    Has anyone ever heard of or used this against nocturnal feral animals?? It is for sale in my "EggCartons.com" mag and sure would be a fairly cheep addtion to some other methods of keeping those nasty chicken hungry pests away. Just really hoping someone has something good to say about it. Thanks:)

    Lots on here have commented about this. A few felt it was effective, but most did not. At the least, it has to be moved around often, I gather.

    After working in state parks for several years,we came up with a solution to keep bears & other predators out of the dumpsters,which is a smorgasbord of food. Simply spray with bleach. The bleach moleculed actually stick in your lungs.(Any body that smokes,can attest to bleach lung) Animals hate the smell. Works on Bear,cats,& coon.

    Thanks all:) and a question on the bleach..... sooo, how would i do that so the chickens dont have to live in a bleach smelling place. Oh, like mabie i could spray the parimiters of my yard not their particular area? That would be quite an area though, or could i put sticks around that i could spray with bleach instead of dousing the coop itself? Thanks for any info...
