Sure Signs of Spring: Chicken Wrangling and PeeMan in the Garden

Greetings!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. We owe a deepest debt of gratitude to those men and women who have fought and died in the fight to keep our great country free. Thank you.

Well, it is 58 degrees out. No worries about getting the air conditioners in any time soon. I haven’t even thought about getting the pool ready(and I am usually ready for it in April!). Spring is definitely taking her sweet time this year. We have had plenty of moisture but sunshine has been a rare commodity. However, certain events of this past weekend are undeniable indicators of Spring’s return(however reluctant) – the 8 chicks were moved out of their “chickubator” and into the hen house.

That was the easy part.

Getting Brown Betty and The Amish Hen into their new spacious digs was a bit more challenging.

It involved some tricky manuevering, some edible motivation, and a little coaxing with a badminton racket, but I am pleased to announce that the girls are now enjoying a much bigger run and spacious hen condominium.

Secondly, last year’s pig sty(R.I.P Stanley)was disassembled and a new, much more luxurious and commodious pen was built in a new location in anticipation of the arrival of 2 piglets.

The environmentally conscious man that I am, I simply couldn’t let all that rich, nutrient filled earth left behind by pig pen #1 go to waste.  So, that is now officially the PeeMan’s garden patch. Since it is mine, and it is hidden  so as not to offend my wife’s aesthetic sensibilities, I get to grow what I want in it, so the corn has been planted and squash and pumpkins will soon follow.

My daughter has also laid claim to some of the land for her own garden this year and the peas and lettuce have already been planted. As soon as the seeds sprout, the WolfPee will be put around the garden plot to protect the tender shoots from any hungry animals.

Well, that just about brings things up to date here at the PeeMan’s farm. I hope it is warm and sunny where you are, and don’t forget to protect your gardens this summer with 100% PredatorPee – Accept no substitutes!

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.

Words from the Customers Continued . . .

Greetings!

Every now and again I like to empty my PeeMail and share with you the great stuff that I hear from customers every day.  So without further ado. . .

“Hi, Family friend is a satisfied customer and she recommended your products to chase squirrels. Thanks. Richard”

“I read an article about Bobcat pee as a repellent for mice, and found you using a google search. bmf”

“I have been ordering your products for a few years, mainly bobcat and coyote pee for rats and mice. I used google to find you the first time and I continue to refer customers to you. Thank You…Joyce”

“I purchased from you previously, found you via web search. . .  So far the Wolf urine seems to being working. I have four small dogs and we have seen coyotes in our area pretty regularly . I will be trying the granules for the first time when this next order arrives. I plan on taking some with me when we head to our Florida home this winter, YES, there are coyotes there too.”

“I found out about you because my friend had racoons and used your products and they went away. Courtney”

“This is the second order I’ve made. I found you by a google search. Haven’t seen any bobcats or coyote! Thanks for giving me a little peace of
mind. Lisa”

Not much to add to all that. So, until I find more words . . .

Summer Departs and Mice Move in

mouseHello Again!

I don’t know about where you live, but up here in the North Woods, autumn is definitely creeping in with the nearly frosty night time temperatures causing air conditioning units to disappear out of windows everywhere. I will have to be firing up the wood stove before you know it and getting the farm ready for winter.

Well, as you probably know, when the air inside your home becomes warmer than the outside air, certain animals look for shelter anywhere within your cozy walls – most commonly mice. These small rodents might pass as “cute” for some folks, but to me a rodent is a rodent and I am not willing to share my food or precious warmth with any of them.

Now is the time to ward off any mice invasions by putting the natural predator-prey instinct to work for you.   In the wild Bobcats prey on many rodents and small animals.  So when you want to get rid of mice, moles, voles, etc., bobcat urine is a most effective natural repellent and deterrent that stops these pests from nesting, chewing or doing other damage to your attic, basement, garage, barn or garden.

So, if you don’t relish small, furry house guests this fall, you better get yourself some 100% Bobcat Pee!!

Ward Off Winter Wire Chewers

Hello Again!
Well it has been a rough week around here. I am starting to feel like I am living in a bad country song. My truck broke. Then my motorcycle went on the fritz. If my dog dies or my wife leaves me then I will be right there with a tear in my beer. But, seriously it has been one of those weeks.RVPic

Enough personal stuff. In Maine, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler, and that can mean only one thing — fall is coming and winter will be short to follow. That means that it will soon be time to get those boats out of the water and rvs off the road. At the same time all the small nuisance rodents are eagerly waiting to find a warm cozy place in which to spend the long winter months. So it is time for you to start thinking about protecting these valuable assets from chewing, nesting rodents. And the PeeMan once again has your back. Our Car-Rv-Boat Pak is the solution to preventing the expensive damage that can happen when your rvs and boats are in winter storage. But, don’t take my word for it . . .

“Hi,
I have been ordering Bobcat Urine from you for so long that I am fuzzy on the details. I believe I did a Google search about nontoxic ways to get rid of mice. I believe that led me to some articles about bobcat urine, then I did a Google search on bobcat urine and there you were. It works great for my purposes. The fewer mice my cats bring in, the happier I am.”

“Sir, you have a very effective product. I have ordered your product in the past with no problems…Animal Control here in Temple City suggested your product.”
Nino

“A friend, who is a satisfied customer, recommended you. This is my second order. Obviously it worked the first time or I would not have ordered again.”

Canada or Canadian Geese – A Nuisance Either Way

Hello All!

Well the last two posts that I have written have concerned pests with which I have no particular experience. However, today’s nuisance of choice is all too common around these parts. Apparently the proper name for the overgrown black and brown birds is Canada Geese but I have never heard them called anything other than Canadian Geese and since this my blog, that is what we are going with.

According to my reading, these birds had neared extinction until we humans brought  them back from the brink, and they repayed us with prolific reproduction causing them to go from threatened to nuisance in a few decades. Ah well, what to do about the sometimes aggressive flocks of giant pooping avians?

Birds might seem a bit out of the PeeMan’s purview, but actually we have developed a unique two pronged approach to this particular pest problem – The PeeCoy. Geeese, turkeys, ducks and other birds depend on very keen eyesight to warn them of the presence of predators. Our PeeCoy Coyote Decoy Combo combines a realistic 2 sided Coyote Decoy with the realism enhancer of CoyotePee. The combination of both seeing and smelling a coyote will tell birds clearly that your yard is not a safe place to be! The PeeCoy Combo combines one sturdy, life-size, easy-to-set-up2-sided Coyote Decoy, one 12 oz bottle of CoyotePee and one 12 pack of ScentTags.

So whatever they are called where you are from, the solution is the same – PeeCoy. Accept no substitutes!

Prairie Dogs of Summer?

Hello Again!

Well, I truly hope you are having a pleasant summer. Around here the tomatoes are turning red on the vine and the ears of native corn are starting to pop up at roadside stands. Unfortunately, this year’s corn- growing in my garden did not go so well. Late cold and lots of wet despoiled the crop. Oh well, that is why we have grocery stores, right? In another piece of farming news, the escaped pig was never recovered and while I make my living trying to help people keep predators away, I kind of hope a coyote got it because the idea of a full-grown feral pig wandering my woods is not a pleasant one. Anyway, the remaining pig( which my youngest daughter has named Stanley) seems to be settling in to life on the PeeMan’s farm. Of course that is easy when he can be blissfully unaware of his impending demise. I however am not unaware and am impatiently waiting for Stanley chops and Stanley bacon. Sorry if this bothers some of you, but a man’s got to eat!

Enough about me! Last post I took a look at a yard pest that is totally foreign to my neck of the woods, and today I will travel down that same road. Prairie dogs sort of require prairies and last time I checked there aren’t too many of those up here in the Great North Woods. But, apparently there are some parts of the country where these gopher like creatures still make their homes. From what I can gather, those “homes” can be destructive to yards and gardens. On the other hand, the labeling of the prairie dog as a pest has led to a damaging level of eradication. So, a solution that does not harm this unique and fascinating creature but encourages them to make their home elsewhere would be ideal. Just so happens . . .We’ve got a pee for that! The coyote is one of the prairie dog’s natural predators so our 100% CoyotePee is the perfect solution!

Well, a nice blend of personal and business makes for a good blog post.

So, until I find more words. . .
