But I have a problem and seeing if you could help me with. I have a customer who has a house with western cedar siding on it. The squirrels have chewed through the siding and gotten into the house in 12 different places and start to in several other places. This is not a new problem they have had this in the past and repaired it so this not isolated to just one squirrel but if one leaves then a another one replaces them.. I have done some exclusion work but they just start working on other parts of the house. They have observed them climbing up the side of the house. I am wondering if there is anything that I can spray on the siding that will deter the squirrels from chewing on it. Ive used Capsaicin before in small areas. However we are talking about a whole house. Do you think that castor oil (like what is in mole repellant) will work? The customer is desperate for a solution I appreciate any feedback that you can give me on this.

Thank you,
