Approximately 90% of Eastern Gray Squirrels and Red Squirrels do not eat WBU Hot Pepper Products.

Chipmunks are a bit more challenging as they have fur-lined cheek pouches and this fur seems to act as a barrier to the effectiveness of the products. Hot pepper products contain capsaicin, a strong irritant to eyes, nose and skin. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Keep out of reach of children.
