1. The repelling formulation in Plant Pro-Tec Repellents is based on long known data that sulfur compounds repel gophers and moles. We use garlic as the source of the sulfur compounds. Our product emits a strong, long lasting garlic odor that redirects animals from the treated area. (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 10 to 12 months, a whole growing season! The garlic odor lasts a long time for two reasons: 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 10 to 12 months, a whole season. (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. Can Plant Pro-Tec Repellents be used in lawns and gardens? - Plant Pro-Tec Repellents can be used wherever gopher and/or moles are a problem. The formulation that consists of natural oils does not leave the repellent until the plastic body biodegrades. (back to top)
