    Maybe this will help keep my dogs out of the flower beds: "If you finely chop citrus rinds and sprinkle them on the mulch in your garden, they keep neighborhood cats, dogs and other critters away from your veggies. I guess animals don’t like the smell of the orange oil. I’ve been using this method in the front garden and it’s working."

    I want to keep neighbor's cats away from places where wild birds frequent. I've seen way too many killed just for fun.

    I'll have to try this. Im tired of neighbors cats leaving their mess in my gardens. There's pooper scooper laws that I obey. Should be the same for cat owners.
