I live in a neighborhood where skunks make their rounds. I wanted a repellent to keep them at bay. I heard about a product called Shake-Away. I visited the website where they sell it which is Critter-Repellent.com. I decided to try a 3lb supply and when it arrived promptly put it around the property lines and in other strategic areas. Although I cannot recommend it for squirrels it really worked wonders with the skunk population. They did not show up here after that. The skunks were the main creature I wanted to repel so I was very happy with the product. Apparently the repellent is made from the urine of the natural enemy of the skunk. It is a white granular substance, easy to apply with no fuss. Comes in a decent container that makes the application process pretty easy. The price that I quoted above of 36.70 includes shipping and sales tax.
