How A Bar Of Soap Can Eliminate Pesky Pests From Your Bird Feeder
Bird aficionados have found a simple yet innovative way to keep pesky pests like squirrels away from bird feeders by using a common household item: Irish
Spring soap.
Hanging a mesh bag or sock filled with a bar of Irish Spring soap near or on bird feeders significantly reduces the presence of critters, as they do not like the soap’s smell.
The soap can also be cut into pieces and spread around the garden for wider protection. This method avoids the use of pesticides or chemicals, making it a wildlife-friendly option.
Moreover, grated Irish Spring soap can be scattered around plants to protect flowers and vegetables from deer or sprinkled near doors and windows to keep spiders at bay.
