Which repellents actually work?

“…Studies investigating trends in efficacy of deer repellents indicate that of the 20 products tested, repellents with active ingredients that emitted sulfurous odors i.e.: bloodmeal or egg solids, generally provided the best results…”

“…Products that contained active ingredients that cause pain/irritation (capsaicin, allyl isothiocyanate) or illness (thiram) were less effective…”

“…Repellents that were applied to plant surfaces were generally more effective than capsules or other devices that produced an odor intended to protect a specific area.”

The Plantskydd Story

Plantskydd is Swedish for ‘plant-protection’ and was developed in Sweden (1991) in response to commercial forest plantations being decimated by deer, moose and rabbits.

The forest industry needed an animal repellent that could last through severe winter weather, and also meet Sweden’s strict environmental laws.

Plantskydd’s effectiveness as a long-lasting animal browse repellent was substantiated in Field Trials (1991-1994) and the results were published in The Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research.

Most Tested

Since 1994, successful commercial applications by leading nurseries, forest companies and professional growers in the United States and Canada have confirmed

Plantskydd’s effectiveness protecting: flowers, ornamental shrubs, seedlings, trees and broadleaf plants from damage by deer, elk, moose, rabbits, hares, voles, squirrels, opossum, and mountain beaver. www.plantskydd.com/fieldtrials.html

Why does Plantskydd work so well?

By emitting odor animals associate with predator activity, Plantskydd stimulates a fear-based response which will have them looking elsewhere to dine. Research has proven this to be more effective than other repellent systems, where the animals need to taste treated plants before being repelled. Plantskydd’s long-term effectiveness is attributable to its tenacity in sticking to plants, even under severe snow/rainfall conditions.
