This week’s question comes from a neighbor to the north(yes there is something north of Maine)in Canada. Inconsiderate river otters? WolfPee to the rescue!
Q. Hey ‘PeeMan‘. (Gotta like it!)
River otters have taken up the habit of crapping on the rear deck of one of our water taxis. I tried Critter Ridder which is less than useless. Any suggestions ?
WolfPee is what you need. If you can, hang our ScentTags down near the waterline so they get a good whiff before they decide to climb on board. Animal behavior is always trickier around water, but give it a try…we have a great guarantee- if the WolfPee doesn’t do it, we’ll send you some BearPee at no charge and if that still doesn’t do it, we give you your money back! (As you can probably guess – we don’t have to do that very often!)
Thanks for writing – here’s the direct WolfPee Link:
Until I find more words . . . The PeeMan
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?
