I am not normally a friend of the Myth-Busters show, but the other day they tested methods of keeping bears out of garbage cans. Most things did not work, as we all know very well. One thing though promised success: Cayenne Pepper or Chili Powder.

I decided to try that out this spring. I got myself some Cayenne Pepper and starting spreading the powder over the garbage can every time I took some out. This worked quite well for the first few weeks - until it started raining.
