Long Lasting Deer and Rabbit Repellent
by Susan Littlefield
Deer and rabbits are some of the hardest garden pests to deal with. They are voracious, will happily chomp on all kinds of plants and are tough to exclude from garden areas. There are a number of repellent products on the market, but they generally lose potency quickly when exposed to sun and rain and need to be continually renewed to maintain their effectiveness.
Now Orcon makes life easier for gardeners with its Plant Pro-tec Deer and Rabbit Repellent. This all natural, organic repellent has a patented slow-release system that allows one application to remain potent for 6 to 8 months. The active ingredient, concentrated garlic juice, is housed inside a plastic container that allows the repelling vapors to escape, but remain unaffected by rain or moisture and inaccessible to children and pets. The container itself will degrade naturally within 24 months.
Recently the National Home Gardening Club awarded its Seal of Approval to this product. Their seal is awarded to products that are tested and recommended by their members nation-wide. Plant Pro-tec Deer and Rabbit Repellent received a 94% approval rating. Organic, slow-release gopher and mole, and dog and cat repellents are also available.
