This product is packaged in convenient scent packs that can be easily placed where needed. This is particularly helpful for those difficult to reach areas like drop ceilings and behind large appliances, and in preventing infestation of stored pet food and birdseed. This product also masks scent trails, which helps prevent reinfestation.
To apply: Simply distribute the scent packs around any area rodents hide, feed or congregate. For attics, staple scent packs to rafters. Pay particular attention to areas around walls and other surfaces that may serve as runways, to any areas of potential entry, and to potential nesting areas.
Begin treatment with one scent pack per average sized room. Increase the number of scent packs, as needed, until desired results are achieved. Heavier infestations may require more scent packs per room. While this product contains natural essential oils, and its odor is very pleasant, too many scent packs in a small area can be over[powering. Should this occur, simply reduce the number of scent packs used.
After the rodents have left the indoor areas, keep them from returning by creating a Perimeter/Barrier with the scent packs. Block all points of reentry and place acent packs at all entry points and around structure.
To repel squirrels from bird feeders, scatter scent packs around the base of the feeder, and at/on the feeder itself by stapling or hanging the scent pack with a twist-tie, string or staples to the feeder.
NOTE: Effective rodent control begins with good cultural practices such as exclusion and sanitation. To keep rodents out of structures and premises, be sure all points of entry are sealed, including attics and basements. Also be sure all sources of food are secured, including animal feed, bird food, pet food, and table refuse. Severe infestations should be cleaned out prior to using this product. Revenge Rat Traps may be helpful in this regard. Do not apply to furniture, painted surfaces or fine finishes without testing on a small inconspicuous area first.
I bought this item with understanding that they would work outside but apparently they don't. I think your description mentioned the word garden, a key word for me. However they have no affect on the chipmunks that I am having a problem with. Maybe they work in doors which I feel should have been specified in the description, unless I overlooked it.
