My neighbour told me that she saw a squirrel frantically scratching it's eyes after getting hot pepper in them from its hands. :(

It's painful, but it does wear off and doesn't leave permanent damage. I've done that myself after working with hot peppers.

Hot pepper oils in eyes (and other places that are sensitive, no more info than that); me too. That's where I got the idea from. Very unpleasant, but gone in about 15 minutes.

Unfortunately, me moved and have the tree no more but gained a mango tree, which sadly we gave pretty much every one of them away because I am allergic, mouth and tongue go numb and tingly whenever I eat anything with mango. Also, I itch to death when the pollen touches me I learned, which is bad since it's in the backyard where I take the pug puppies out. Had to start wearing shoes because my feet and ankles were driving me crazy with the itching. The REALLY bad thing about it is I do love the taste of ripe mangos, they just don't love me. We also had the squirrels, just not as bad as with the avos.

I've done that a few times myself, and with the capsaicin ointment for sore joints as well. That stuff stays on the skin for a LONG time. You can wash your hands well after application, but if you forget and touch (rub) your joint (knees in my case), then touch your eyes, lips, etc, OH BABY look out!

I should buy some more Noxzema. The first time it happened, the pain was so bad I called my doctor's office and they suggested rubbing my hands with Noxzema. It worked!

Eating avocado - are you supposed to mix it with something or cook it from raw?

I did not know that. Haven't used Noxema since I was in high school, a few eons ago.

I predict the sales of Noxema are going to hit the roof because of pepper loving DC Members.

I worked at and visited properties where the lessee had a 30 year old avocado tree growing next to small rear house. An avocado tree growing outside their kitchen window, nice!

In my suburban setting, with close together properties, just one avocado tree is planted, almost for decorative purposes, like the similar looking magnolia tree, which is also nice to look at.

With all the bored pet cats around the neighborhood, I don't see squirrels or any other vermin eating the avocados, maybe so in a more suburban-rural type setting.

You people are a treasure, empathy on what might relieve mr.squirrel when he gets it in his eyes.

My step-daughter got me hooked on avacados. I like guacamole, but can eat it cubed with some lime juice. When we make guacomole we mix in some sour cream if we have it on hand. Never tried mayo.

Each time I go to the store I buy 1 avacado, so I always have one ripening on the counter so I can have one every few days. I have 2 right now. Not ripe yet.
