I got to thinking about this after talking about hot pepper spray for bugs.

 

Would spraying hot pepper bug spray on corn keep the big critters away?

 

Even if it did would you end up with hot pepper corn?

I have used hot pepper around my shop to keep the Coon away. It works for awhile but seems to loose it's strength quickly when exposed to the elements. Put some on a beam inside and it kept the birds from nesting for the entire summer.

I shouldn't need to keep them out more than a couple weeks while the corn fills out.

How big is the corn patch? We have had good luck with electric fencing, about a foot off the ground for coons.

In the picture the spots circled in black have never had any critter damage. I don't know why nothing ever gets in the spot by the road.

 

The red with stripes is where everything tried to get in. I tried an electric fence once. I think it deterred some of them, but I still had damage.

 

Coons will get in the purple sometimes.

 

We have a dog on a long cord at the blue spot between the purple and black.

 

I am hoping the spray will work so I don't have to bother with a fence.
