Plantskydd Deer Repellent was initially developed in Sweden in 1991 in response to commercial forest plantations being decimated by plant eating animals. The forest industry needed an animal repellent that could last through severe weather and meet Sweden's strict environmental laws. 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. The Swedish name for the product "Plantskydd" translates as "Plant Protection".
Plantskydd Deer and Animal Repellent works by emitting an odor that animals associate with predator activity, repelling the animal before it nibbles on plants. Plantskydd stimulates a fear-based response which will have deer, elk, moose, opossum, and rabbits looking to dine somewhere other than your garden or plantation. The odor is not unpleasant to the applicator. Research has proven that odor-based repellents are more effective than other repellent systems (e.g. 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 Deer and Animal Repellent is the deterrent of choice for many 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. Nurseries and landscapers find Plantskydd Deer Repellent to be equally effective in protecting flowers, shrubs, and ornamentals.
