Bonide Hot Pepper Wax Animal Repellent RTU is an all natural product that uses capsaicin, the heat producing chemical in hot peppers, to repel and animals and deter them from chewing on propoerty. One application of Bonide Hot Pepper Wax Animal Repellent RTU can last for up to four weeks. Use Bonide Hot Pepper Wax Animal Repellent RTU on plants, edibles, ornamentals, and property like fences and wood structures.
The directions say that you should apply every 3 - 7 days for the first 2 - 3 weeks and then less frequently. We have, I think, very hungry and persistent deer. It needs to be sprayed more frequently. Sometimes I augment the spray with Chinese Hot pepper spray from the Asian market. The combination is excellent.
My problem with the squirrels eating away at my house, has subsided for now. I ordered this product because the noise of them gnawing on my house, and trying to get in was aggravating. The pellet rifle was doing the job when I was around, but I had to leave. When I saw the article on this product, I prayed that it would perform just as stated in the ad. When the package arrived I went to work and sprayed every gable of my house where they were chewing. The next day I did not here or see any movement around the effected areas. My only regret is that the bottle that I purchased was not large enough for me to totally saturate the wood all around. I do plan on ordering more to keep on hand, so that once the repairs are made, I will have enough to take care of, and prevent the little demons from returning. Thank you for making this repellent just for me and others like me who are at whits end trying to deter these pesky critters. Chicken wire or expanded metal will help on the inside, but the outside really catches H___. Problem solved for now. Please watch for my next order soon, Thank You!!!
I am combating squirrels that chew on the rough cedar trim on the gable ends of my home. I like the product but not the squirt bottle which will not shoot a stream to reach all of the chew spots. Therefore, I have bought an empty 32 oz. bottle from the local hardware store that is capable of shooting a stream over 20 ft. and transferred the Bonide Hot Pepper Wax animal Repellent.
Can Bonide Hot Pepper Wax Animal Repellent RTU be used in an attic space and eaves where I have a squirrel issue?
Not 100% sure how they are getting in but can hear them run along the wood soffit. And above one of the bed rooms. The space is to limited along the eaves/soffit to put a cage trap. If I can't get rid of in this more natural way I will have to resort to a more lethal method of trapping
A better option would be DeTour For Rodents And Insects. This can be used to seals holes, cracks and crevices, removing rodents and insect harborages. This product creates a barrier sealant that repels rodents and insects, allowing a barrier so that they will not cross over due to the hot chili pepper oil. The main places for use are on pipes, along walls, in gnawed openings, runways, vent screens, A/C ducts, holes in walls, floor drains, near burrows, holes in sidings, doorways, in cracks, in rodent holes and grease traps.
