Animal Repellents

Using Animal Repellent

Animal repellents are meant to deter the target animal from a desired area, but will not kill or permanently injure them. The active ingredients in repellents are generally made from something that the animal has a natural aversion to, and will try to avoid it at all costs. Populations and food sources are factors in the effectiveness of the repellent. It is important to alternate animal repellents over time because the targeted pest can build up a resistance or tolerance to the active ingredients in the repellent if they are continually exposed to it. There are three main types of repellents including odorous, contact, and taste.

Animal Repellents for different climates

  • Warm Climates: Odor repellents tend to be the most effective.
  • Cold Climates: Taste repellents work best.
  • All Climates: Contact repellents work well in any temperature but may not be the best repellent for all types of animals.

The majority of repellents we sell are bio-repellents, meaning they are made from natural ingredients and are safer for the environment, pets, and people.

Which Animal Repellent should I use?

  • Bonide products can be used most anywhere around homes, structures, fence lines, flower beds and vegetable gardens. They are effective in deterring deer, rabbits, gophers, moles, rats, mice, skunks, opossums, squirrels, and even cats or dogs. Bonide products are produced from natural ingredients and are sold as granules and sprays. They are safe for use around pets and children. Always check the label and apply as directed.

  • DeTour is a bio-repellent that is effective in keeping out rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and other rodents. DeTour is a contact repellent causing the pest to leave the area immediately, often taking the repellent back to the nest making it unlivable for the animal. The active ingredient is white pepper and it is mixed with a food-based grease that sticks to rodents. Although it is non-toxic, DeTour irritates the skin and the senses. As this is a contact repellent, it must be applied in areas where the pest travels.

  • Dr. T’s products are fast acting and long lasting EPA registered repellents. Snake-A-Way is composed of cinnamon and clove oils that disrupt a snake’s sensory organs and causes confusion. The snake will immediately leave. Snake-A-Way is most effective when applied in the fall while snakes are looking for places to hibernate and in the spring when snakes are out and about.

  • Mole Out can be purchased in a liquid spray or granules and is produced from natural oils that coat the moles food and upset the stomach.

  • PiGNX is a bio-repellent especially formulated for pigeons. It is EPA registered with an active ingredient of capsaicin or hot peppers. It affects the nerve endings and is long-lasting.

  • 4 The Birds is a non-toxic sticky liquid repellent for pigeons and starlings.
