When you plant vegetables, you want to feed your family, not offer an all-you-can eat buffet for rabbits, deer and other animals. Save the harvest for your table by using safe, non-toxic animal repellents. Repellents use natural ingredients to create a scent and taste barrier around plants. Choose from either a granular or liquid application.

Save Your Garden with Animal Repellents:

  1. Spread granular animal repellent evenly around the perimeter of your planting area.
  2. Or, spray liquid animal repellent liberally on and around veggies and perimeter of your vegetable garden.
  3. It’s important to reapply as often as directed on package instructions and always after a heavy rain.
