LITITZ, Pa., July 10, 2006 -- From dried blood to human hair to ammonia to soap to other stinky concoctions, frustrated homeowners are waging a David and Goliath style battle on the nuisance animals that are causing extensive damage to lawns and gardens. And for the most part, the animals have been winning – until now.
