Gardening is a hobby in which the gardener has to wait awhile to enjoy the fruits of her labour. Flowers and vegetables, whether planted as seedlings or with seeds, take time to mature and produce their full beauty. Nothing is more frustrating than looking out your window to check the progress of your garden only to discover that some animal has feasted on your hard work. Commercial animal repellents are available for purchase, but you can use a rather handy home remedy to keep many garden-eating animals away.

Tips and warnings

  • Use fresh urine each time and store your plastic spray bottle outdoors where it won't be confused for a household cleaner.
  • Thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables that have been sprayed with urine spray. Use mild soap and warm water to wash.
