Homemade Cat Repellent / Dog Repellent

Homemade Cat Repellent / Dog Repellent

Saw a recipe in newspaper. Vinegar, liquid soap and water. Equal parts. Spray on lawn. Recipe said use Dawn soap, but any seems to work.

Urine or ammonia not good, will have cats return.

In some climates citrate solutions (orange or lemon) attract bees. I've been trying the vinegar mix and getting good results no cats, or dogs. (10/01/2007) By D. H. B.

Other options

Other posted solutions include planting rosemary where you don't want cats, or using various citrus scrapings (lemons, oranges, etc.) mixed in a spray bottle with water and used on areas where cats / dogs are not encouraged. Citronella was also mentioned. None of these repellent formulas have been tested (yet!) by yours truly, so try on your own.
