruit off my trees?
Have you ever tried the ';Liquid Fence'; products? Meijer carries them. It's a spray you spray on your plants and the critters or insects don't bother them. They have different sprays for different pests/critters. My friends swear by them.
What we did is we stretched a huge net under one of our pear trees. The squirrels couldn't get to the tree to climb up it AND all the ripe fruit dropped into the net. The net was not good enough to hold the squirrels so they stayed away.
I would stay away from spraying the fruit.
I don't know what kind of tree you have or how big it is, but you can buy netting to keep the squirrels and birds out of your fruit. I have a fig tree and I tried this . It sorta worked, but not 100%.
You can't. You can't convince a hawk to move into your yard, so you'll just have to get a BB gun. Watch where you're pointing that thing so, if you miss the squirrel, you don't shoot a person or a window.
get a cat and if needed have it declawed.
