Will I Must Garden Repellent keep the deer/rabbits off my property?
I Must Garden Repellents are designed to make your plants smell and taste bad to deer and rabbits. Regular spraying with I Must Garden Repellents will make your property less inviting and when the deer learn that there's nothing tasty, they'll look for alternate paths. The rabbits will soon find other things to eat, not your beautiful protected flowers. Other than an eight foot high fence, we know of nothing that will keep the deer completely OFF your property.
What's the best time to apply the repellent?
The best time to spray is in the morning and later in the afternoon or evening. Spraying in the heat of the day and in direct sunlight exposes plants to the possibility of burning. Good gardening practice recommends NOT spraying in direct sunlight and NOT spraying during the hottest time of the day.
Does it matter if the leaf surface of my plants are dry when I spray?
Yes, plants should be dry when spraying to allow the all natural stickers of I Must Garden Deer Repellent to adhere onto the plants. If the plants are wet, either from the morning dew or rainfall, the products will not adhere as well to the plant's surface.
Can I use I Must Garden Deer Repellent to keep rabbits away?
While many companies will try and convince you that their products work for a wide ranging variety of animals our tests have shown that targeted formulas are much more effective. We've had customers tell us our deer repellent works but they've also reported that our targeted rabbit repellent was much more effective.
Can I water my plants after I spray with I Must Garden Repellent?
You should let I Must Garden Repellents thoroughly dry at least one hour before watering your plants. Likewise, you should spray your plants at least one hour before rainfall.
We just moved into a house in which the previous owners did nothing to discourage the deer from eating the shrubs. Will I have any success with I Must Garden Deer Repellent since the deer are used to eating everything in my yard?
There’s no doubt about it, you have more of a challenge than if the deer never discovered your yard. This situation is addressed by spraying your plants immediately with I Must Garden Deer/Rabbit Repellent You may even want to spray areas surrounding your plants with I Must Garden Deer/Rabbit Repellent to add an even greater barrier to your new plants. There's also no doubt about it, you CAN protect your plants, just use I Must Garden Repellents and watch your garden grow like never before.
How often do I need to apply I Must Garden Repellents?
I Must Garden Repellents are formulated to stick on your plants and stay there for as long as 100 days. As plants grow, every two inches of new leaf, bud and plant growth must be protected. Since it can be difficult to keep track of individual plant growth, many people just get in the habit of spraying twice a month. Once plants are truly dormant, your spray schedule can relax to up to every 100 days. Depending on your situation, if animal pressure is intense, you may want to touch up more often. The best practice is to monitor your plants and adjust your spraying routine accordingly.
Do I have to reapply the repellent after it rains?
Once dry, I Must Garden Repellent is long lasting and won't wash off. However, in time, rain, sun and general exposure to the elements will break down the natural oils and stickers and I Must Garden Repellent will need to be reapplied. We've tested our products thoroughly and have seen protection last up to 100 days! You can also try spraying the underneath areas of leaves to protect the spray from rain and sun.
Is there any danger to over spraying with I Must Garden Deer Repellent?
No, I Must Garden Deer Repellent will not harm your plants.
