Features & Directions
Plant Pro-Tec Deer & Rabbit Repellents may be used to discourage browsing of trees, shrubs, flowers, and garden plants..
The Repelling Formulation is based on long known data that the sulfur compounds from garlic repel deer and rabbits. What makes Plant Pro-Tec Deer & Rabbit Repellents unique is their longevity and ease of use.
Releasing the Repelling Odor - The barrier that contains the Repelling odor during storage and transport must be broken before the Repellent is attached to a plant or fence. The barrier is broken with a specially designed metal tool (see diagram). A tool is included in each Bag.
Repelling Odor is evident
for 6 to 8 months - Once the barrier is broken, the repelling odor will be evident for 6 to 8 months. The longevity of Plant Pro-Tec Repellents is what makes our product unique. The repelling odor lasts a long time because of the cone on the inside of the Repellent. The cone is permeable to the repelling odor but is impermeable to air. In other words, the cone allows the repelling odor out but prevents oxidation of the compounds that make up the repelling odor. Most animals’ sense of smell is greater than ours.
Installing Plant Pro-Tec Repellents - Once the barrier is broken, the Repellent can be clipped to an individual plant, clipped at the outer edge of a garden, flower, or shrubbery bed, or clipped on a fence. Repellents can be laid on the ground. Repellents can be clipped to grass at the edge of the lawn. The Repellents should be clipped as close to the soil as practical. The number of Repellents to use depends on the strength of the animal’s habits. For a perimeter, Repellents should be clipped about 4 feet apart, or closer where necessary. We recommend that
some Repellents be kept in reserve in case the
repelling Odor needs to be intensified.
Although the Plant Pro-Tec Repellent
has a rain shield, we recommend that
Repellents be clipped on sideways or
upside down to ensure no water gets in.
If water gets into the Repellent, it will
prevent the repelling odor from escaping.
No repelling odor, no repellency! Because
of the cone, the formulation can not leak out.
Aversive Conditioning - Aversive conditioning
occurs when animals associate the repelling
odor with the device. Because of aversive conditioning the animal may stay away for a time even after the odor is gone.
Storage & Disposal of Plant Pro-Tec Repellents - Store Repellents in a cool, dry place inaccessible to children and pets. The shelf life of Repellents with the barrier unbroken should be one or more years. To dispose of used or unused Repellents, wrap them in newspaper and discard in trash.
Plant Pro-Tec Deer & Rabbit Repellents are sold in bags of 25, 50, & 250. A metal tool for breaking the barrier is included in each bag.
