Today’s Ask the PeeMan: Squirrels Under the Hood

Greetings from the North woods!

Well we have had some nice sunny weather, but today it is brutally cold. We have had frost warnings up for the last two nights, so I guess it was a good thing that I didn’t plant my garden before Memorial Day!

PeeMailTodays featured Ask the PeeMan comes to us from Deeanna:

Q.  I have had squirrels build a nest under my car hood under the engine twice this past week and chew through all the wires. My neighbour suggested coyote urine and my question is – is it okay to spray the engine and under the hood with this. I don’t want to damage anything.

A. For squirrels, we recommend FoxPee and we have a product designed specifically for your situation. Our FoxPeeShots are small “pee-loaded” cannisters – you just remove the lid and place in engine compartment and on the ground near each tire – re-cap and remove before driving.
See this link for details:
http://www.predatorpeestore.com/Predator-PeeShots.html

We have been selling more and more of our pee shots to car, RV and boat owners who are fed up with rodents of various types chewing wires, upholstery and otherwise wreaking havoc. Mechanics and dealerships across the country are starting to recommend our product to their customers. The convenient no fuss pee-loaded pee shots make it easy to use.  And as always, we guarantee our products or your money back! We have excellent customer service representatives(real people)to talk to on the phone and we are continually optimizing our website and shopping cart to make your online experience exceptional. I may be an old fashioned entreprenuer but I think that good customer service never goes out of style. My philosophy is that even if the product didn’t perform as expected every customer goes away knowing that we went above and beyond to ensure an overall positive experience. It may seem cliche’ but at Maine Outdoor Solutions LLC, the customer is always right!

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 . . .

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.”
Tamara

“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.”
Elizabeth

Nuff said!

Even More Words from the Customers

PeeMailI am always astounded at the number of emails that I receive from people all over the country telling us how our product works for them. Now, mind  you, I am not astounded that the product works – that’s a given – I am astounded that people will take the time to write me an email about it. Nevertheless, my PeeMail box just keeps filling up! So, without further ado . . .

“HI, I’ve been looking for something to keep my cute chipmunks out of the blackberries. Several people suggested coyote urine. I googled several sites. Yours looked like the “most authentic” – not sure what I mean. The Amazon site had several products, but they had mixed reviews. Some sites had general “predator urine“. I think I liked that you are in Maine.” – Phyllis

"This is at least my fifth reorder for 16 oz  BOBCATPEE spray. I originally found you about ten years ago by 

internet search (I think it was Google) for “Bobcat urine,” after hearing a comment on radio about bobcat urine being effective in keeping rodents out of the engine compartment. . . .We are in a rural area with an abundance of rats and mice. A few spray shots in the engine compartment of our two vehicles every one to two weeks or so generally keeps them out. When I’m negligent and it goes for several weeks without spraying, I get loaded with juniper tree branches, sticks, and droppings, etc. plus fire hazard and several times in the past, wiring gnawing damage. We also spray the corners of outside doors to hold down night deposits of droppings and ratpee. Aside from that, this is “The Land of Enchantment.” – Stan

“I found you on Google while searching for “predator urine for raccoons”. I’m going camping and heard that this was the best thing to keep the raccoons out of the
camp ground. ” – Athena

“I originally purchased coyote pee at Fleet farm in Minnesota. When I couldn’t find it one year I started ordering it on line. I used Google search engine. Love the product.”  – Mary

“HI THERE, I FOUND OUT BY SEARCHING THE INTERNET ORDERED YOUR PRODUCT AND FOUND IT TO BE
THE BEST STUFF AROUND. HOPE THAT HELPS YOU, THANKS PAULA”

“Hi, found you on google by searching “fisher scent” and you came up. Being from Maine I was psyched to see you are a Maine company. – Kate”

“I have ordered in the past. Found you on the Internet searching for something to keep the coyotes away from my cats. “- Kym

No one says it better than the customer!

Want to know what’s eating your garden?

InvaderHello Again!

I was musing about what to write today, and as I traveled the web the thought occurred to me that I am always telling you how to take care of pest problems, but how about helping you identify what pest is causing the damage? Sometimes you may have spotted the pesky creature, but most of our customers seem to be guessing at what lurks in their gardens by night. So I found the following information published on the web by the UMass Amherst Center for Agriculture and I thought I would pass it on. (hyperlinks have been added by me – UMASS Amherst in no way endorses predatorpee.com)

Damage by Wildlife (Vertebrates)
Rabbits, Voles, Woodchucks, Deer, Chipmunks, Squirrels
All eat leaves or fruits of plants in vegetable gardens. Symptoms include:
Large parts of the plant are chewed off
Leaves are nibbled; stems cut
New growth is uniformly nibbled off
Plants are eaten to the ground
Fruits are damaged or removed
To help determine what vertebrate animal is causing the damage, sprinkle a layer of finely ground limestone around the damaged plants and look for animal tracks left in the powder the next day.
Rabbit damage can be identified by foliage that has been nipped off sharply, leaving no ragged edges. Seedlings might be grazed to the ground, and new growth uniformly nibbled off. Look for pea-sized droppings in the vicinity. Rabbits don’t travel far from their burrows or resting places. They feed at dusk, in the night and early morning. They favor tender beans, beets, broccoli, carrots, lettuce and peas. Deer damage can be easily confused with rabbit damage, but usually large parts of plants are chewed off and deer tracks will be evident in the soil.
Voles damage seedlings by chewing leaves and stems. Vole damage can be confused with cutworm damage because voles will move down a row of seedlings eating just the stems and toppling plants. Or, they might nibble only on the leaves. They feed mostly at night. Look for vole tunnels in grassy areas at the edges of the garden. Voles stay close to their tunnels and sometimes tunnel right into the garden. Problems are more likely to occur when vole populations are high.
Woodchucks tend to trample plants as they feed. They feed close to their burrows during the day, especially in mid-morning and late afternoon. Like rabbits, woodchucks seek shelter in weedy areas, stonewalls, brush piles or under porches and outbuildings. They like corn, beans and peas, but will browse on many tender garden vegetables.
Chipmunks and squirrels may develop a taste for fruits, such as tomatoes or strawberries, more often than the leaves of vegetables. Watch your garden in early morning and at dusk for rodent activity.”

Hope this is helpful. Once you identify the pest, make sure to get some all natural, organic 100% PredatorPee – accept no substitutes!

Happy Gardening!

Well, I took a little hiatus from the blogosphere – you should see my tan! Been polishing up the Airstream gettin’ her ready to explore the Maine woods. Anyway, I’m back and my Peemail box is FULL! So, I thought I’d better pass some more along to you. Nobody says it better than the customer! . . .

ALL NATURAL, ORGANIC RACCOON REPELLENT

Hello,

I found your website through the google search engine. What helped me make my purchase was the review by the customer. I look forward to getting the bottles to get rid of the raccoons. I will definitely recommend your site.

Thank you

A. Garcia

100% ALL NATURAL WOLF URINE

I am a repeat customer and I am glad you are still around. The stuff works great. I thought I had one bottle left from my last order, but discovered I’m out. Moose are the worst destroyers of yards. I need the stuff fast. Thanks.

Bill

ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL DEER DETERRENT

We have such a problem with deer eating most anything we plant, even our rose bushes! I used Bing to search for pee deer repellent & my husband said, ORDER THAT! Yours was the first one on the top of the page, so I didn’t even look further. Thank you for making this available.

Vickie

ALL NATURAL CHIPMUNK REPELLENT

It’s been a couple of years since I ordered last, but I believe I was searching on the internet (Google) on what to use to get rid of groundhogs and deer and ordered coyote pee. This time we’re battling chipmunks at two houses, so I ordered the fox pee granules. Thanks!!! Your products do the trick (even though they stink!). 🙂

PeeMail

Hello again!

I get lots of interesting things in my PeeMail inbox, and I just don’t think it would be right to keep it to myself. So, I will give you a glimpse into what some of our customers are saying about buying PredatorPee for their organic, all natural pest control needs.

“Hi, I have a very bad rabbit problem and someone mentioned that predator urine helps, so I looked up rabbit deterrent / urine and bingo there you were. I checked out other web sites, but yours was so informative and is displayed in a way that even I can understand. . . .”
Thanks,
Vance

“A neighbor spotted a large coyote today….strolling through his yard…I did a little research with WA Dept. of Game and others…..I found your site via Google……and the site did not seem as hokey as some…..So I thought it would be worth a try…..it might also keep the deer away……” William

“I have a longtime problem with squirrels in my attic that seven or eight pest control firms have not been able to resolve. I just googled ‘squirrels in attic’ again and found a reference to fox urine as a possible solution, then searched for that and found you. The latest ‘solution’ — a strobe light — hasn’t worked. Hoping this does.” Philip

“Found you via a Google search for coyote urine. I have a family under my deck that I am desperate to be rid of without the hassle of live trapping. Had a raccoon kill my entire colony of Purple Martins last year. Hoping the product will work. Thanks….”Tonya

“Hi…..I”m looking forward to receiving my order from you! I heard about you this morning on Facebook. I follow a page called The Chicken
Chick, and she posted an article today about keeping rodents away from chicken coops. Bobcat Urine was one of the suggestions, and there was a link in the article directly to your site. So I placed my order. =)
Thanks!” Alexis

“I found out about your company through searching on Google. I loved Nate’s personality and the quick response I got when I called. The money back guarantee and free shipping was nice too but I have to say that it was Nate that sold me on the product. He was so willing to help me and explain in detail what to do. Thanks Nate!  Have a great day and continued success!” -Stacey

(FYI Nate is my right hand man – great on the phone – talking on the phone is not my favorite)

“I am a previous customer that lives on a deer migration path… I wouldn’t be without my Pee! Deer walk by my garden without touching it. I have no fences in the front yard, and I landscape with edibles. For three years I have successfully employed coyote pee around my property. Thanks for running around behind all those coyotes!”
-Victoria

Well, that is just a sampling of what comes into my inbox every day. New customers and old, some slightly skeptical, some exuberantly  optimistic, and some who just know it is good stuff and it works – my thanks go out to all of  you.

Anyway, hope you are enjoying the early summer and getting outside in  your gardens. I know I have been rototilling to beat the band. Till I find some more words. . . The PeeMan
