is an animal repellent developed in Sweden,
MADE IN THE USA.
It is made from
100% natural ingredients:
dried blood (porcine and/or bovine), and vegetable oils.
Proven effective against
deer, elk, moose and rabbits.
Late summer and fall applications are recommended to prevent critters from forming the habit of going to your place for a meal of fresh fruit and chewing the bark throughout the winter.
Is Plantskydd safe to use?
Plantskydd contains no synthetic additives, is non-toxic and is not harmful to animals or the environment when used as directed.
The 'active' ingredient is dried blood (porcine and/or bovine) recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an environmentally safe ingredient and is exempt from EPA Pesticide Registration. It even acts as a fertilizer high in nitrogen for the plants to use.
Normal precautions: wash hands after use; wash fruit and veggies before eating; do not ingest powder or liquid solution. Keep out of reach of children and pets
How does it work?
Animals avoid plants before they bite not after! Plantskydd repels by emitting an odor that browsing animals associate with predator activity. The odor is not unpleasant to applicators or planters.
Proven* effective in extensive field trials against deer, elk, moose, rabbits, and opossum.
How often do I need to treat my plants and trees?
- Treat plants before browse begins (spring or fall).
- Frequency of application is dependent upon the growth rate of the plant. Always treat new growth until the plant has reached full size or leaf-out.
- Plantskydd lasts up to 6 months over-winter on dormant plants and up to 4 months during the active growing season.
- Ideally, Plantskydd® is applied in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not as strong.
- IMPORTANT: Apply solution on dry plants and allow to dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours before rain or watering.
Any advice for protecting fruit trees?
If you're planting out young whips of fruit trees, try coating the whip using a paint brush and a thick solution of Plantskydd (We recommend soluble powder concentrate follow directions on label). If subject to spring or summer browse, spray trees when the leaves have formed.
Anything in my landscape I should not treat with Plantskydd?
We suggest you test samples of sensitive plants before treating large numbers. If the leaves curl on test plants, rinse with a fine spray of water and dilute Plantskydd further (e.g. 1 pkg to 2-3 gallons water) prior to re-applying. Plantskydd will darken leaves temporarily they return to their normal color in a couple of days.
For aesthetic reasons, use on very fuzzy leaves like Santolina, Lambs Ears and Lavender is not recommended. Fortunately, these plants are usually not preferred by our furry friends
