    Q
    How long does Deer Scram last on the ground when there's no rain?
    How often should this be reapplied as a barrier in a dry climate when there is little rain? If it does rain, often times it is light. Would the product need to be reapplied then?
    A
    Deer Scram will last for 30 to 45 days per the product label.  Light rainfall actually enhances the product.  If you have a heavy rain, the product may need to be reapplied.

    Q
    New to using Deer Scram. How to spread?
    We have 98 small trees that the deer rut on. We ordered Deer Scram and want to use it to keep them away but do not know how to use. What do I put it in to spread? How wide a swath do I need? How far from the trees do I spread it?
    A

    For the first application, use Deer Scram aggressively. You will use 18 inches from a bed or drip line of a tree. You will apply an 18-20 inch perimeter barrier strip around groups, plots, beds, rows of trees, etc. every 30 days.

    Deer Scram comes with a scoop that you will use to speak the product. You will need to reapply after every heavy rainfall. Deer Scram lasts for up to 90 days in winter and works will under snow. If the snow crusts, break up and re-apply the product.

    Q
    Can Deer Scram keep the yard clear?
    Deer have taken to hanging out in a yard and deficating everywhere. I'd like to protect almost an acre. Can I sprinkle it all over the yard to keep them out? How would you cover an expansive area as opposed to a controlled area like a flower bed?
    A

    A repellent such as Deer Scram Repellent is best applied in a band around areas that you want to protect from the target animal. If you are trying to protect a large area, then you would be applying the 18 to 24 inch band around the edge of the property as directed on the product label. Typically deer repellents are used around beds of plants that the deer would be likely to eat. Keep in mind that repellents may work better at some times than others.

    For a large area, you may want to consider a more permanent means of exclusions, such as Tenax Fencing.
