Squirrels are eating my roses! Does Deer Off spray work?

13 years ago

I'm finally beating back the gophers with Jeri's squat pot trick but now the squirrels are overrunning my garden because my *!!#$!! neighbor puts out peanuts for them. They come to bury them in my pot ghetto and while they're here they snack on the roses. They're fondest of Madame Alfred but today I looked at Clytemnestra who has recently made a comeback. She had a HUGE candelabra of buds yesterday and today they're GONE! Not the stems, just the buds were neatly bitten off.

Does anyone have experience with either deer spray or hot pepper spray to keep away squirrels?
