Well, PredatorPee has popped up in the blogosphere, and I didn’t have anything to do with it. I would however like to thank Mike for his kind words and well-written blog. Like I always say, you don’t have to take my word for it. MIKE’S BACKYARD NURSERY.
On the homefront -the snow is melting. . .slowly. I have tapped some of the trees, and the sap is running. Soon I will be boiling it down until it turns into syrup for the grandkids’ pancakes. Looking for highs close to 50 on Friday. Might have to break out the shorts and t-shirt.
Well, I would like to report that the crocuses and daffodils are in bloom and the birds are ushering in the Spring warmth, but that would be a big fat lie. We have almost a foot of snow and the Canadian wind is still blowing cold. Anyway, enough about my problems. Lets get to other peoples problems. Here is a sampling of some questions that I have been getting lately. Hope you will find this information helpful. The PeeMan
I am interested in purchasing either some coyote pee or some wolf pee. What are the scent tags made of? how close do they need to be in order to be effective ? I have 1 acre of crops as well as half acre pond. How much would I need to keep an active deer population out of my property for the summer? Thank you very much for your time.
Thanks for the questions. ScentTags are made from an absorbent felt material. You can use either CoyotePee or WolfPee. If there are coyotes in your area, go with the WolfPee. Spacing is every 10-12 feet. See this link for info on how to create an effective “pee-rimeter“. Generally speaking a 12 oz bottle and a dozen ScentTags will treat a 150 lineal feet twice.
Mr. Peeman, I am the grounds supervisor at a large government facility and we have an ongoing problem with gophers and ground squirrels in our lawns and landscape. Would your product be effective when lawn sprinklers are in operation 2 to 3 times per week? How effective and how long lasting is your product? I have about 440 acres of lawns and landscape here on center to try abating the problem.
Thanks for the email. We normally try to create a “pee-rimeter” around the property, but protecting the entire 440 acres might be a bit tough. However, since the gophers and ground squirrels use burrows and tunnels I would take a different approach. I would start by working from the hardest hit areas gradually outward by spraying the holes with either CoyotePee or FoxPee. This would cause the critters to migrate out from there and over time you could work them back to the tree line or other non-landscaped areas. Re-spraying the area every 10 days or so should do the trick. We currently are about to introduce a self-contained one-gallon pump spray container that would be just the ticket for your application.
I have a bottle of Bearpee and was wondering if it was ok to use it for scent training for my hounds?
Well, in my neck of the woods, rats are few and far between. They have plenty of places to scurry and hide outside. But, I hear for city folks and others these disgusting rodents can be quite a problem. That is why I have developed an informational page just for those of you who are hearing unwanted pitter patter of little feet in your houses. Rat Problems? Click here.
That is all I have for today. The snow is gradually disappearing and the maple trees are starting to give their sap, so I am hopeful for spring. The PeeMan
Well, I have been telling you that wolf urine is the answer for keeping those crazy coyotes away, but now the wolf pee solution has made it big time. Check out this excerpt of Krysten Ritter on Conan –
What do you know? Wolf urine is funny and useful!
