I recently watched a video about Sepp Holzers' Bone sauce, unfortunately there aren't many threads or topics about this. According to the video it sounds like it could be a universal insect repellent. So, here are a couple of questions. 1. If you were to slather some on a fruit tree, would it repel the pesky insects. But, would it repel birds. 2. Could it repel the emerald ash borer, or EAB if you were to put it on the trunk of an ash tree, or coppice. And finally, could it keep raccoon away. I'm just curious because I couldn't find anything about this, and anything would be really helpful.
