Ask The PeeMan: Deer, Deer and MORE Deer

Wednesday means Ask the PeeMan – the weekly feature where The PeeMan shares questions that real customers have asked and provides his pee-rrific answers.
‘Evening-

I live in a lovely Gorham neighborhood, in the last house on a dead-end street, surrounded by woods.  For five years, I’ve had only occasional problems with deer but this year — after the lightest winter in history, go figure — it seems the word is out.  Deer are coming right up to my family room windows and have stripped a yew, a holly, and two arborvitae.  These are… *ahem* were well-established plants that have survived harsh winters and two big, rowdy dogs, so it broke my heart to see them defoliated.  I generally have a live-and-let-live attitude about these things but in this instance, there are plenty of other nutrients in the immediate area, so I didn’t see the humor AT ALL.

My question is this: there are quite a few coyotes in the surrounding area and the deer don’t seem to be in the least perturbed by their presence (or mine, or that of my loud German Shepherd).  Does this mean that I should consider using, say, wolf urine instead of coyote urine?  My personal preference would be a flame-thrower but I’m pretty sure there’s a municipal code that prohibits it… regrettably.

By the way, I came to your website by way of my vet’s recommendation.  She has chickens and relies on your products to keep them safe, which I thought was a wonderful endorsement.

Thanks in advance,

Cynthia
Cynthia,
With coyotes in the neighborhood, we do recommend going with WolfPee. It has the added benefit of not only keeping the deer away, but the coyotesherten-5 too! Here is the direct link. Thanks for finding us…send me the name of your vet, so I can thank her.

Ask the PeeMan – Fisher problem

Update! I was alerted by an observant person that the picture that I put in this post previously was a tasmanian devil not a fisher! My mistake. The PeeMan

It’s Wednesday and drum roll please . . . It’s time to Ask the PeeMan. In case you are wondering,  “The fisher is a small carnivorous mammal native to North America. It is a member of the mustelid family and a part of the marten genus. The fisher is closely related to but larger than the American marten.” – Wikipedia

Hello pee man!
I live in Massachusetts and we have a Fisher problem and some coyote. I have Bengal cats keeping them inside is impossible. I’m looking for a urine that will at least repel FisherCatthe Fisher without freaking out my cats. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Andy

Andrew,
WolfPee is what you need for fisher and coyote. If you create at “pee-rimeter” around your yard with WolfPee, it will keep the fisher and coyotes out while also keeping your cats from wandering out of your yard. Here is the link:

Ask the PeeMan: Taxing Otters

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 ?

Thanks,
Brian

A. Brian,
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:

Pee-blicity! – Juvenile humor & Capitalism

I just recently stumbled upon the article below. Finally! A journalist who actually gets me. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better write up about our company, Maine Outdoors Solutions LLC. My wife and daughters especially enjoyed the “juvenile” humor comment, and “exemplifies the essential vigor of capitalism” is just about the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me.

Thanks so much Jayson!

Enjoy the article . . .I certainly did!

A pressing problem: Which urine protects best?

By Jayson Jacoby/The Baker City Herald September 18, 2015 01:58 pm

Should I douse my wife’s garden with the urine of a wolf or a cougar?

As you can imagine, this conundrum is cutting into my sleep.

Nor are my choices, in the realm of liquid produce protection, limited to apex carnivores.

Maybe I can confuse as well as frighten the tomato-gobbling deer and the blackberry-pecking robins by sowing the place with the excretory scent of the fisher, a diminutive but apparently quite vicious type of weasel.

The online market for the liquid byproducts of wildlife micturition — animal pee, if you’d rather dispense with euphemism-by-obscure-vocabulary — is considerably more, well, voluminous than I expected.

Indeed, more than I could have imagined.

Turns out you don’t need to actually own a wolf — and possess a certain deftness with a catheter — to procure the protective powers of a predator’s urine.

An Internet connection and a credit card will bring the stuff — packed in a well-padded and leak-proof box, one would hope — to your front door.

Which saves time and, probably, a finger or two.

It was pure coincidence that introduced me to the brisk commerce in what’s generally considered a waste product.

Not long after my wife lamented the loss of her tomatoes to the neighborhood mule deer, I happened to hear, on a morning radio comedy program, a reference to “predator pee.”

I sensed a potential solution which would be simpler, albeit more aromatic, than erecting 10-foot fences.

Whether Predator Pee ranks as the most prolific purveyor of this substance I can’t say.

But its competitors would have to go a fair piece to match the Predator Pee website — http://www.predatorpee.com, of course — for sheer entertainment.

When I scroll through the site and try to imagine how it came to be, I envision a group of people sitting around a seedy apartment, tossing around ideas rather like the joke writers for Conan O’Brien or Jimmy Fallon. There’s a laptop on the kitchen table, surrounded by empty beer bottles 

and grease-stained pizza boxes, and occasionally somebody types in an especially comical line.

The humor on predatorpee.com, as you probably have guessed, lands solidly on the juvenile end of the spectrum.

Puns abound.

The best of these is “pee-rimeter” — the pest-free zone you can create by sprinkling the urine of your choice around whatever it is you want to protect.

The company’s motto, as it were, is “Bringing pee to the people since 1986.”

Remember that year the next time someone contends the Reagan era was a repressive time.

The company’s line is not limited to urine. This is something of a relief.

But even the non-pee parts of the catalog involve other animal byproducts.

The company — its official name is Maine Outdoor Solutions — also sells authentic wool crusher hats. So far as I can tell this is the outfit’s only item that involves, or requires, sheep.

Also available is BearGuard, which isn’t what you probably think it is, what with all the previous urine references.

In fact BearGuard is a water-repellent for boots. It is, however, made from “real bear fat.” I don’t doubt this keeps the rain from soaking your socks. But extracting it from the bear must be a more, well, irreversible process than collecting ursine urine. Which, rest assured, is also available if your garden marauders are particularly fearful of bears.

Jokes aside, Predator Pee exemplifies the essential vigor of capitalism, and its existence proves that in a free market pretty much anything can be turned into a profit.

Indeed, these clever iconoclasts from Maine peddle urine as a way to attract as well as repel wildlife.

Pee, the company claims, will lure butterflies, because it’s an essential source of sodium and other vital elements for these graceful flyers.

The website boasts about this with the sort of breathless enthusiasm typical of online marketing, although the insertion of a single word (the one just before “business”) transforms an otherwise predictable sentence:

“We have been in the urine business a long time, but we always get excited when we discover a new use for this incredibly renewable resource!”

You won’t read that at the Harvard Business School.

The ultimate question, of course, is how Predator Pee obtains its raw materials. I’ll leave the details to the website, but suffice it to say the explanation is mundane.

The company does not, as I had hoped, employ a battalion of short people with quick hands who can move fast even while wearing galoshes.

Coast to Coast Coyote Troubles

Greetings from the Pee Farm!

Well, the weather forecasters are predicting a good ole nor’ easter for tomorrow into Friday. Accumulation forecasts are all over the map. As usual, we will see what actually ends up on the ground when all is said and done.

coyote2smallIn the mean time, before hunkering down for the storm, I thought I would squeeze in a blog post. I know that I have posted about the coyote problem that is facing the nation many times, but it is a nuisance that is not going away, and we still haven’t sufficiently gotten the word out about the usefulness of 100% Wolf Pee in combating this situation. Below are articles from states across the nation that have been written in the past few weeks alone. They vary in tone, but they all recognize the growing threat of the coyote to small pets at the very least. One article mentions that the coyote has become the top predator since the eradication of wolf and mountain lion in some areas. Well, it stands to reason that if the wolf is a step above the coyote in the food chain, the coyote has instinctual fear of its natural predator and that is why even if the coyote has never seen a wolf, wolf urine will scare them. But, I will let you make up your own mind about that . . .

I received this testimonial in my Peemail box just today . . .

“I have used wolf urine in the past so did a google search for wolf urine as a
deterrent. searched your website also for dispensers as they are hard to find. it
has kept coyotes away from my ducks. Penny”

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.

Until I find more words(or videos). . .The PeeMan

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 . . .
