Dust,

That is also a great idea I had not thought of. I have some scents for hunting.
Coyote
Bobcat
That should also work! And with the pepper also.

I must tell a joke on my self! When I was whipping up my witches compund in water of Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, Red Pepper on the stove. My wife came into the kitchen and wondered why she was sneezing and her eyes were watering! "OOPS"! The steam was coming up from the pan!

Thanks to all for the great ideas! I will use them!

It is a shame you can't find a way to dump some of your concoction on the squirrels. After wearing that concoction for a couple days the squirrel would leave the county.

Well finally found the solution for the Squirrels eating up my Cuddeback Trail Cameras.

Vaseline laced with Cyan Pepper making a paste composition. Put some on the face of the Camera and put them in the Cudde Trail Camera Safe with Vaseline and Cyan on top of the safe box!
No more dining on the Cameras. Were literally eating the plastic up on them before as per my previous comments. Thanks to all for your advice and ideas.

Glad you found a solution to your problem but never heard of squirrels chewing on anything like that unless it had salt on it. Salt on your hands maybe.

I've had squirrels chew through the lids of plastic trash cans before, which I can almost understand. But I have also had them chew through plastic gas cans that were full of fuel as well, which made no sense to me what so ever.

rats and squirrels will do a number on electrical wiring and tubing on vehicles. years ago when i use to do lots of four wheeler and motorcycle work, i did lots of wiring, tubing and hose repairs on them when they sat up on deer leases for extended periods of time when not being used. they could massive amounts of damage that were costly to repair.

lots of these belonged to guys that lived out of town and would leave their four wheelers in a barn or shed on their deer lease, rather than hauling them back and forth. i told them it would be much lest costly to either haul them back and forth, or rent a storage building in town.

I'VE had a problem with ground squirrels and rabbits eating my tomatoes off the plants. I boil about 4 habaneros and strain the liquid into a spray bottle , sprat the plants, works great. I also had a dog that chewed a few select items such as new carpet. I sprayed every thing he might chew. The dog quit chewing. when I plant my garden everything gets sprayed, no more plants get chewed off. I reapply when ti rains, not sure if it needs reapplied.

The things will chew through vinyl and aluminum siding as well as wood.
Last year and fall before we had lots of squirrels around here. We had several nesting falcons, hawks and eagles and then the somewhat local population of coyotes started denning up in blow downs not far from our home. We don't have squirrels or rabbits or rats or turkeys or deer around here now. The turkeys were always keeping us entertained as well as the deer. The sighting of a bear and a couple, at least of mountain lions within two miles might have something to do with it too. Unfortuately I can't get a shot at any of them. They would frown on me setting up a predator call, in the cove and sitting on the porch with a rifle. But no squirrels.
