‘My clever, cheap homemade spray will keep squirrels and foxes out the garden’

TikTok user’s dog reacts hilariously to squirrel on the TV

A man has tested out an easy, homemade solution that you can spray on your garden to get rid of squirrels and foxes that can wreak havoc on plants.

Foxes like to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and tend to root in gardens for meals.

The pests can also burrow into flower beds, which kills vegetation.

Meanwhile, squirrels also like feasting on garden seedlings, fruits, berries, flowers, leaves, and tree buds.

The TikToker, who goes by the name rooftop2table, tried out the hack on his rooftop garden, where he said he regularly gets unwanted squirrel visitors.

In the video, he says: “I still have a squirrel problem on my rooftop garden.

“They barely seem afraid of me and they poach my fruit that I’ve worked so hard on [growing].

“So, for the past two weeks, I’ve been saving up lots of my garlic scraps like skin or small cloves.”

He said he let the “garlic scraps” sit in a bowl of water for a couple of weeks.

He then sieved the liquid to get out any remaining chunks of garlic and then poured it into a spray bottle.

After successfully transferring the “funky-smelling” liquid, he used it to spray plants and the squirrel’s main access points to the roof.

“I even sprayed the trees that they climb up,” he said.

One user commented that they had also used the same method to keep foxes out of their garden.

The TikTok user wrote: “I did this for foxes… omg it’s a sickly pungent smell but seems to be working.”

Another advised to add hot pepper to the mixture, which is also supposed to act as a deterrent.

The user who posted the video explained that the smell gets weaker by the day so he advised spraying the liquid at least once a week.

Or if it rains, he said to respray the garden.
