Are critters eating your garden? With your garden in full swing of production, the last problem you want to have is an animal destroying or eating the produce that you have been waiting all summer to harvest. These animals may not only be eating your produce but also the entire plant. If you find yourself facing this problem, you are in luck because there are animal repellents that can help.
Animal repellents come in two main types: contact or area. Contact products repel animals by making the plant taste bad whereas area products repel by making the area have an offensive smell. Using animal repellents instead of traps is a more humane way to deter pests from you garden. Birds are a bit different; you will need to use nets, spikes or bird gel to keep them away. The below chart will better help you know which repellent is best for you and your garden.
Repellents are not meant to harm the animals that they repel but to keep them away from your garden and flower bed. They work best if applied and reapplied according to the label. There are many different options for you to choose from. Now when you see animals in your garden enjoying your food more than you, you will know what to do to keep them away!
