    • Make Your Own Liquid Critter Fencing

      Deer Fence Make Your Own Liquid Critter Fencing - The Garden is in, sprouting new shoots every day & you've been watching it grow. Unfortunately, so have the rabbits, moles, gophers and deer!

      You'll Need:
      1 gallon jug
      12-18 Eggs
      3-5 Tbs Minced Garlic
      1 T. Cayenne Pepper

      Start with a 1 gallon Plastic Jug.
      Puree 12-18 eggs in a blender- this makes them smooth & not clumpy, pour them into your jug.
      Add approximately 3-5 T. of Fresh minced Garlic.
      Add 1 T. Cayenne Pepper Powder.
      Tighten the top & shake Vigorously. Add water to fill to 3/4 of the way full.

      Let the container set for 7-10 days, allowing the eggs to putrify. Label it as Poison and keep it OUTSIDE, Out of the Sun. Shake well prior to use.

      Make Your Own Liquid FencingTo Use: Open outside, attach a spray nozzle to the top and spray around your garden. You will need to reapply 1x weekly & after any heavy rains. While it will stink upon application after several hours it will dry and not smell (to you anyway!) The critters- moles, deer, rabbits, gophers, will not come anywhere near it!

        I want to try a garden this year, thanks for the ideas! I live out by the desert and all kinds of critters try and come and munch (the coyotes especially like to try and get my cats

        This works nicely around the perimeter of the garden, just be sure you don't spray it on the foliage of the garden as you could potentially get salmonella poisoning!

        I'm wondering if this works on mice as well? Any thoughts?

        I am wanting to try this! We bought a commercially prepared 'predator' spray. OMGOSH!! When I sprayed it around the garden I had to come in the house and toss my cookies!! It smelled like death and then some!!! Eeeeeeww... Predator urine and predator blood!! OH! My it was so bad!!! I'm thinking this might be preferable. And if it works I don't have to wretch and vomit after each application!!! That's a bonus.. and this will be cheaper... the commercially prepared stuff is like $30 for .. I don't even know the ounces. It's like as small as buying a Clorox bleach spray for your kitchen.. 15oz??? I don't know.

        This, if it works, will be a God send for me!!! Thank you!

        Worth a try - I'm also in the desert and critters get everything.

        I'm going to try this to keep the felines out of my garden.

        I don't have problems as much with the munching critters as I do with cats using my garden as a litter box. I never walk on the soil of my garden (all the beds are 2-3 feet across), and so the soils is extremely friable. The cats love to dig in it and leave "deposits". Thanks for the idea.

        We'll be trying a garden this year, so this sounds good to try.

        Worth trying .... when you feed more of the animals than your family any smell is worth it.

      If this is a repeat post, I apologise. My last seems to have disappeared.

      I love hummus and have used peanut butter as a substitute for tahini, but it seemed to be missing something. I keep a...

      Re: Set-Up-Camp Supper

      We LOVE camping! I agree that set-up days can be a hassle. Normally what I do prior to camping for the week (or weekend!) is pre-cook a few items to make it easier. I make a menu plan, just as I...
