Chili Pepper Pest Control

Most animal lovers are happy to see bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, and groundhogs, but every now and then, friendly backyard wildlife will make themselves comfortable to the point of destroying a lawn or even damaging the house itself. Extermination can be unnecessarily cruel, and catch-and-release can spread disease or leave babies motherless. So what can you do?

One way to deter backyard pests is to leave numerous very hot peppers throughout your property for a few days or weeks. The animals will nibble the peppers and quickly figure out that your yard is full of food that hurts, and not a place to raise a family. They’ll usually disperse and find somewhere else to live.
