1. Why are Plant Pro-Tec Repellents effective? The repelling formulation in Plant Pro-Tec Repellents is based on long known data that the garlic odor repels animals. Our product contains a strong, long lasting garlic odor that discourages animals from feeding on or around treated plants (back to top)

2. Why are Plant Pro-Tec Repellents long lasting? The garlic odor from an activated Plant Pro-Tec Repellent is evident for 6 to 8 months, a whole growing season! The garlic odor lasts a long time for two reason: 1) The garlic odor is from concentrated garlic oil - one ounce of the garlic oil is equivalent to 200 pounds of fresh garlic! 2) We have created a slow release system. Sulfur compounds give the garlic its repelling odor, and if exposed to air, sulfur compounds oxidize. As oxidation occurs, the garlic odor dissipates. It is the same as watching an exposed apple core turn red with rust as it oxidizes. We prevent oxidation of the sulfur compounds by sealing out air with a plastic cone (See cross section diagram at left). The cone, however, allows the garlic odor to slowly permeate through. Without the cone the garlic odor would be evident for 1 to 2 months. With the cone the garlic odor is evident for 6 to 8 months, a whole growing season! Another reason the repelling garlic odor is long lasting is that the formulation is not affected by rain or irrigation water. Although a Plant Pro-Tec repellent has a rain-shield, we still recommend that Repellents be clipped on sideways to prevent water form getting in. Water cannot dilute the formulation, but it can create a barrier which prevents the garlic odor from escaping. No repelling odor, no repellency! Another question that we often get is ‘Why can’t I spray garlic juice or hang garlic cloves on my plants?’ The answer is that you can, but the garlic odor will be gone in several days because of the oxidation of the sulfur compounds that give the garlic its repelling odor.

3. How are Plant Pro-Tec Repellents used? For complete instructions, please see the Directions page. (back to top)

4. Why are Plant Pro-Tec Repellents economical? Plant Pro-Tec Repellents are economical because only one application is necessary to last a whole growing season. Also, with a shelf life of one or more years, any Repellents not used this year will still be effective next year. (back to top)

5. Will my yard smell of garlic? The honest answer is that if you smell garlic at all, you will probably get hungry for Italian food. We have never received any complaints about the garlic odor. Although the garlic from a Plant Pro-Tec Repellent is not strong to most people, deer and rabbits are generally very sensitive to it. (back to top)

6. Can Plant Pro-Tec Repellents be used to protect plants in forests, vineyards, and orchards? Plant Pro-Tec Repellents are also used in forests, vineyards, and orchards. Models for these uses are dark blue and white instead of dark green and light green for the model used in lawns and gardens. The blue color stands out making it easy to keep track of where the Repellents are placed. The green color blends in with plants. For more information about using Plant Pro-Tec Repellents in forests, vineyards, and orchards, contact Dr. Jerry Walters at 1 800 572-0055. (back to top)

7. Where can I find Plant Pro-Tec Repellents You can order Plant Pro-Tec Repellents direct from us on-line or by calling our office at 1 800 572-0055. Plant Pro-Tec Repellents are also being sold in garden centers across the country. If your favorite garden center does not carry Plant Pro-Tec Repellents, provide them information and if they start carrying them, we will send you a bag of 25 Repellents at no cost . (back to top)

8. Who invented Plant Pro-Tec Repellents? Plant Pro-Tec Repellents were invented by Dr. Jerry Walters. As a Research Forester and a home owner, he kept losing research and landscape plants to deer. After trying every repellent available with poor results, he invented Plant Pro-Tec Repellents. Because Plant Pro-Tec Repellents were invented and developed with Jerry’s time and resources, a private U.S. Patent was issued. (back to top)

9. Where are Plant Pro-Tec Repellents manufactured? Plant Pro-Tec Repellents are manufactured in Redding, California. They are manufactured and packaged with the assistance of mentally and/or physically disabled men and women.(Photo) They understand the importance of a quality product and are excited about helping people protect their plants!
