A couple of years ago we attempted planting sweet peas and it turned into a all you can eat buffet for those chipmunks. Those small things occurred over our lawn like a fluffy little group. I am still bitter. This year, I’m looking for a new type of natural pest management and I’m THRILLED with the results. In one of those vintage camper groups I belong to some camper said that Irish Spring soap once sprinkled in campers will keep critters out throughout the winter weeks ) I’ve discovered a few camper swear by this method, and so I thought hey, if it works in campers perhaps it’ll work in gardens also. This is the way to repel garden pests using Irish Spring soap, you’re able to obviously rid of your garden of insects also!
