Frequently Asked Questions

1) How is Shake-Away affected by rain?

ANSWER: Light or moderate rain will not affect the Shake-Away granules but the product should be reapplied after heavy, washout rains. The Shake-Away 90-day packs are not affected by any weather conditions, including rain or snow, as they are completely weather-proof.

2) How lightly or heavily do I need to apply the Shake-Away granules?

ANSWER: You only need to apply Shake-Away lightly around the areas you want to protect. Heavier applications do not make the product work better; you need to be consistent with your applications. Twice a week for the first two to three weeks is recommended.

3) Should I apply the Shake-Away granules around the perimeter of my yard to keep all animals out?

ANSWER: You only apply Shake-Away around the specific area where the animals are doing damage. For example, if an animal is eating your flowers in one of your gardens, that is the area you want to focus on treating.

4) Will Shake-Away attract coyotes or foxes to my yard?

ANSWER: No. If you already have coyotes or foxes coming into your yard, they will smell the product out of curiosity, but it will not bring in animals that are not already in your area.

5) Will Shake-Away hurt my children, pets or plants?

ANSWER: No, Shake-Away is 100% natural and non-toxic.

6) How will my dog react to Shake-Away when applied?

ANSWER: Your dog may be curious and smell the product after the first few applications, but after that they usually will ignore it.

7) How do you collect the coyote and fox urine?

ANSWER: The animals are never touched during the collection process. When the animals eliminate naturally the urine is collected on tapered floors into drains. All animals are treated very well by a trained staff.

The Predator

The red fox is the most common, land-based predator of cottontail rabbits throughout its range. Rabbits avoid foxes' “core” areas when setting up their patterns to feed and raise their young. Foxes' “core areas” are where these cagey predators spend the bulk of their time and, as you would expect, these areas contain an increased predator odor presence.

The Product

Shake-Away provides an incredibly easy way to apply time-released, urine-impregnated granules in a fashion that simulates this “core” area. These granules are composed of a porous, swellable, inorganic mineral that is impervious to weather, and rainfall in particular. By applying the product as directed--twice a week for the first 2 weeks and twice a month thereafter for maintenance--the Fox Urine Granule product alters rabbit patterns and the effect is maintained for as long as the customer chooses to continue their maintenance.

The Difference between Shake-Away and Other Products

Over time, rabbits and other prey animals often get used to the myriad of foul odor- and taste-based products on the market today.  But all prey animals, and rabbits in particular,never overcome their instinct of fear as it pertains to the perception of the presence of their primary predators.

The best way to understand the concept is to visualize the natural setting of both the rabbit and the fox. A red fox pair establishes a den to raise young and to provide shelter for the group. Fox odors accumulate in this area rather quickly and the prey animals within a radius of it either alter their patterns or are consumed. Cottontail rabbits, with their highly evolved sense of smell, alter their patterns in short order, and keep their distance from that particular area for as long as the fox family maintains that den location.

Shake-Away offers our customers multiple sizes of this easy-to-use organic repellent to provide the best value possible for a particular situation. Simply applying a perimeter of our no-mess granules as directed or simply applying to hotspots will provide our customers with the results they expect from a superior repellent product. Create your predator illusion today with Shake-Away Fox Granules!

    Save your money

    By Greg on 04/26/2016

    I bought a five pound canister of Shake Away granules to deter rabbits. The day after I applied it, the rabbits were sitting on top of the granules and defecating. It had no...ZERO....effect on the rabbits. The "fox urine" thing is a theory only. Save your money.

    Critters in the Attic

    By S. on 01/20/2016

    I tried this product last year on some critters that were in the attic. I followed the instructions and sprinkled the granules after cleaning the area and making sure there were no open area where they could get in. The sounds stopped for approximately 6 months and they seem to have found another way in. For that reason, I'd rate it 3 stars. I expected it to be a permanent solution.

    Since we have been using this product, there is no longer a possum roaming around the yard. A cat that used to come has also disappeared. Great product.
