If you have nuisance wildlife problems around your property, and you are at your wits’ end trying to abate their destructive activity, you might be considering a poisonous repellent. But please do not go that route! Not only are poisons and toxic repellents inhumane, they are also very bad for the environment. They can even pose health and safety risks to dogs, cats, and young children.
Rather than opting for something that is terrible, frowned upon, and really ineffective, simply make your own, homemade animal repellent instead! By using non-toxic, organic ingredients, most of which can be found right inside your own cupboards, you can make a safe and humane solution that will thwart all sorts of nuisance wildlife.
