    Now, back in the day, my father's solution to this and any related problem was a good dose of Jeyes Fluid.

    Wonder if you can still get Jeyes Fluid? Can't imagine it's very good for plants though.

    You can get Jeyes Fluid. If you have cats, it's quite poisonous to them.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    Just about everything is poisonous to cats, because they have a defective gene for a detoxifying enzyme called UGT1A6 :

    Evolution of a Major Drug Metabolizing Enzyme Defect in the Domestic Cat and Other Felidae: Phylogenetic Timing and the Role of Hypercarnivory

    According to that article the mutation occurred between 35 & 11 million years ago, but they seem to get by OK.

    Yeah but they are stupid enough to lick Jeyes fluid and anti-freeze but clever enough to stay away from chilli powder. Squirrels do the opposite and rub the chilli into their eyes.
