Answer: There are a number of "home remedies" for repellants to deter animals such squirrels from corn, including this one: Mix 2 tablespoons hot cayenne pepper in a quart of very hot water and let sit until cool. Strain it and put it into a pump bottle, then add a teaspoon of horticultural oil. Shake well and spray on the husks starting before the squirrels attack. Reapply after rain or if squirrels become interested in the corn. Some gardeners also report success using commercial repellants as well as commercially available "predator urine" -- these are available through garden centers and suppliers such as Burpee (http://burpee.com/) or 1-800-888-1447 and should be applied according to the label instructions. Good luck with your corn!
