PeeMan Does Homework

It has been a long time since I have had to do any homework and a fairly long time since I had to help anyone with homework. And that is fine with me – guiding three daughters through algebra and geometry was no treat. I am glad those tear soaked math papers and frustrating nights are long gone. But, recently the PeeMan has been getting requests to help broaden the minds of youth across the nation. boy doing his homeworkThat’s right – much to my wife’s disbelief – the PeeMan has been asked for homework help. Not just once either:

“Hello,

We are doing a school project on how to keep deer away from gardens. We were wondering if urine becomes less potent in cold weather?”
“Hi:  We are a fifth grade Robotics team who is doing a project on safely deterring raccoons from people’s yards.  We are doing the project for a competition we are entering that has a community service piece.  We are designing a motion detected spray device that would spray a scent as a deterrent to raccoons.  We have several questions about predator pee:

1) What type of predator pee would deter raccoons?
2) Would that type deter other animals too?
3) Would it have any bad effects on the environment besides smell?
4) How strong is the predator pee smell?
5) How do you get the predator pee?
6) How much does the predator pee cost?
7) Do you think it would work to spray predator pee?
8) Do you know how far pee would spray and be effective?”

These are just a couple of the requests that I have received from inquiring young minds. I am flattered of course and more than willing to educate them concerning all things pee. Just like I am willing to educate my readers. Today’s educational fact: Our predatorpee is 100% real, pure pee. Not manufactured, not synthetic, not watered down – it is the real deal.

Ask the PeeMan: Raucous Raccoons?

It has been a loong time. Summer slump – but the air is cooling and it is time for the PeeMan to get bloggin’ again! We will start with a tidbit from my PeeMail . . .

Question:

Hello,

> I have raccoons frequently pooing in my backyard and especially on my deck. I have kids. How safe is coyote urine? Can it be sprayed on decks? Can it also be sprayed on grass? How do I apply it and how often should I apply it? My backyard is roughly 45 x 30 feet. Raccoon

> How long does it take to ship coyote urine to Canada?  I live in . . .  I understand shipping is free.

> Thanks

Answer:

Figure about a week to Canada – shipping is quick, but customs works on their own timeframe. For a deck, use with our ScentTags or 33Day Dispensers – I wouldn’t recommend drinking PredatorPee but it is non-toxic.

Urine for Human Pests? Nope – Skunk’Um!

My wife thinks that I make stuff up. She thinks that some of my ideas are only great in my mind. Well, granted, a few of my ideas haven’t panned out exactly as I may have hoped(that’s for another post) but a question I received from a clever customer this week confirms that the invention of Skunk’Um is a great solution for a real problem. The fact that we have sold hundreds of bottles since it launched doesn’t hurt either. Without further ado . . . it is Ask The PeeMan Wednesday!

Q. I am curious which is the absolute worst smelling urine of all the ones you sell? I am looking for something to spray/place outside my bedroom window to deter people from loitering so I am able to get some sleep at night so I guess my predator would be human.
> Thank you, Amy

 

A. Amy,

Sorry for the delay – its our crazy season. See Skunk’um – for annoying people at this link: http://www.predatorpeestore.com/skunk-um.html

As you can see from my response, I have been a little delinquent in responding to my peemail lately. Shipping pee during the busy season and keeping up with the summer farm chores has kept me away my keyboard. Never fear, if you ask the PeeMan a question he will answer – just not as quickly in May, June and July!

Ask the PeeMan: California Skunks

Hi there, we live just outside of San Diego, California in a little town.  We used to smell skunks once in a while but it’s getting very bad lately.  I came across your website and I’m a little confused which predator pee is best for skunks – would you recommend the fox pee granules?   We have some plants clustered together and it seems like they like to go in there, could we just spread the granules in that area and call it good?   Although it says the granules are recommended for burrowing creatures, should they work for skunks too.  How often do you think we would need to reapply?  Anyway, any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Shelly

Shelly,

Yes FoxPee Granules would work fine – skunks like to dig for grubs etc. Reapply after rain – which I understand is not so frequent in So California. Here is the link:

Ask the PeeMan: HawkStopper Questions

Wednesday is Ask the PeeMan day!

Those of you who are familiar with the blog will  remember that a couple of months ago, my company launched the HawkStopper product. For so many years, we had people asking if we had anything for birds. Well, birds don’t have much of a sense of smell, so predatorpee wasn’t the solution for them. Now predatory birds have to think twice about attacking chickens because of HawkStopper – visual deflection net.

Q. What is it made of and what is its life span?  Also, what are the length/width dimensions of the 1500 sq ft package?  Thanks! Susan

 

A.Susan,
HawkStopper is made of three strands of white nylon filaments twisted together to hawkstopper-visual-deflection-logo-900form a single strand of twine with a bonded coating that keeps the netting white and flexible.  Should last at least 5 years. Here is the link:

Ask the PeeMan: Will it bother my dog?

Now back to our our regularly scheduled Wednesday’s Ask The PeeMan. This week features a question that I get frequently, so frequently in fact that I decided to include two examples. People are invariably concerned about the effect of PredatorPee on Fido or Fiffi or Buster . . .

Q. How will Wolf urine affect our dog. We are trying to keep cats off our property. Thanks. Dongray_and_white_terrier_looking_up

Q. We just ordered Coyote Pee to protect our yard from raccoons.  Will this coyote urine cause a problem with our domesticated dog?  He plays in the yard all the time.  Please advise.  Lorraine

 

A. No, your dog might be a bit curious, but that is all.
KJ The PeeMan

I love it when I can give a simple answer! No need to fear for your beloved dog.

Ask the PeeMan: Deer Problem

I have read that having an editorial calendar is an important part of blogging. Well, my calendar is a little screwed up this week and Wednesday’s Ask the PeeMan is on Saturday. Deal with it blogosphere.

Q. I am experiencing a  deer problem, they are eating my flowers!  I have always made a point of only planting flowers that are not their favorite.  I spray bitter cherry on the plants & it has deterred them up until this year
Strange, because we had a warm wet winter & there seems to be lots of other choices for them. The flowers are mostly in container pots, so I am thinking that the the granules might work best, as I can sprinkle directly on the soil. herten-5I see that you recommend Coyote to keep the deer away.  Guessing that Mountain Lion would work as well?  Would one work better than the other, and/or are there downsides of one over the other?  IE: attracting Mountain Lions?

I have also just ordered some Deer Out.  It combines a bad taste with a peppermint smell that apparently the Deer dislike.  Do you think the Deer Out with its strong smell might over power the urine granules & negate its benefits? 

Suppose another option would be venison stew

Thanks for your time Mr. PeeMan!

Sincerely,
PeeWoman

 

A. Tracy,
CoyotePee is always my first choice for deer. The idea is to create a “pee-rimeter” a little ways back from the food source. That way the deer will get the scent of the predator before the attraction of the food source is too much to resist. The inherent problem with taste deterrents is that it requires the deer to already be in your garden! The PeeMan likes to prevent them from getting there in the first place. Predator Urine can attract same specie predators if they are already in the area. Here are some links with more info:
