Squirrels are chewers and this can cause a host of problems including damage to birdfeeders, decks, and even building structures. The most destructive damage occurs when they chew on electrical power lines. It has been well documented that their chewing habits have caused fires. Squirrels’ teeth grow continuously. Their incisors will grow six inches per year, but stay short due to the constant wear they receive by chewing. Squirrels cause damage by nesting in buildings, digging in lawns, eating ornamental plants and bulbs, and stealing food from bird feeders.
Squirrels eat nuts, leaves, roots, seeds, and plants. They may uproot plants in your flower boxes and flower gardens attempting to bury nuts and seeds. Squirrels hide their extra nuts in the soil, under logs, and under leaves in “stores”. Then they hunt for them when they get hungry, following the smell of good food buried in nice soft soil, and they just naturally dig there. You can prevent some of this digging by spraying BOBBEX-R Animal Repellent.
How to identify damage from a squirrel:
Damage may occur in your lawn and gardens due to pilfering squirrels uprooting your plants and flowers. Look for chew marks on your deck and home structure as well.
How to spray BOBBEX-R to deter squirrels:
Bobbex-R Animal Repellent is a foliar spray. Apply directly on the leaf, stem, and root system of the plant. Spraying on and around your flowerboxes may also be a deterrent. Be sure to soak the root system of the plant. Spraying Bobbex-R on your birdfeeders may also help to deter the squirrels from stealing your birdseed. Remember, BOBBEX-R Animal Repellent is all natural, environmentally friendly, and will not harm humans, pets, birds or aquatic life. Most importantly, it will not wash off!
Bobbex-R Animal Repellent makes a great bulb dip program to prevent burrowing squirrels from smelling and discovering your wintered bulbs. Using Bobbex-R as a bulb protector will give your bulbs a chance to survive when first planted and throughout the winter. Squirrels use their keen sense of smell to find roots and bulbs underground. Bobbex-R creates an aromatic barrier around the bulb and prevents these animals from discovering the bulb. Simplyfollow these instructions:
Remove all loose and dried plant tissue around the bulbs
Dip bulbs in straight concentrated Bobbex-R Animal Repellent (right out of the bottle). Allow bulbs to soak for 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove bulbs from concentrate and allow them to air dry.
Bobbex-R Animal Repellent comes in 2 formulas:
Ready to Use Spray; easy to use, no mixing, no mess
Concentrated Spray; mix with water into a pressurized sprayer
Easy-to-use Bobbex-R, small animal repellent formulation, is all natural, environmentally friendly and safe for use in protecting ornamental plantings in landscapes and gardens. The product is proven effective and works through the use of smell and taste aversion.
Bobbex-R can be used in any weather and will not burn plants or wash off regardless of rain, snow or watering. This product can be used on low lying vegetation, flower beds, gardens and is recommended as a bulb-dip to deter underground damage after planting. It can also be sprayed at the mouth of burrows and holes to prevent animal re-entry. Bobbex-R is safe to humans, pets, birds and aquatic life, and contains no petro chemicals.
Bobbex-R will also help protect plantings from reduced moisture content during periods of water reduced weather conditions. In winter, cold weather, blustery winds and frozen soil reduce plant’s ability to absorb moisture needed to maintain vitality. Bobbex-R provides retention of moisture in plantings through periods of frigid weather, reduces damage from late spring or early fall frost and decreases the desiccating effects of a hot summer day.
