Thoughts from the PeeMan: Opportunity

Excerpts from the book “Thoughts for my Daughters” written by The PeeMan for his daughters Erica, Laura and Emma – for more information read Thoughts from the PeeMan

Ready, Shoot, Aim!

opportunity-clipart-k13012583Embrace opportunities and go after them with full expectation of success. If it is not a good opportunity it will show its true colors soon, then you can stop, knowing you gave it a shot. An opportunity is like a flower seed, if see it as only what it is now,  you will cast it away without a thought. But if you see it for what it can be become, you do everything to help it grow. When God places an opportunity in front of us, its pretty exciting to see what he wants us to learn from it. It could be lessons of success or lessons of failure – but lessons from God, none-the-less.

 

 

Thoughts from the PeeMan: Problems

excerpt from “Thoughts for My Daughters” written for Erica, Laura and Emma

(refer to previous post Thoughts from the PeeMan for more explanation)

Problems:

problem-solution-road-sign-illustra-eps-vector_k12452682You’ve heard me say it in different ways, but always try to face any problem with clarity of thought. Of course, at first your vision is muddied by pain, emotion, fear, frustration and all the other emotions that tag along with problems. Push through all that until you can ask yourself what you know and what you don’t know about the problem, and break it down into its smallest components– remembering all the while that God is with you all the way. That is why problems are often opportunities in disguise. Seek God’s wisdom, apply the gifts and talents he has given you and act on each small piece of the problem.  The solution will build from those pieces.

Thoughts from the PeeMan

thinking

The PeeMan has been told by those who know about things like this, that it is important to have a never-ending flow of good fresh content on your blog. The PeeMan is told people really like that. Even though he can’t quite figure out why people like it, the PeeMan is not going to argue about it. It seems to be settled science in the age of social media.  So over the weeks ahead, the PeeMan is going to share with you excerpts of a book he wrote in 2015 entitled “Thoughts For My Daughters”. The PeeMan has  daughters: Erica, Laura and Emma – and all have played key rolls in building, growing and operating the Pee business!  As you will see, the PeeMan’s thoughts and observations are heavily influenced by his Christian faith… so you can’t say he didn’t warn you! Here are some of the topics that the PeeMan will be covering:

Opportunity, Anxiety, Over-Thinking, Church Attendance, Pain, Communication, Patriotism, Planning, Confidence, Problems, Conflict, Question Inflection, Reaction To Others, Disagreements, Risk, End of Knowledge, Second Guessing, Failure, Self Employment, Faith, Self-Management, Fun & Humor, Giving, Solutions, Goals, Strength, Invest-Divest, Stupidity, Leadership, Success, Listening, Teaching, Tolerance, Love, Trust, Maps, Understanding Scripture, Money, Wisdom, Words, Nature, Work, World View, Nehemiah Method, Worry

Spiders Creeping You Out? Finally A Natural Solution.

multi-spider-silhouette-backgroundSpiders – you either automatically think of Charlotte’s Web and appreciate their beauty and their innate ability to create intricate webs or your mind flashes to scenes from Arachnaphobia and you run away screaming in disgust. There really is no neutral ground. If you are in the first category, then this article is not for you. You go enjoy the dark corners filled with webs, the gigantic arachnids living under your deck or dock and the occasional eight legged arthropod that wants to join you in the shower.

For the rest of you(and me), living in fear of the next unexpected spider encounter in your home or outside recreational area, there is finally a solution. What I love about this particular product is that it is natural, safe for use around pets and only needs to be applied weekly. NEW SpiderGuard from the makers of PredatorPee is one of the additions in our new line of insect products. And no, they are not urine products, so no fear about making your kitchen smell like a bobcat or wolf marked its territory.

The unique formula in SpiderGuard takes advantage of the special bristles spiders have on their legs that allow them to smell and “taste.” They just don’t like it and they want to get far away!

SpiderGuard is an all-natural, effective way to get rid of spiders for good. Just spray the areas where you don’t want them once a week until your spider problem is gone. This all-natural spider repellent spray is safe for use inside and outside and will not harm pets. You can use SpiderGuard in attics, basements, sheds, decks, spider-guarddocks, boats, RVs, bathrooms and anywhere else you don’t want spiders.

I took some with me camping recently at Peaks Kenny State Park and sprayed it underneath the wooden picnic table. I enjoyed a week free from daddy long legs crawling on me during supper. Plus, unlike some of our other products, it smells great too. Try some out, you won’t be disappointed.  100% PeeMan Approved!

Stop Deer Flies Now!

deerflyI can’t tell you how many times I have been working on a project outside in the summer months, focused and sweaty when all of a sudden I feel that jabbing, stinging pain that only a deer fly can produce. Immediately, the site swells up and unless I happened to be quick enough to swat it mid bite, it will be back …again and again!

But you don’t have to take my personal experience as the only evidence of how miserable these biting flies can be . . .

“The bites of female . . . deer flies are painful and, if numerous enough, can disrupt recreational activities and even the harvesting of some agricultural crops. Their mouthparts include two pairs of cutting “blades” that lacerate skin and cause flow of blood out of the wound, which females lap up with a sponge-like mouthpart. Males have similar, but much weaker mouthparts. They are not capable of biting and do not feed on blood.” https://extension.entm.purdue.edu/publichealth/insects/tabanid.html

Don’t just take my word for it . . . the proof is in the pudding(or the video)as they say.

So, what to do about this problem? Traditional repellents like those containing DEET just don’t do the job. Deer flies, unlike mosquitoes, are not just attracted by CO2 but they are also enticed by movement, size, shape and dark color. This pretty much means that a moving human outside is a perfect target. Thankfully, The PeeMan has an answer! NEW DeerFly Stoppers make it possible for hikers, runners, boaters, bikers, those who work outdoors to beat the biting nuisances at their own game. Simply apply one of the adhesive strips to the back of a hat and you’re good to go. The flies can’t resist the flesh-colored deer fly trap – they land, they’re stuck, they’re done.

Don’t let deer flies ruin your summer outdoor recreation and work. Get some DeerFly Stoppers now. I know I will be using them this summer and my wife will be sure to use them on her vacation running in the woods of Maine.

Does Coyote Urine Really Work?

Thirty-five years ago the PeeMan probably would have asked the same question. But since 1986, our PredatorPee customers have answered with a resounding yes! Does it work 100% of the time? No. But remember we are dealing with wild animals so a lot of variables come into play. Out of curiosity, the PeeMan looked back over the last 10 years since we started keeping track of things in more detail. It was interesting. We of course offer our 100% “We Make it Work or We make it Right” Guarantee so or records keep track of  how many people we refunded money to over the last 10 years.guarantee4141

Over the last 10 years, we have averaged a 1.47% return rate. That means that PredatorPee worked 98.53% of the time.  This is how a return would come about; if someone found Coyote urine or one of our other urines not working, we would first try to assist them by sending them another urine “flavor” to try at no charge, and if that still didn’t work, we refund all of their money. So we sent refunds to 1.47% of our customers.

We don’t know anyone else that offers the kind of guarantee that we do. But it is the kind of guarantee the PeeMan would like to have when he buys stuff. We wanted our customers to know that when they buy from us, we will do everything we can to solve their pest problem or we will just simply make it right.

In the wild animals behavior is largely motivated by survival. The need to eat, to avoid predators and to find a mate. The sense of smell is the communication vehicle that helps an animal make decisions. For example is an animal’s hunger so extreme, will it risk encountering a predator in order to get the food it needs to survive? Things like that may or may not be going on in your backyard, so predicting an animal’s response to Predator Pee is not always a 100% sure thing….but it is a 98.53% sure thing.

That’s why we have our 100% “We Make it Work or We make it Right” Guarantee, after all, if a product worked every single time without fail, why would you need a guarantee?

Thanks for visiting our website and the PeeMan would love to have you as a customer.

 

How to Get Rid of Wild Pigs?

The PeeMan has a Few Thoughts on that….and so do our Customers!

“I am a returning customer. Your product worked really, really well for me last summer and the javelinas are back now …. time to restock! Thanks for the help…”
Stephanie – Mayer, AZ

“My housemate goes online and discovers the PredatorPee.com website. The website says that mountain lion pee is guaranteed to drive off javelinas, as well as wild boar. I immediately place an order online….Several months later, I can report that no plant-plundering pigs have returned to my property. Elated with success!”

Gabriela – Hawaii

From Japan to Spain to Mexico and the USA, wild pigs are a huge problem. They haven’t made it to Maine where the PeeMan lives and from what he hears from our customers, he’s awful glad about that! Those nasty, ugly critters are just plain bad news!

But, thankfully they have a predator that they fear. The mountain lion, known by different names in different places like cougar and panther, is the natural predator of wild hogs.  Use PredatorPee® Mountain Lion Pee to repel wild pigs, feral hogs and javelina. The scent of mountain lion urine alerts these wild pigs and hogs that danger is near. Their instinctive reaction is to flee the danger. When you use PredatorPee® Mountain lion Pee liquid 100%  mountain lion urine, you are putting nature’s warning system to work for you. Use in conjunction with our ScentTags or 33Day Dispensers to create a scent barrier that keeps the javelina and wild hogs out!

Just in case those pigs start thinking about moving north, the PeeMan is considering setting up a giant mountain lionpee-rimeter down near the Kittery Bridge on the New Hampshire border to keep those critters outta Maine!
