|Plantskydd? Deer Repellent |
Plantskydd? Deer Repellent is the browse deterrent of choice for leading North American forest companies who use it to successfully prevent plantation damage by deer, rabbits, elk and moose to millions of conifer and hardwood trees, including: cedar, spruce, fir, pine, alder, birch, larch, and poplar species. Many customers have provided positive anecdotal feedback as to the effectiveness of Plantskydd in protecting plants against other herbivores (plant eating mammals).
Nurseries and landscapers find Plantskydd? Deer Repellent to be equally effective in protecting flowers, shrubs, and ornamentals.
What makes it effective?
Plantskydd? Deer Repellent works by emitting an odor that animals associate with predator activity, repelling the animal before it nibbles on plants. The odor is not unpleasant to the applicator.
Research has proven that odor-based repellents are more effective than other repellent systems - where the animal needs to taste treated plants before being repelled. Once animals are attracted to an area and begin feeding, it is more difficult to discourage them from returning. Plantskydd stimulates a fear-based response which will have them looking for somewhere else to dine. Which repellents actually work?
Plantskydd's long-term effectiveness is attributable to the tenacity of its 100% natural, vegetable oil binder in sticking to plants, even under severe snow/rainfall conditions: up to 6 months over winter, 3-4 months in summer.
