Question: What is it in Murphy's Oil Soap that makes it so repellant to squirrels and other animals? Why?
Answer: I think it is the citrus fragrance that they don't like. I can't find out exactly what is in the fragrance but Murphy's Oil Soap is simply a blend of fatty acids (potassium of vegetable oil), alcohol and fragrance.
