Wednesday means Ask the PeeMan – the weekly feature where The PeeMan shares questions that real customers have asked and provides his pee-rrific answers.
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* werewell-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.
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 the Fisher without freaking out my cats. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Andy
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 ?
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!)

Wednesday is back and so is “Ask the PeeMan” – this week’s question is tricky but not too tough for the The PeeMan. Enjoy.
Q. Hey there!
I’ve recently started “taking care” of a stray cat. We built him a house outside and I give him a meal twice a day. I want him to stay.
I’m now finding a little band of other cats hanging around my yard. They gotta go! I was looking at your feral cat product , but. …if I use that to chase off the unwanted cats, will the cat I want to stay hit the road as well when he smells the predator pee?
It you apply it in the right way at the right time, WolfPee will both keep your resident cat close by and the others away. When the favored cat is in its house, create the “pee-rimeter” around your yard according to the directions at this link: http://www.predatorpeestore.com/Application-Instructions.html
It should keep your cat from wandering and the others from entering…and be sure not to leave the food out when your cat is not eating.
