Re: QUESTION: How to keep cats out of raised bed garden

Some cats and some dogs dislike the smell of moth balls. If conveniently hidden under a flat stone or brick, birds will not eat them (and be hurt)but the smell keeps some cats and some dogs away from vegetables and flower beds.
Also a good sprinkle of pepper will help.
Dogs MUST be kept away from vegetables because of serious disease that can affect humans (quistes hidatidicos in Spanish, don´t know the english name for this). Cats also because of risk of toxoplasmosis; but admitedly cats are very difficult to keep away if they want to get in.
