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:

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!

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 . . .

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!

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

Returning PredatorPee Customer:

“I’ve ordered from your company in the past and at that time it was by ‘word of
mouth’. If this order works as expected you will be getting orders from my
neighbors as there is a deer problem.” Laurene

New PredatorPee Customers:

“I used Google search engine and typed in Coyote Pee. I got several items in
a list but thought your product sounded as the best way for me to apply it.
I am having trouble with squirrels eating my rosebushes and deer eating my
hydrangeas. I look forward to receiving my order . . .  and getting rid of the problems.” Marie

“i heard about you guys through yahoo answers. someone on that blog recommended your site!” Glen

What more can I say?

PS On the home front, I stumbled upon a trout fishing spot just miles from my home. I caught a fish on every cast, and went home after an hour because I was all tuckered out! My son-in-law enjoyed two of them as his breakfast this morning.  Hope the sun is shining and the fish are biting where you are!

How to Protect Chickens in Vermont? PeeMan Q&A

Hello Again! Here are some the questions I have been getting in email lately.

Q. I live in a rural area in Vermont and I have a few chickens. I have seen coyotes, bears, raccoons, skunks, weasels, neighborhood dogs and a fisher. What would you recommend to protect the chickens from all of these? (I dohave electric poultry netting, but coyotes could jump over and weasels can go through). I’m concerned about attracting one predator while trying to deter another. For instance, if I use coyote urine to keep away the weasels, will it attract coyotes?

A. WolfPee would be my choice for this wide variety of predators. 

Q. I just ordered some fox pee to inhibit squirrels from chewing wires and trying to nest in my car engine compartment. How do I store the pee and for how long can I store it to use? Thank you.

A. Room temp is fine, should be good for at least 2 years.

Q. Is there anything I can use to deter a mountain lion? There was one in the woods out back of my house and today we discovered some scat right outside our dog pen which is attached to the house. We have 3 small pomeranians that go out a few times a day. We just moved here in the catskills, ny.

Thank you for any info you can give me

A. WolfPee should be the best option for you. 

As you can see, my inbox is always full of interesting questions. As you can also see, I don’t tend to send flowery responses. KISS – keep it simple stupid – is a motto I like to follow. Plus, I’d rather be outside than in front of the computer. But, as long as duty calls, the PeeMan will continue to provide answers for all those urgent PeeMails. Have a good one!
