Tips for Repelling Squirrels
It's amazing how an animal's clever antics quickly become frustrating. We may admire a squirrel's dexterity when it scoops out the inside of an acorn, but watch that same squirrel twirl along tree limbs to get inside our house, and admiration turns to anger.
"Due to construction in my neighborhood, several gray squirrels recently relocated to a maple tree that abuts my deck. The squirrels have been very problematic: coming onto the deck, scurrying around on railings, and testing my dog and me to the limits. I was not encouraged by some of the reviews on this product, but decided to give it a try.
This product has been very successful in keeping the Maryland gray squirrels off of my deck, out of the lower branches of the maple tree, and off of the railings. The effects last at least two weeks, but if there is a heavy rain, I do need to re-apply. I only apply about 12 squirts around the railing, about 12 squirts to the trunk of the tree and some more squirts to lower branches that are accessible to the deck. This has been a great solution. No more dog scratching the door trying to get out to chase squirrels."
No doubt about it—squirrels can be quite clever but also quite troublesome. Sometimes, they feel like a nut. Sometimes, they don't. And when squirrels don't “feel like” food found in the wild, they may start eating your plants, your buds, your flowers. That's when it's time to take action!
How to Protect your Plants from Squirrel Damage
I Must Garden RTU Spray Squirrel Repellent Ready-to-Use Spray repels squirrels from destructively chewing on flowers, buds, and plants. Use freely on your rose, rhododendron, and camellia buds. Keep squirrels from eating the leaves of your plants by spraying them with I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent. Finally, you can see your plants bloom in all their glory.
Tree twigs and bark are also two of squirrels’ favorite foods. It's one thing when squirrels eat from a 60-foot-tall oak, but another story entirely when they eat your Japanese maple or Kwansan cherry. I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent is safe to spray on your most prized trees to prevent squirrels from chewing and gnawing.
How to Protect your Property from Squirrel Damage
I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent can also be sprayed on other items in your garden that squirrels find appealing. Protect your outdoor furniture with I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent. Squirrels will chew on inexpensive plastic furniture just as readily as they will chew on costly teak furniture. Squirrels just seem to like plastic and have been known to chew on all types of plastic articles found in the garden such as-pots, irrigation lines, fencing, garbage cans, irrigation covers, watering cans, tool handles, flower markers, statues - you name it - they'll chew it! I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent will protect your garden from their destructive chewing.

By spraying with I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent you can put a stop to the damage and get rid of the problems they cause.

Whether they are digging in pots or plants or your prized tulip bed, you can sprinkle I Must Garden Granular Squirrel Repellent directly onto soil and mulch. Squirrels don't like the smell of the granules so they look other places for food.
How to Protect Bulbs from Squirrel Damage
Use a combination of spray and granules when planting bulbs. Thoroughly spray with I Must Garden Squirrel Repellent, let dry, and then plant as usual. You can also combine granular repellent with the soil as you plant and finish with a sprinkling on top when done.
