SOAP

 Here's a video on using soap to deter critters from coming in your garden. I haven't tried it but it seems possible.

"Political correctness is a doctrine,
fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and
rabidly promoted by an
unscrupulous mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible
to pick up a turd by the clean end."

   In an earlier life, I had a small apple orchard consisting of 250 trees.  When the trees were small, we used hotel sized bars of Irish Sprig soap to discourage deer from nibbling on our young trees.  We would drill a hole in the center of the bar and then tied it to the tree with a waxed twine.  The system worked quite well, nd it was effective against deer.

We mist diluted dish washing soap onto the leaves of plants we want to keep insects off of.

It is an old remedy that still works.
