Get rid of squirrels
10 Wonderful and Cheap DIY Idea for Your Garden 4
You take Irish spring soap *no other brand* and "shave" slices off it. Leave the thin slivers around the garden. To use it on trees cut the bar into quarters then use a metal skewer (like a shish kebab stick) to poke a hole through the quartered piece.
