  • 5 Ways to Keep Deer out of Your Garden

    Deer are without a doubt some of Mother Nature’s most interesting creatures. Aside from that they are also one of the most wide spread animals in North America. No matter what part of the country you live in it is likely that you are going to see some whitetail or black tail deer. While it may be true that seeing these majestic wild animals can be thrilling but how do you keep them out of your garden? The good news is that there are natural things that you can do to keep them out.

    • The first thing that should be looked at when trying to keep deer out of your yard is quite simple. Plant a natural barrier of perennials that will keep the deer out, such as strongly scented herbs like garlic, chives, mint and lavender.
    • Another viable option is employing the use of hot pepper spray, use hot chilis or create a “pepper spray” if you will and coat plants that you have a hard time keeping the deer from eating. Don’t worry though, since you are using natural ingredients it will not harm the animals. If they do eat it, they will be fine but they will experience the unpleasant sensation of a burning mouth.
    • Let your dog mark the area around your garden. Dogs are a natural predator for deer. Allowing your dog to mark the areas around your garden will make the deer think that there is a predator in the area. This will go a very long way towards keeping the deer out.
    • Do NOT feed the deer, a lot of people think it is nice to put corn or deer feed out. This is very counterproductive, when you put feed out for the deer you are encouraging them to come into your yard. If you ever run out or decide to stop feeding them, they are going to make a beeline for your garden.
    • The “buck” stops here! The last method we want to take a look at is the use of natural pest control products meant for deer. Products like Repellex ready to use deer and rabbit repellent will be extremely effective at keeping deer out of your garden. These products are all natural and they are safe to have around pets and children. They use nothing but natural repellents such as bloodmeal that give the illusion of a predator in the area, they also use essential oils to give the plants an unpleasant smell and taste to the deer.

    There is nothing you can do that is cut and dry for keeping deer out of the garden. The fact is that deer are living animals and different things are going to work better or worse depending on the area that you live in. The best thing to do is try different things and see what works best for the deer in your area.

  • 7 Tips for a Gopher Free Backyard

    gopher-animated

    Have gophers dedicated your backyard as their neighborhood playground? Do you need to know how to get rid of gophers naturally?

    1. Gophers are sound-sensitive. Aggravate the little dickens by installing gopher-chaser windmills. Continuous vibrations emitted by windmill blades travel underground via the hollow support rod. Add pops of color to your backyard with several windmills. This is an eco-friendly way to color gophers gone!
    2. Due to their heightened sense of smell try introducing scents gophers don't like. Stinky fish scraps or castor oil will incite gophers to skedaddle. Pack their escape holes with fish scraps. Or, Scatter castor oil granules in your backyard.
    3. Getting rid of gophers may also be accomplished with road flares. Dig into a mound to get to their tunnel. Light the flare, push the lit end into the tunnel and cover with soil. The smoke contains sulfur and gophers will scurry out of offensive smelling tunnels expediently.
    4. Gopher Spurge or Euphorbia lathysis is commonly used for getting rid of gophers. To purge your backyard of these furry pests, plant several. Roots and stems contain a caustic milk-like liquid, which signals gophers to vamoose. The plant itself grows tall and handsome. Note: Gopher Spurge is poisonous. Generally gophers will not ingest enough to kill them, but the possibility exists.
    5. Traps are old-fashioned, yet frequently, old ways are the best ways. However, so that you won't defeat your planet-friendly intentions, ensure you buy non-lethal traps. For best results, place a trap at the entrance and exit of the tunnel. When the pesky rodent goes inside the trap, the door automatically closes. Once he's "trapped", take gopher, cage and all, to a distant location and set him free.
    6. Used coffee grounds act as a natural gopher disincentive. Deposit coffee grounds in all the holes gophers have burrowed in your backyard. Liberally spread any surplus coffee grounds on your entire yard, as they make a marvelous natural fertilizer.
    7. This method is not for everyone, but it's possible to co-exist with the little critters. Simply allow the furthest corner of your backyard to grow wild with weeds. Gophers adore weeds and will live happily ever after in their little corner of the world.

  • 7 Tips for Growing Plants in Your Garden

    Amazing Mole Repellent

    Gardening puts us back in touch with nature on a personal level. We protect and care for our plants with the hopes of a bountiful harvest of such rewards as flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs. The only way to realize this type of harvest, though, is by knowing the right tips to make it happen. Below are 7 tips to grow plants successfully in your garden.

    1. Select the plants first before the area for the garden. Why is this? All the plants that you place in a given area need a similar amount of sunlight for one thing. For example, corn, beans, and other vegetables need full sun, for the most part, to realize optimum growth so you can place them in the same garden area. Marigolds also enjoy full sun, but host as grow better in shady areas, and this means that you would not place these two plants in the same area.

    2. Locate the garden in the right area of the yard for the plants you plan to grow in it. Analyze how much sun the area gets during the morning and afternoon to ensure that your plants receive sufficient sun for their needs. Ideally, the area should receive the sun during from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Shady areas are fine if they are in the hottest part of the day in the late afternoon, as long as the plants receive enough sun by then each day.

    4. Prepare the garden area by loosening the soil so the plant roots can easily seek out moisture and nutrients. On top of this, the soil needs various amendments to ensure it is rich in nutrients. Take a soil sample to your local extension service and it will test it free for you so you can know which nutrients you need to add to the soil. Nutrients are easy to add with compost or commercial fertilizers. Work either one thoroughly into your soil. The same procedure here works for either traditional or organic gardening. Just make sure the additives are right for an organic garden.

    5. If you plan to start your garden from seed, plant the seeds inside about 6 weeks prior to the last frost in your area. You will need to harden off the seedlings you harvest before transplanting them outside. Flowers, vegetables and even fruit trees come in seedling form in garden centers, and are ready to plant straight in the ground. Seedlings should be healthy or avoid them. Seeds and seedlings both should be certified organic when you select to garden organically.

    6. Group plants together that have similar water and nutrient needs. Caring for your plants will be easier when you do this. Each plant will come with instructions on how deep the individual holes need to be for planting just follow the directions. Water plants once you backfill in the holes.

    7. If you are like most gardeners, you will now have to protect your plants from various pests in your garden, including dogs, cats and squirrels. Luckily, there are natural products that will prevent these animals and others from damaging your plants.

    Visit Repellex for more information on 100% natural Dog and Cat, Squirrel, and other types of animal repellents suitable for gardens, lawns, flowers, fruits and vegetables.

These pests can be difficult to get rid of and if not controlled properly they can return. So most people want to learn how to get rid of gophers naturally and safely without chemicals or pesticides.

    There are many methods that have been used for gopher control. Some people try trapping them while others try to flood them out. This does not work because not only do gophers build tunnels they also have burrows. They build their burrows higher than their tunnels. So if you are trying to run water through they will just sit in their borough and watch the water run downstream through their tunnel. This is not very effective.

    Poison of course is another method that uses harmful pesticides and chemicals. Poison does work but leaves harmful residue on plants and the soil. It can also be very harmful to children. A very effective and safe way to go is to use a repellent product that contains no harmful pesticides or chemicals and is made from plant based materials.

    These products especially in their granular forms do an excellent job of controlling gophers as well as moles. Unlike moles that have very visible tunnels and eat earthworms and grubs, gophers eat plants and it is rare that you see their tunnels. You will see their gopher mounds however that have a hole on the side and are fan shaped.

    If you are using natural granule products they are easy to apply. You can use a spreader to disperse the granules over the parts of the yard that have been particularly damaged. As the granules begin to dissolve slowly with water they release a scent. With their ingredients of castor oil, garlic, cinnamon, and white pepper, the smell can be very effective in sending the gophers away.

    Be sure you treat your garden beds and your lawn keeping in mind that you want to direct the gophers to the nearest exit. You can start by treating a third of the area. A few days later treat the second third and then a few days after that the final section of your property. The key is to be sure that you get enough coverage throughout the yard.

    You can achieve this by broadcasting the granules as lightly and evenly as possible by hand or you can use a hand held spreader that is set at its lowest dispersion rate. A conventional broadcast spreader can be used as well.

    It can be an easy solution if you want to learn how to get rid of gophers. Having the right plant based natural product that is safe and free from chemicals and pesticides is all you need to send your gophers scurrying.

  • Want to Get Rid of Voles? Don't Make a Mountain Out of a Vole Hill!

    vole on rock

    Voles are so cute. They look like little mice with small ears and twitching whiskers. However, the damage they do can be devastating. They can make quick work of your vegetable garden, leaving you with nothing for all your hard work. They are tiny eating machines. They sneak into your strawberry beds and stuff themselves! They build underground burrows so you never actually see them, only the havoc they wreak. Voles are insidious little creatures. There are telltale signs that you have been invaded if you know what to look for. Many inexplicable holes in your yard or garden is one indication. Furrows in your flower bed is another.

    There are chemicals on the market that you can spray on or around your plants or worse pour into the ground to kill the little fellows. There are also little miniature bombs available to smoke them out. The theory is that they will object to the smoke and move away permanently. Do they work? I couldn't tell you. Are they environmentally safe? The words chemical and bomb would indicate probably not.

    The most humane way to get rid of voles is to convince them that they don't want to live here anymore. I'm pretty sure that a sit down conference with the leader of the vole community is not in your future. With that said, the most effective and environmentally safe solution is Repellex.

    Repellex Mole and Gopher Repellant also gets rid of voles. It is safe and effective while at the same time, will not harm the animal you are trying to deter. Repellex is a unique method of pest control in that it utilizes natural, plant-based formulas to combat a variety of pests. The formula to get rid of voles is available in granular, liquid or systemic tablets. The tablets deliver a hot pepper concentrate directly to the soil and roots of plants. This does not affect the plants other than making them unpleasant tasting. As a result, the vole has a decidedly unpleasant dining experience and finds it best to move on to a tastier yard or garden. The liquid formula is conveniently applied with your hose end sprayer for coverage of large areas. The granular product is spread on the ground, watered in and you are done.

  • Force Your Gopher Friends to Move Out!

    safe and efficient

    Gophers are about the size of a squirrel and live underground. They create large underground tunnels that can cover entire meadows if left unchecked. Gopher infestations can be easily spotted by the large dirt mounds they leave at the entrance of their tunnels. Gophers eat earthworms and grubs but will also eat roots, vegetables, legumes, leafy plants, and grains. They also reproduce rapidly. To the dismay of many homeowners, young gophers prefer to use old tunnels, so even after adult gophers leave the area, many times their offspring will return.

    Gophers are known as pests in most areas due to their elaborate tunnel systems and their destruction on vegetation. Often their tunnels are dug in the middle of a yard or landscaping leaving large unsightly mounds of dirt. By tearing through roots and eating crops, they are also known to destroy large amounts of vegetation in a short amount of time. Large crops have been lost and back yards have been destroyed overnight by these furry pests.

    To get rid of gophers, quick action must be taken before they reproduce and dig more tunnels. Preventing gophers from infesting further is the key to successful control. Many solutions to killing these rodents involve anything from blowing up a tunnel to drowning them with water. Not only are these solutions inhumane, but they are likely going to be ineffective. Due to their elaborate tunnel systems, gophers are likely nowhere near the spot you are trying to poison. Gophers are very timid animals and will most likely run deep into their burrows when they sense your presence. If you leave your scent anywhere near a piece of bate, the gopher will not take it.

    This is where Repellex enters the picture. Repellex is an all-natural product that repels gophers and other burrowing animals. You can get rid of gophers by applying Repellex to your lawn or garden. Once your plants take up the hot pepper concentrate in this product, the animal becomes repulsed by the taste and begins finding a new source of food away from the area you have treated.

    Once Repellex has worked to encourage your furry friends to move out, you should remember that gophers are known to return to places where old tunnels exist. Repellex lasts for 4 to 6 weeks, so consider reapplying multiple times after the gophers are gone to ensure that they don’t come back. Don’t be surprised if gopher activity increases during the first 7 days of treatment. This is a sign that the treatment is working, and the gophers are moving out!
