All Natural, Safe Rodent Control – 100% PredatorPee

Hello All! Well, the snowbanks around here are almost as tall as I am, and the mercury is struggling to creep above zero. If I were a rat, mouse, mole or vole, I would certainly want to be anywhere INSIDE! It appears Maine rodents aren’t alone in that – the excerpts below from recent articles highlight problems with vermin from the west coast to across the pond.

Seattle, WA — (SBWIRE) — 12/18/2013 — Pest problems are not just limited to the elimination of the pest, people have to understand that pests such as rodents and mice do a lot more damage than just being a nuisance, rats and mice are notorious for the germs and diseases they spread. Additionally, these pests can also cause structural damage to a house, especially in the attics and crawlspaces. Thus, it is essential that not only the pests are taken care of but proper measures are taken to deal with the damage they might have done to a structure. http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/attic-crawl-space-cleaning-nuisance-rodent-rats-mice-removal-414053.htm

Pest controllers have warned that Britain’s sizzling summer caused a huge increase in the number of rats and mice near our homes. The warmest, driest summer since 2006 helped Britain’s rats and mice reproduce in big numbers, according to Rentokil. And with temperatures set to plummet this month, they’ve warned homeowners that these rodents will now be seeking shelter indoors. The summer of 2013 saw lower rainfall than previous years and less flooding, allowing rodents to stay in their burrows longer and have undisturbed periods where populations grew. They now expect rats and mice to cause problems in Britain’s homes after their numbers grew ‘exponentially’. Female house mice can give birth to litters of up to 14 young, as many as ten times a year. David Cross. Head of Technical Training Academy at Rentokil UK, said: ‘Rodents like warmth, quiet and a source of food and as the first cold-snap is set to hit, it is worth following a few simple steps to avoid attracting rodents into your home.’http://uk.news.yahoo.com/pest-control-rats-mice-rodent-infestation-problem-vermin-rentokil-uk-123605184.html#FLdr6o4

Add to this that the EPA and other groups are growing increasingly opposed to the use of traditional rodenticides, and things are looking good for rodents and bad for home owners.

PeeMan’s Christmas 2013: Holiday Warmth and Nature’s Freeze

Greetings from the Frozen North Country – literally!

Let me start off by saying that we were very fortunate at Winterberry Farm not to lose power due to the Christmas week ice storm. As I write this, there are still thousands throughout the state without power. Many spent Christmas in emergency shelters or in a constant effort to keep backup generators running. Power company crews have also spent their Christmas’ out in the sub-freezing temperatures around the clock attempting to restore electricity to Mainers. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. It has been a rough week for many, and it will certainly go down in the history books.

The flip side of the havoc caused by nature’s icy fury is the sheer beauty that it left behind. The family all agree that we don’t remember a more beautiful Christmas, The brilliant sunlight reflecting off the ice laden surfaces is certainly a sight to behold.

Each year on Christmas Eve, my family gathers together and in an effort to remember the true meaning of Christmas, the children, grandchildren, and nephews put on a simple pageant and the audience acts as the choir. It is a long standing, important tradition for our family and it sets the tone for the rest of the festivities as it reminds us of the humble birth of Christ our Lord and Savior.

Food, fellowship and fun including the popping of the English “crackers” and the annual paper hat family photograph rounded out the evening. Christmas day was a quieter, but no less pleasant affair. The family Christmas tree, cut fresh off the back forty was declared the best(and tallest)that we have ever had. My wife has a very particular aesthetic and she makes all decorating decisions. However this year, I sneaked in one Christmas decoration of my own.(see pic below)

Anyway, enough of this sentimental blathering on … just look at the pictures and Have a Happy New Year from my family to yours. Until I find more words . . . The PeeMan

PredatorPee Wins Out over Feral Hawaii Hogs

Greetings! About 10 inches of snow on the ground and more predicted for tomorrow – winter wonderland at Winterberry Farm! But, today’s blog post takes us to a place where Christmas is green and palm trees fill the landscape – beautiful Hawaii. It seems that the author of the following blog had been struggling with the destruction caused by the feral hog population on her island home UNTIL she found PredatorPee! But, you don’t have to take my word for it – read below . . .

Life on Kaua’i: Wild Pigs in Paradise By Gabriela Taylor

author of “Geckos & Other Guests: Tales of a Kaua‘i Bed & Breakfast”

Snorting grunt sounds wake me up in the middle of the night. Baffled at first, I finally emerge from a fog and think that pigs must be poking around somewhere on my property. When the grunts intensify, however, I become alarmed and realize that hogs are climbing the hill to my house. My large furnished lanai is open on one side and its centerpiece, a lush indoor garden, would serve as a delectable gourmet grazing ground for the hungry beasts. Scary thoughts of wild, long tusked, razor-backed, boars pillaging the lanai race through my mind— like a train to hell.

Over the years, country living has allowed a menagerie of unwanted animals to parade through my yard. Among them are: a gaggle of snapping geese, ti leaf chopping cows, a screeching peahen that settled in for 3 months, a herd of goats and now wild boar. In fact, voracious wild pigs are creating havoc all over the island of Kaua’i. Pigs prance down from the mountains in search of food and ruthlessly tear up vegetable gardens, ornamental plants and can even be found rooting around beach resorts. Soil erosion and loss of native plants are serious problems, but what about the tourist industry? Somehow, a “wild pigs in paradise” picture does not fit the happy Hawaiian holiday cliché that lures tourists. Reflecting on the saying,“ if you get a lemon, make lemonade”, I ponder; how can this potential problem become an asset? One idea: clever advertising would feature wild boar BarBQ as sustainable organic fare in our island gourmet restaurants. Although, I have never eaten wild boar, it only seems responsible to consume game that has been killed— and to give thanks.

2 AM

The clock says 2 AM when I jump out of bed, run out on the second story lanai and begin yelling relentlessly, ”Get out of here!” Understandably alarmed, my neighbor comes crashing through the dense foliage ready to scare off a human intruder. ‘It’s the pigs’ I say, “They’re on a rampage.” I am aware that my explanation seems bizarre since, by this time, the pigs have become as silent as deer and no predator, man or beast, is visible in the inky night. My neighbor looks up at me standing on the lanai like an apparition in my white nightgown, shakes his head, says, “good luck”, and disappears. It is apparent that my sanity is in question if not completely negated. By now, the mute pigs don’t seem threatening, even to me, so I fall back into bed, and repress the drama like a bad dream. I remember nothing about it when I wake up.

It is deja vu a few days later when I spot three little, red-brown pigs, perhaps teenagers, nosing around my yard in broad daylight. It jolts my memory to recall the night-marauding pigs. Now, these scoundrels are rooting up some of my favorite ornamental plants, an extensive bank of bromeliads. Would my orchids be next? The next day six spotted swine appear (they seem to group in triplicate just like the nursery rhyme) to scope out the territory. Alas, the following morning broken bromeliads lie scattered on the ground like sacrificial offerings to a hog god. This is serious; I call for help.

My neighbor, I’ll call him Robin Hood, comes by with bow and arrow, (thankfully, when I am away), kills, then later smokes and eats the pork. The following day, Robin Hood’s son, a young tattooed man with bulging muscles, brings over traps. After he scopes out the property and finds likely sites to set them, I ask him, ”what about my cat?” This plan seems sketchy, slow and somewhat dangerous to my pet. And I’m not betting on traps eliminating all 5 remaining pigs in a timely fashion. Maybe there are more, perhaps 9,12 or even 15 pigs waiting to pillage! My bromeliads have suffered severe damage and will be completely decimated if the pigs persist much longer. Still looking for a quick fix, I call the Ag extension man. But he has no other ideas than those that the men are already trying.

A friend of mine has dealt with a wild pig problem successfully in a non-violent way. The once wild pig, named Petunia Hawg, wanders around or sleeps somewhere in his neighborhood until it’s time to eat.  Both early morning and late afternoon, Petunia appears punctually at the back door and rubs up against the deck until food is placed in her pot. She no longer destroys gardens and everyone is happy. OK, that is a peaceful solution for one animal, but feeding 6 grunting pigs twice a day is not my calling.

Breakthrough

A big break through occurs at my place. My housemate goes online and discovers the PredatorPee,com website. The principle of this strange strategy is that specific animal urine scents, such as wolf, bobcat, coyote and fox will deter specific predators. I briefly reflect upon how on earth anyone would collect pee from those animals and decide that I don’t want to know, although I am excited about the promise of purging pigs in such a peaceful way.  The website says that mountain lion pee is guaranteed to drive off desert animals such as armadillos and javalinas, as well as wild boar. I immediately place an order online.

I can’t bear the thought of dispensing liquid pee, but thankfully they offer an alternative form: crystalline mountain lion pee. Since it has to be shipped from the mainland to Hawaii, I have time to anguish over my diminishing bromeliad bed and talk to people about the problem. Robin Hood’s son comes by to check the traps and reports that they have captured 2 pigs. He is skeptical when I tell him about the mountain lion pee, saying that Hawaiian pigs have never been exposed to lions, so where would the fear come from? That makes sense, but I hope he is wrong.

Finally, one afternoon, I see the brown UPS truck climbing my driveway and get excited. When I tell the deliveryman what’s in the box, he boosts my confidence for its potential by saying that it must work by genetic memory rather than by a learned response. Immediately, I rip open the box and find 2 cylindrical containers, like oversized saltshakers. Indiscreetly, I hold one up to my nose and take a whiff, which almost knocks me off my feet. Feeling like a sorceress who should be chanting magic words, I sprinkle pee crystals around the perimeter of the bromeliad bed. Would these strange, strong and smelly crystals make pigs flee on their tiny hoofs with disgust or fear— or both? Will it work?

Epilogue

Several months later, I can report that no plant-plundering pigs have returned to my property. Elated with success, I email the pee man at to see if they have pee to ward off pesky wild chickens. The reply is informative, but disappointing. They say that chickens do not have a highly developed sense of smell, therefore making it impossible to provide a scent that would scare them away from my vegetable garden. I have a theory. Way back at the beginning, the rooster smell gene became weak when it was intimidated by the sound gene.

Cock-a doodle-do!

When Coyotes Attack! All-Natural Solution – 100% WolfPee

Greetings from the North Woods! Well, there is a little snow on the ground now, and the mercury is dropping. It is definitely starting to look like Christmas around here. In between trips to the woodpile, Stanley’s pen and the hen house, I  have been catching up on my email. Lots of stories about the increasing threat that coyotes are posing in residential neighborhoods continue to  come to my attention. Below are just a few of the recent ones . . .

“In the morning gloom Thursday, Alan Watkin let his soft-coated Wheaton terrier Athena out into his condominium yard, tied to a rope to keep her close. He went into the kitchen of his Pemberton Terrace home and just sat down when he heard a massive yelp. “I go out and the coyote’s got her by the back leg. I managed to chase the coyote off. He ran probably 20 feet, stopped, and I ran at him again. He ran down to the road and down toward Sahali Terrace,” Watkin said later that day, after a trip to the veterinarian.

Coyotes aren’t a common sight in Lower Sahali. Deer occasionally wander through, straying from Peterson Creek. But not coyotes preying on neighbourhood pets. Atkin wants his neighbours and other city residents to be aware how widespread coyotes are.” (excerpt from Kamloops Daily News article by Michele Young)  http://www.kamloopsnews.ca/article/20131206/KAMLOOPS0101/131209903/-1/KAMLOOPS/coyote-attacks-lower-sahali-terrier

“Another worried dog owner has come forward after her Westie was almost dragged away by a coyote last week in West Kelowna. This is the second story of an aggressive daylight coyote attack in our area, the last time the beloved pet did not make it. Cynthia Jarvis lives on the edge of the Two Eagles Golf Course in West Kelowna.

Last Monday Dec. 2 her roommate took Jarvis’s Westie, Winston, and her Sheltie, Piper, for their daily afternoon play in the backyard. She says they were kicking the ball and having a wonderful time in the snow when a coyote, she believes was stalking them, rushed in and grabbed Winston. “It only took a moment and a coyote had latched onto my 19-pound Westie and was dragging him out onto the golf course,” shares Jarvis.

Her roommate screamed and started chasing the coyote, fortunately Winston was able to break free and run back to the house.  “If it was not for Winston’s strength and my friends screams, my Winnie would be gone,” says a shocked Jarvis. (excerpt from Castanet News article by Carmen Weld) http://www.castanet.net/news/West-Kelowna/104292/Coyote-attacks-dog-in-broad-daylight

“Huron-Kinloss Township is reporting a few coyote problems. It follows similar reports from nearby Kincardine. A small dog was killed recently in Kincardine by coyotes wandering through town. A report from Huron-Kinloss bylaw officer Brianne Elliott stated that coyotes are a major concern in the urban areas of the township. She told last night’s council meeting that the township has been advised to have residents report sightings to the Ministry of Natural Resources. But she also said the Municipality’s option are limited in trying to aid residents with concerns. Elliott said most of the concerns are from Huron-Kinloss areas year Kincardine.” (excerpt from BlackburnNews.com article by Ken Kilpatrick)

Well, as you know, I am a man who likes to solve problems and help others find solutions to theirs. 100% WolfPee is effective for keeping coyotes away. It is time to get the word out about this all-natural coyote deterrent. 100% WolfPee – accept no substitutes and keep Fido and Fifi and buster(you get the idea)safe from harm!

100% Mt. LionPee vs. Boar – PredatorPee Unleashed: Episode 2

Greetings!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We sure did – as always lots to be thankful for!

Without further ado, as promised – the second episode of PredatorPee UnleashedThe following is a video of a boar reacting to our 100% Mt. LionPee and 100% WolfPee. These critters are scared senseless and want nothing to do with the scent of their feared predators. NOTE: This video was provided to us, the PeeMan does not have any boars in pens on the farm(only Stanley the pig) – and no animals were harmed in the production of this clip.  Take a look . . .

At http://www.predatorpee.com, we sell Mt. LionPee to protect against wild boar, javelina, and feral hogs BUT our customers in Japan have successfully used both Mt. LionPee and WolfPee to keep these animals out of the rice paddies.
