Discouraging Pesky Animals

Have a favorite flower bed, a vegetable garden or beautiful lawn a neighbor’s cat or dog persistently digs around in then uses to relieve itself? Try sprinkling ordinary coffee grounds throughout the entire area after you are finished brewing your coffee. Cats and dogs will find the unique aroma of coffee grounds to be disgustingly revolting, discouraging them from lingering for any length of time on your property.

Starbucks and many other coffee houses not only securely package their used coffee grounds, but they offer them free of charge to those interested in improving soil and helping plants thrive in spite of any pesky animals.
