How To Use Jalapenos To Keep Pesky Skunks Out Of The Garden
Skunks wreak havoc in the yard with their pungent spray and their habit of digging up the lawn and uprooting plants in search of food. To keep them at bay, use jalapenos.
The potency of the spice within jalapenos causes discomfort in a skunk's sensitive nasal passages. Skunks find it irritating and prefer to stay away from it.
Start by sourcing local jalapenos. Then, finely chop them and strategically position the jalapeno pieces around your property's boundaries or in skunk-prone spots.
To ensure that the jalapeno's spicy aroma remains potent enough to ward off these nocturnal visitors, add more jalapeno pieces every few days.
