Cougar Cheese Empty Can Ideas

Cougar Scarecrow

Dear WSU Creamery:

My use for empty cheese tins has worked very well for me here in New Mexico and I think it would in any part of the country. I drill (or use a nail & hammer) a hole on opposite sides of each tin and pass a cord or thin rope through, knotting after each one to space the cans out. I string 4-6 cans together to make each arm of my scarecrows to assist in preventing crows and quails from attacking my garden. The reflection of the sun and movement from the wind of the cans has really kept my garden happy.
