- Best Days
A collection of helpful hints for everyday life.
This time of year, squirrels enjoy making meals out of your carved Jack-O-Lanterns and decorative pumpkins. Try this natural method to keep them away without harming them: Combine 1 gallon of water, 1 teaspoon dish soap, and a small bottle of hot sauce. Fill a spray bottle with the mixture, and spray your pumpkins, inside and out. The solution will make the pumpkin unpalatable to the squirrels when they try snack on them.
