When and How to Apply Bobbex
When and How to Use Bobbex Repellents.
Bobbex Repellents are easy-to-apply, topical sprays that can and should be used year-round on all types of ornamentals, trees and shrubs. Bobbex should not be used on food plants when fruits, vegetables or herbs are already developed. Application can continue up to the point where the fruit develops on the plant.
Because Bobbex Repellents are a “topical protection” solution, they need to be reapplied as needed to maintain protection on all stem, flower, leaf, and bud growth. During peak growth seasons, application of Bobbex Repellents should be done about every 2 weeks, or when one to two inches of new growth has developed. During dormant seasons (usually winter) when plant growth is greatly reduced or halted, Bobbex Repellents will endure much longer, and less frequent application is required
All Bobbex Repellents include dual mixing and application instructions. Following these instructions will deliver optimum results throughout the year.
Shake all Bobbex products well before using to ensure even ingredient mixture. If using a Concentrate, mix with water according to seasonal instructions. Using a pressure sprayer (or the built-in sprayer that some Ready-to-Use Bobbex Repellents come with), coat all viewable plant surfaces to be protected. This includes stems leaves, flowers, and buds. Note: Before spraying, make sure the plants are dry. Bobbex will not stick well to wet surfaces.
Once applied, Bobbex will require approximately 6 hours of drying time to adequately adhere to plant surfaces. The product will dry clear, and any unpleasant smells will quickly dissipate to where they are undetectable to humans.
Begin by spraying in the Spring when the plants are approximately ½ inch out of the ground.
Bobbex should be sprayed in the early morning hours rather than the extreme heat of the day. If sprayed when temperatures are above 85 degrees F, plants may encounter phytotoxicity. This is not due to the ingredients in the product, but rather the magnification of the sun through the water spread on plant’s surfaces. During Peak Growth season, application of Bobbex Repellents should be done about every 7 to 14 days, or when one to two inches of new growth has developed.
Bobbex should be used in fall months even though plants are no longer at their peak. If applications of Bobbex are interrupted, deer may lose their conditioning to avoid previously treated plants. Regular spraying of Bobbex trains deer to seek nourishment elsewhere. Bobbex is necessary in the fall (and winter) months for damage prevention to shrubs that keep their leaves throughout the year. These shrubs include rhododendrons, arborvitae, holly, and yews— all common plants that deer prefer the most!
Winter application should not be done below 35 degrees F. Water freezing on leaves can draw out moisture, harming the plant and causing browning along leaf edges. (This cautionary recommendation should be followed for all water based horticultural products.) During winter (dormant) season, Bobbex Repellents will endure much longer, (up to two months) so less frequent application is required.
