Frequently Asked Questions

 

How often do you need to spray?

Generally the spring-summer-fall season starts in mid-April and last to September, then the winter spray is required from October through April. The Spraying is usually done once a month during the spring-summer-fall season. However, it is necessary to spray twice in May; as there is new plant growth that needs to be protected. For the winter season; One application is applied starting sometime in October and lasting into May, where the product then breaks down.

Will the product keep deer out of my yard?

No, the spray will not keep deer out of the yard, but it will keep the deer from eating your landscaping. Also, when you take the food source away from the deer they will generally spend most of there time elsewhere, where they can find food.

Is the product safe?

Yes, the summer spray is a blood-based product with a few other ingredients that the deer dislike.

Is the product good for my plants?

Very much so! Blood is used in organic fertilizers, such as blood meal, most plants become very healthy in a few months if they're not already.

Does the product smell bad?

Sometimes, it is an all natural product that does decompose ecspecially in the extreme summer heat, but we have modified the product and have made some changes so the spray should not offend anyone, except the deer. For the first 6-8 hours, you will experience a slight odor, similar to garlic.

What happens if you sprayed my yard and it rains a short time later? Do I have to pay for another application?

Absolutely not. We try to spray your plants when we have plenty of day time, about 12-24 hours but that is not always possible with Cleveland weather.
