    I sprinkle Cayenne pepper on the side of the yard they seem to like. It has to be renewed every couple of days until they get the message, and when a new batch of babies are born. I buy a big shaker at the Dollar Store. Pinecones work for a lot of animals too; cats,dogs,racoons,skunks. They don't like pushing those 'prickly' things around to do their business.

    I have used Paprika & Cayenne so far. But every time you water the plants you need to re apply. Looking for something a little more permanent..

    Use human hair. Go to your local hair dresser and ask for a bag of hair clippings. Sprinkle it around where you see the critters and they will go away.

    I have heard dog hair.
    I want them out of my big maple tree. The keep stripping the bark off the limbs higher up. It comes down and I have to pick it up or it kills the grass it sits on.
