Dogs and cats
Any ideas about how to keep all of the neighborhood dogs and cats out of our yard? We have no pets, however we have plenty of pet POOP all over the yard!:mad:

Cayenne Pepper is really cheap at Walmart. Buy it in Bulk. Apply liberally. Reapply after it rains. It's nice b/c the birds don't taste it (really!) so it just keeps the varmints out of your yard.

I also keep a supply of bags next to my door. When I see someone letting their dog crap in my yard I run out with a bag, and an enthusiastic, "Oh, you must have forgotten your bag. Have one of mine!"

One of my neighbors keeps the cats out of her flowers with moth balls.

Get a motion sensor operated sprinkler. If it gets the owner as well as the animal you get bonus points. : )

Don't use it on the dog or cat, instead use it on their owner.

Dumb ones get trapped and sent to animal control

Cats on Ragtop
I am having trouble with local cats on my Convertible while parked under the carport. (converted garage to den) I bought some dust off the internet and while it worked, is expensive. Also, rain washes the dust away. Does the cayenne pepper really work in this situation? :huh:
