Does Olbas work?

I need to do something to deter cats from getting into my garden, I was told to try Olbas.


Answer by  n0wheregirl (59)

Olbas oil does work. We had the same problem with our cat getting into things she should not have. I found that Olbas oil worked better than other options, like bitter apple. Cayenne pepper worked to keep her from digging, however I believe that is "personal taste" to a cat. My mother's cat loved cayenne.

Olbas oil is said to work. However, lavender does also. Plant some in your garden, the scent is pleasant to humans and detestable to felines. Marigolds, geraniums, and petunias also seem to work. If you're looking for a stronger solution, animal urine, such as coyote's, is packaged and sold for people to sprinkle over their areas affected by unwelcome visitors.

Olbas is an oil made with pungent herbs. The strong smell may deter cats from entering your garden. Other products you could use would be Bitter Apple Spray or dried cayenne pepper used for cooking. None of these products is harmful to cats, but the smells are unpleasant.

It is said that they work very well but moth balls may also be a possibility for you. Try each one.

Well try that or just set some traps for your cats so they won't go to your garden. How about ammonia also?
