Arm Yourself Against Armadillos Naturally

Hello Again!

Where I live, you’ve got as much a chance of seeing an armadillo as you do an 100 degree day.  But, for those of you way down south and west, the Dasypus novemcinctus can be a fairly common sight. Seeing them isn’t a problem until they turn up in your yard and garden and begin to root up flowers or vegetables. I hear they can also be a threat to your backyard chicken eggs.

What to do? Well, I came across this answer to dealing with an aggressive armadillo on a message board:

“My friend Lisa, who I occasionally do a radio show with, is always a proponent of the urine approach. “That’s how everyone else in Nature does it!” says she, and you know, she’s right. Try it…

Not my usual critter in the garden but the principle remains the same. If this does not deter, try predator urines like coyote (THERE’s a job I don’t want; collecting coyote pee).

I choose to live and let, and have chosen urine as my weapon of choice – Scott”

Armadillos? We’ve got a pee for that – and it happens to be coyote urine. So, instead of trying to trap the horny, hard shelled animals – I’d rather collect pee than tangle with an armadillo – put the all natural, organic power of predator urine to work for you.

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

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

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.

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.

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!). 🙂

All Natural, Organic and Humane Raccoon Deterrent

Raccoon

Hello Again from the North Woods! Today the rains finally let up. I wish we could ship our rain to parts of the country battling forest fires! Anyway, the sun was out and everything is green, green, and green!

As you know, I often prefer to let others do the talking when it comes to PredatorPee – now politics is a different story – but nothing beats a great testimonial. This one showed up in the PeeMail –  Thank you Rhonda!

“Initially I found you on line (don’t remember which search engine, but I usually use Google) after raccoons decimated my fish pond, but I’ve been an extremely satisfied customer for quite a few years. I haven’t lost a fish
in over 4 years (to raccoons) because I use the coyote pee regularly. And when I did have one raccoon family that didn’t think coyotes were a big deal, I ratcheted up the predator to mountain lions, and I haven’t seen a
raccoon since.

However, yesterday a bear got in the pond – killing one, mangling another 30 pound koi (who is still barely alive) and slashing most of the others. The bear came back 3 times – and was scared off by me and our dogs and a water
hose. Then I marked the perimeter of our back yard (fenced, by the way)with mountain lion pee, set out some bear deterrents around the pond and waited. No bear. Didn’t show up all night, so I’m hopeful that the mountain lion pee is helping, and I just ordered more. I know it’s not a natural predator to bears, but I’m hopeful that large predators don’t like to share the same territory, because I surely don’t want the bear community to think that we have a sushi bar here.

Thanks for providing a humane way to protect my pond and still let the wild creatures make a living (somewhere besides my pond.) Best wishes, Rhonda”

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

Organic All Natural Pest Control for the Organic Grower

flowerfieldIt has been a few days since my last post. I have to say I have really been enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures. Now that it has cooled down again, I suppose it is time to return to the blogosphere. As a matter of fact, I have an announcement – Maine Outdoor Solutions LLC, owner and operator of http://www.predatorpee.com has just become a supporting member of the Maine Organic Farmers and Growers Association. As you know, our Maine-based family business has been supplying unique, natural products for pest and predator control since 1986.  We provide naturally occurring Predator Urine to organic gardeners and farmers around the world.  Becoming a supporting member of MOFGA just makes sense. In fact, I don’t know what took us so long -maybe I need to spend a little less time on the lawn mower.

A big challenge for the organic gardener and farmer is to win the battle with the crop-eating wild critters while using only the defense tools provided by nature. Predator Urine  is one of those tools. For centuries native cultures around the world have used wild animal urine to attract and repel animals during the process of hunting and trapping. The urine of a prey animal would lure another animal to a trap and the urine of a predator would keep other animals from stealing the meat from the hunt.  Anyhow, I  have created this special informational website http://www.organicallnaturalpestcontrol.com/ to show how PredatorPee can solve problems like deer, raccoons, rabbits, gophers, rodents etc. that pose a problems for anyone growing organically.

Well, as soon as the sun comes back out, I will get back to the Airstream. The camping season is fast approaching, and I am just too old for the lumpy floor of a tent. Look for a progress post soon.
