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!

Homemade Liquid Fencing to keep Animals out

Homemade Liquid Critter Fencing

You’ll Need:
1 gallon jug
12-18 Eggs
3-5 Tbs Minced Garlic
1 Tbs. Cayenne Pepper

  1. Start with a 1-gallon plastic jug.
  2. Puree 12-18 eggs in a blender- this makes them smooth, rather than clumpy, pour them into your jug.
  3. Add approximately 3-5 tablespoons of freshly minced garlic.
  4. Add one tablespoon of cayenne pepper powder.
  5. Tighten the top and shake the container vigorously to fully incorporate the ingredients. Add water to fill to 3/4 of the way full.

Let the container sit 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.

To Use: Open outside, attach a spray nozzle to the top and spray around your garden. You will need to reapply once weekly as well as 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!

  1. 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 🙁

  2. 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!

  3. i want to try a garden again, after years of not having one due to pesty critters…i will try this.. thank you…:party1::party1:

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. Do you have to strain the mixture before spraying? I have trouble with particles from the pepper clogging my sprayer.

  7. Don’t use Red Pepper Flakes as they will clog the sprayer. Be sure to use Ground Cayenne Pepper and you shouldn’t have that problem.
