Plant Pro-Tec Dog and Cat Repellent (PP-RDC12) is the ideal solution that will help keep animals like cats and dogs from making a mess on and around flowers, shrubs, and lawns. It uses a special combination of natural ingredients such as garlic oil, lemon-grass, citronella, and cinnamon which are proven to repel dogs and cats effectively. The repelling odor may last for 6-8 months and effective even if it rains. It's very easy to use, simply break the barrier to activate, then attach it to a plant, edge of a garden, flower or fence with the clip. Product comes with 12 repellents per bag.
The Repelling Formulation is based on natural oils that are known to repel dogs and cats. What makes Plant Pro-Tec Dog & Cat Repellents unique is their longevity and ease of use.
Releasing the Repelling Odor
The barrier that contains the repelling odor during storage and transport must be broken before the Repellent is attached to a plant or fence. The barrier is broken with a specially designed metal tool (see diagram). A tool is included in each Bag.
Repelling Odor is evident for 6 to 8 months
Once the barrier is broken, the repelling odor will be evident for 6 to 8 months. The longevity of Plant Pro-Tec Repellents is what makes our product unique. The repelling odor lasts a long time because of the cone on the inside of the Repellent. The cone is permeable to the repelling odor but is impermeable to air. In other words, the cone allows the repelling odor out but prevents oxidation of the compounds that make up the repelling odor. Most animals’ sense of smell is greater than ours.
Installing Plant Pro-Tec Repellents
Outdoors, once the barrier is broken, the Repellent can be clipped to an individual plant, clipped at the outer edge of a garden, flower, or shrubbery bed, or clipped on a fence. Repellents can be laid on the ground. Repellents can be clipped to grass at the edge of the lawn. The Repellents should be clipped as close to the soil as practical. The number of Repellents to use depends on the strength of the animal’s habits. For a perimeter, Repellents should be clipped about 4 feet apart, or closer where necessary. Indoors, once the barrier is broken Repellents can be put in areas where dogs or cats are making messes. We recommend that some Repellents be kept in reserve in case the repelling Odor needs to be intensified. Although the Plant Pro-Tec Repellent has a rain shield, we recommend that Repellents be clipped on sideways or upside down to ensure no water gets in. If water gets into the Repellent, it will prevent the repelling odor from escaping. No repelling odor, no repellency! Because of the cone, the formulation can not leak out.
Aversive conditioning occurs when animals associate the repelling odor with the device. Because of aversive conditioning the animal may stay away for time even after the odor is gone.
Storage & Disposal of Plant Pro-Tec Repellents
Store Repellents in a cool, dry place inaccessible to children and pets. The shelf life of Repellents with the barrier unbroken should be one or more years. To dispose of used or unused Repellents, wrap them in newspaper and discard in trash.
Put stakes in to ground leaving 1 inch above ground level so lawnmower would nor cut into them. We have not had any rain in a month so we cant judge effectiveness length until then, but so far so good for keeping away dogs.
