Waging war on squirrels

Sad, sad day. The squirrels didn’t even wait for the corn to grow corn. They just went after the apparently delicious stalks and leaves! I can’t believe it. I’ve read that cayenne pepper helps keep them away, but I didn’t have any so in a moment of desperation mixed dish soap with water and some siracha sauce (it’s all I had!). Then someone told me that the siracha sauce probably has sugar in it, which attracted the little buggers even more. So I found some red pepper flakes in my spice cabinet and sprinkled it all over the soil around the corn and even in the leaves a bit. That seemed to work for a few days. Booooooooo squirrels.
