CRITTER RIDDER - Repels Raccoons, Skunks, Dogs, Cats, Squirrels, Groundhogs and Chipmunks
 
Critter Ridder® is a patented blend of ingredients derived from hot peppers that immediately irritates an animal’s senses of smell, taste and touch upon encounter. This overwhelming irritation sensation repels critters, and after a couple of unwelcome visits, they learn to stay away from your yard
 
• OMRI listed and USDA approved for use in organic gardening
•Won't damage soil or vegetation
•Lasts up to 30 days 

Critter Ridder® RTU (ready-to-use) liquid is perfect for multi-surface application. An ideal animal repellent, this can be used to prevent cats, dogs, raccoons, squirrels, groundhogs and skunks digging in your lawn, garden, or landscaped areas. 
It also helps keep animals from damaging ornamental/landscape planting and discourages squirrels from bird feeders. (When using on bird feeders especially wooden feeders, test-spray in an inconspicuous area to avoid staining.) The formula can reduce the frequent tearing of garbage bags by dogs, cats, squirrels and raccoons.

Critter Ridder Granual
Sprinkle granules on the ground around perimeters or across entry ways to deter animals from accessing protected areas. Use Critter Ridder® granules to keep animals out of gardens and flower beds and out from underneath porches and sheds. 
 
Squirrels - 
To repel a squirrel, a repellent with a mode of action that works via irritation or is a taste-based repellent is best. Additionally, because squirrels are so tenacious, it is strongly recommended to use both liquid and granular repellents to make your yard as uninviting as possible.
Spray CRITTER RIDDER onto surfaces like bird feeders, bulbs, and trees to keep squirrels off and prevent gnawing.
Sprinkle granular CRITTER RIDDER around the perimeter of structures, plants and gardens to prevent entry.
