Want to Know How to Get Rid of Rats? Ask the Peeman, like Kathryn did

Rats hanging out in cars and eating essential parts is a common enough problem in the District of Columbia. As City Desk previously chronicled, it happens in Adams Morgan. It happens at 15th and U. Kathryn Kailian, anesthetician who lives in Dupont Circle, had to take her car in six times for service because of rat damage. At one point, she submitted a claim for the $1,200 her dealership charged to completely re-wire her vehicle. “Our insurance company dropped us,” she says.

Fed up, Kailian Googled for solutions and found PredatorPee Coyote Pee. She ordered a bottle of it on the Internet, sprayed it on her engine, and hasn’t had a problem since. One bottle will last her “for years” since she only spritzes every few months. The smell dissipates pretty quickly and the rats have left her alone, despite the fact that she parks in an alley with Dumpsters filled by Five Guys, Chipotle, Cosi, and other delicious-to-rats restaurants.” Posted by Jule Banville < WashingtonCityPaper.com/blog on Feb. 6, 2009 at 10:26 am

 

You always know when you have rats. You know – you go down in the basement and turn on the light and you see just the flick of black cord-like tail disappear in a dark corner. Or you see the ugly droppings or you spot one burrowing in the chicken feed. No matter whether they are city rats, roof rats, country rats, Norway rats or whatever you call them in your neck of the woods, you just want them GONE!

The PeeMan to the rescue! PredatorPee Coyote Pee will get rid of the rats- it is as simple as that!

Here is what you do:

To Keep Rats Out of Buildings:  Use liquid CoyotePee in our 12 or 16 ounce bottles in conjunction with our ScentTags or 33Day Dispensers.  Just fill the dispensers or spray the tags and hang on the provided wooden stakes every 10-12’ around the outside of the foundation.

To Get Rats Out: Use our specially designed “pee-loaded” CoyotePeeShots. Just take off the caps and place in those dark corners that rats love – like under the sink or anywhere you have seen droppings.

To Keep Rats out of Your Car: Use PeeShots placed by each tire and in the engine compartment while the vehicle is parked.

 

Thanks to the help of our customers, we found that when it comes to Pee, rats hate CoyotePee. We don’t know exactly why they fear coyotes more than any other predator, but we know they do because our customers say so. Our Pee customers tell us what works, and the PeeMan listens and develops the pee products the people need in order to take care of their problem. It’s that simple.

One of the PeeMan’s Favorite Questions: How to get rid of cats?

feralcatsThe PeeMan is not a big cat fan so I take particular interest when someone asks “How to get rid of feral and domestic cats or keep cats out .” That’s an easy one – use PredatorPee® Wolf Urine – There is nothing more disgusting than finding that neighborhood cats have been using your prize garden for a litter box! The PeeMan would really hate that! Now you can repel cats effectively and naturally with PredatorPee® Wolf Pee liquid or Yard Cover Shakin’ Flake Granules. A cat’s fear of a wolf is imprinted deep in its genetic code. When they smell wolf urine, it triggers the instinct to avoid or flee serious danger. Even if a cat has never seen a wolf in its life, the genetic life-and-death warning code of the wild is always on alert! First make sure that all food sources are gone. A really hungry cat might risk an encounter with a wolf to get to that bowl of Purina dog chow on your deck. So take away the temptation first then create a “pee-rimeter” around your flowers and vegetables using Wolf Pee Liquid in 12 oz or 16 oz bottles along with our ScentTags or 33Day All-Weather Dispensers. Or shake out our Shakin’ Flakes right on the ground around individual plants. When the cats smell the PredatorPee® Wolf Urine, they know that the rest room is closed!

and I found you. And wolf urine has worked good to keep the cats out. Thanks!”

Pee – It’s Not a Business, It’s a Calling for the PeeMan

Did you ever wonder why someone would get in the Pee Business? The PeeMan certainly has! Did the PeeMan when asked in childhood “what do you want to be when you grow up,” say: I want to sell Pee to people around the world?

If he did, I am sure there would have been therapy for that.

No, the PeeMan did not choose to be in the Pee business, it was chosen for him and he was made for it.

You see the PeeMan was educated to be a journalist, but having a job was not very appealing. The entrepreneurial spark was ignited early. It was once written that the definition of an entrepreneur was someone who would do almost anything to avoid getting a job. That is the PeeMan.

The PeeMan left college before graduation to be a journalist but did not want a job. So he started his own weekly newspaper at the age of 20 and at the age of 20 and a half, the PeeMan’s newspaper was broke. But in those 6 months, he learned where the money was and next launched a free-lance ad agency, which lead to a partnership in a real ad agency, which led to his own marketing and advertising agency which led to a client that sold urine to hunters and trappers.

For that client, the future PeeMan became the voice of urine in the marketplace and the Pee prospered. He learned the qualities, characteristics and applications of pee. He learned to talk pee like nobody else. He learned it was fun. And he learned he really liked it!

Then the client put his urine business up for sale and the PeeMan did not want to see it go – so he bought it.  In 1986 the PeeMan had his own little pee-business selling pee to sportsmen and photographers who wanted attract animals using the scent of urine as lure.

Then everything changed. A lawn and garden store in New Hampshire called one day and wanted to buy fox urine because one of their customers wanted to use it keep rabbits out of their garden. They said that the customer had gotten some urine last season from a local trapper and that it worked really great.

It was a light bulb moment for the fledgling PeeMan. The scent and lure market for hunters and trappers was nice little niche for the small pee company, but the lawn and garden market was something else entirely!

The real pee business was calling the PeeMan! And the PeeMan answered. From that point on, the PeeMan learned that his customers were leading the way for him. They were telling him everyday where his business would go. All he had to do was listen. They would call and write with their animal pest problem and the PeeMan would go to work matching a pee to the problem. And then the customers would tell him how it worked. And on it went, in 1986 the biggest animal pest problem was deer. Now over 30 years later, it is coyotes, cats and rats and the PeeMan has the right Pee for them all!

And the Pee world gets bigger and bigger everyday – The PeeMan brings the right pee for wild boar in Japan, moose in Finland, civet cats in Israel, blue bulls in India and the list goes on and on.

Everyday the PeeMan and his family get to work using the God-created tools that keep balance in nature. We get to bring you Pee – the incredible natural communicator that animals use to avoid danger and find mates. We love telling people we are in the Pee business and thank you for being a part of it too.

NEWSFLASH: Using Wolf Urine Works to Deter Coyotes – KTVN 2 News

gray-wolf-head-canis-lupus-436x544Of course we’ve known our 100% Wolf Pee is an effective deterrent against coyotes for years, but it is always nice to have some independent confirmation. Check out this story from a local tv station in the Reno-Sparks, NV area – and don’t worry it is not FAKE NEWS.

“There are a few ways to deter wildlife from coming onto your property. Here in Reno-Sparks, many are trying to keep coyotes out of their yards.

Wolf urine is one of the most widely-used deterrents in our area, according to Michael Beran, Owner and Operator of Wildlife Command Center. Beran says that’s in part because people can order it online and in large amounts.

So how does it work? It plays off of their animal instincts. Bill Chamberlain, Director of the United States Wolf Refuge in Reno, says, “Their sense of smell, their sense of hearing is so intuitive, that the scent of wolf urine lays out the scent of an adversary.” Beran adds, “That instinct is very, very effective against a female coyote, especially one that’s thinking about, or is, denning.”

Therefore, if the coyote lurking around your home is a female, then wolf urine would likely do the trick. But, when it comes to the male, especially urban coyotes like we see in our area, it likely won’t be effective. Beran explains, “He’s never experienced the wolf, so he doesn’t know the threat, and so he’s just not as afraid.”

However, if your curiosity is piqued and you’re looking for a non-lethal option to keep coyotes at bay, you may think it’s worth the try–especially if you’re unsure if it’s a male or female coyote, or perhaps both, near your neighborhood.

If you do try it, Beran says the application process is important.  Always squirt the product on a fence or pole–above the height of your knee. He explains, “The higher that lift is, the bigger an animal thinks that predator is. Apply the urine to all major posts or fences along your yard, similar to a wolf marking its territory.

Now for the million dollar question: How do companies collect the urine?

It comes from wolves living in preserves and kennels with special flooring. Those floors have collection troughs underneath, so when they urinate, it goes into that trough, where manufacturers are able to collect and process it.

Beran says, if raccoons are your problem, wolf urine is a completely effective deterrent in that case.

We’d like to point out that the U.S. Wolf Refuge in Reno shown in this story does not collect their wolves’ urine. PredatorPee is one of many wolf urine sellers available online. To check them out, click here.

(As an aside, our long term experience with the predator-prey instinct principle has demonstrated time and again that the fear is instinctual and not based on exposure to the predator, therefore, in this case,  the wolf urine works to deter both male and female coyotes)
