I've tried hair, plastic bags, radio, pie plates, soap, and other stuff. I make an egg, garlic, oil, and water mixture that i spray if it's not going to rain.My mom and I save the eggs that are cracked and I freeze them and use them for this. I've used liquid fence but that's expensive to use all the time It does last during the rain but not sure if it would have the last week as we've had alot of heavy rain.
They get used to things so you have to keep changing them. I want them out of the yard cause of the deer ticks too. Wish I would win the lottery so I could fence off the yard to keep them out and have some pine trees cut down that are close to the house and the ticks seems to hang around them.
