Provide a Line of Defense with Deer Off® Repellents

Anyone who has dealt with deer on their property knows how frustrating it can be. They forage in gardens and flowerbeds, rub their antlers against trees, bed on your lawn and cause other damage to carefully tended property in their search for food. Worse yet, deer can plague a yard at any time of year, making deterrent efforts seem like a never-ending battle. That’s why Havahart®, a leader in humane animal control solutions, recommends using Deer Off® Liquid Spray Repellents and Weatherproof Deer Repellent Stations to keep deer away.

“Deer rely heavily on their sense of smell to locate food and sense danger. To effectively protect your yard and gardens, you need to devise a repellent strategy that affects those senses,” says Carlos Medina, Assistant Marketing Manager for Havahart®. “By applying repellents featuring ingredients such as dried blood, capsaicin or putrescent egg, you can interfere with a deer’s scent and taste.”

Deer Off® Repellents use scent-based active ingredients to elicit a neurological response from deer that sends them running. Liquid spray repellents also repel by taste – by making their favorite foods taste bad, deer are discouraged from eating.

Deer Off® Ready-to-Use Sprays and Concentrated Repellents are ideal for preventing and discouraging nuisance deer from browsing particular plants on your property. Some benefits of these products are:

  • The highly-concentrated formula containing putrescent eggs imitates the scent of decaying animals and warns deer of nearby predator activity, making them flee.
  • A second ingredient layer of garlic and hot peppers creates burning flavors to make plants inedible to nuisance deer.
  • When the unique, dual-action formula dries, it is odorless to humans.
  • Weather-resistant protection lasts up to 3 months to provide season-long control.
  • OMRI Listed® for use in eco-friendly and organic gardening.

Keep in mind, it is not recommended to apply liquid repellents directly to edible plants. Instead, spray them on surrounding, non-edible plants until runoff occurs.

Deer Off® Waterproof Deer Repellent Stations offer many of the same great benefits of spray repellents, all in a weatherproof casing. Some of these benefits include:

  • Contains 100% dried blood that is easily detectable by deer, triggering their flight mechanism.
  • All-natural deer deterrent is odorless to humans.
  • The rugged housing keeps water out while allowing air to pass through to spread the repellent scent.
  • Weatherproof design provides protection from deer all season long.
  • Thin metal stakes and discreet color blend in naturally with your yard.
  • The encased active ingredient is safe for use near edible plants.

When applying repellent stations, be sure to properly space them (about 4-6 ft. apart) for full perimeter protection. Placing them too far apart may create areas of vulnerability.

“Reducing other attractants in your yard is key to ensuring that your Deer Off® repellent strategy is effective. If you protect some areas, but not others, deer may still view your property as a food source,” says Medina. “Also remove remnants of fruits and vegetables after they’ve been harvested and keep your lawn trimmed. For continued effectiveness, be sure to reapply liquid repellents periodically – especially after a heavy rainfall.”

Whether you need to protect your crops or just your lawn, Havahart® has the solutions you need to deter deer humanely and effectively.

Bonide: Control Invading Rodents This Winter

Now that the winter season has arrived, our four-legged friends (mice, that is!) are attempting to enter our homes to avoid “Old Man” winter. The Revenge® brand from Bonide® has the products to help you keep these pests, and a few others, from invading your home.

The Revenge® #48112 and #48113 Refillable Mouse Bait Stations have proven to be a highly effective and safe way to control mice. They feature a lockable child resistant bait station, which conforms to the new EPA requirements for this type of bait station. The bait station has a clear top for easy monitoring of the bait. The highly palatable bait is especially attractive to mice. The bait station can be mounted vertically or horizontally and is perfect for kitchens, garages, basements, and other typical household areas.

Included in the Revenge® brand of mouse & rat control products are the more “traditional” pieces, such as Baited Glue Trays (#47020, #47026 & #47030) and Snap Traps (#47062 & #47070). The glue trays feature superior ‘Catch & Hold’ adhesive in a low-profile tray for easy access. The snap traps have a unique and effective design. Most snap traps do not allow for the mouse or rat to “commit” to the trap. Without the “commitment”, the mouse or rat can easily escape the trap. The large bait pedals and ‘V-hook’ trap set ensure that the mouse or rat “commits” entirely to the trap with NO ESCAPE!!

Continuing to prove to be a top-seller is the highly effective Revenge® EZ-Set Traps (#47080 & #47090). These specially designed traps are 100% effective at catching mice and rats! The rodent must “commit” for the trap to trigger. Once triggered, there is NO ESCAPE from the trap. The extra large bait wells allow for the use of special “treats” to attract the mouse or rat to the trap. The EZ-Set Traps are simple to set and can be reused if need be. This highly effective trap should definitely be a part of your rodenticide offering.

Consumers who don’t want to deal with “dead” mice have a natural alternative in Bonide’s® Mouse Magic product. Mouse Magic is a blend of essential oils that trigger the “escape/avoidance” behavior in mice, driving them from homes, garden sheds, cabinets, gas grills, lawn mowers and more. They do not like it and go elsewhere. Mouse Magic is available in convenient “place pack” pouches, which treat a standard size room for up to 45 days. Use these “place packs” wherever mice enter, feed or nest. People and pet safe, Mouse Magic is available in a 4-pack box or an economical 12-pack re-sealable bag.

In 2016, Bonide Rat Magic® was added to the line-up of repellent products. Rat Magic® Rodent Repellent is the perfect sister product to the highly successful Mouse Magic repellent. Rat Magic® is an all-natural, granular repellent, which is highly effective in repelling not only rats, but also chipmunks and squirrels. This biodegradable, outdoor use product is a unique combination of essential oils that naturally repels for up to 2 weeks. The 5 lb. shaker container treats up to 1000 square feet. It is People and Pet safe and does an effective job at repelling pesky squirrels that feast at a bird feeder, without repelling the birds!

NOW is the time for controlling these unwanted pests. The Revenge® brand from Bonide®, has the products available to help your customers control and prevent these creatures from entering their homes. Bonide’s® highly-effective Mouse Magic and Rat Magic® products give the consumer a “natural” choice in controlling their “4-legged” pest problem. The rodenticide products from Revenge® and Bonide® are available by the case pack or in pre-determined assortments. The assortments are enhanced with free goods to maximize your profits within this category.

See your Arett Sales representative or a Bonide sales representative now to review these products and assortments, so you can take advantage of what your customers are looking for at this time of year.

Mosquito Pest Alert

Mosquitoes can cause more harm to humans than any other group of insects. Mosquitoes not only inflict a painful bite, but they can transmit organisms which cause human diseases such as malaria, encephalitis, West Nile, and the Zika virus.

Zika is a disease caused by the Zika virus and is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito. The most common symptoms of Zika include fever, rash, joint pain or conjunctivitis (red eyes).
Mosquitoes are a midge-like fly with tube-like mouth parts used to pierce the hosts’ skin to consume blood. Mosquito saliva often causes an irritating rash. However, the real danger mosquitoes pose is the role they play as carriers of serious disease such as Zika and West Nile.

Mosquitoes hatch from eggs and they start out as swimming larvae. Adults will lay eggs in stagnant or slow-moving water, or on moist soil or leaf litter in wet areas. The best way to keep safe is to eliminate mosquito breeding areas. Drain unnecessary containers or any standing water on your property; keep gutters clean and unclogged. Use a larvicide such as Bonide’s WSPs to kill larvae where it is not possible to drain water, or to treat ornamental ponds or bird baths. Control adult mosquitoes by treating lawns, shrubs, or wooded areas using Bonide’s liquid Mosquito Beater sprays or fogger.
