Plant Pro-Tec UNITS must be activated before they are clipped to
your plants or fences. The barrier
that contains the garlic odor during storage and transport must
be broken to release the repelling odor. This barrier is broken
with an Odor Release Probe
which is included in every bag of Plant Pro-Tec UNITS. This product
must be used according to the situation. Plant Pro-Tec UNITS can
be used to protect individual plants and/or to create a perimeter
around a flower bed or yard. UNITS should be clipped 2 to 3 feet
above the ground for deer and 6 to 8 inches above the ground for
rabbits. The number of UNITS needed to protect a plant or area depends
on how severe the deer or rabbit problem is! Generally, if there
are a lot of animals, if the animals have a habit of damaging your
plants, and if they really like what you are trying to protect,
more Plant Pro-Tec UNITS or whatever repellent will be needed to
protect the plant or area. To protect a plant like a rose bush that
deer really love, it may be necessary to put 3 or 4 UNITS on that
one bush. Don't let this scare you! Remember, we are talking about
a whole season of protection with only one application. On the most
vulnerable side of a perimeter, UNITS may be required every 3 to
'Rules Of Thumb' for using Plant Pro-Tec UNITS:
Pro-Tec UNITS before damage starts - it is a lot easier to prevent
damage than to stop it once it starts!
Put more UNITS
on plants or in areas where damage has occurred in the past.
Put more UNITS on plants
that deer and/or rabbits love than on other plants.
Keep some UNITS
in reserve - if more damage occurs, install more UNITS until damage
stops. If you break the habit this year, you will probably need
about one-half as many UNITS next year! The shelf life of a Plant
Pro-Tec UNIT is one or more years. If you do not need all the Plant
Pro-Tec UNITS this year, they will still be effective next year.
anytime of the year. A UNIT installed in the fall should be effective
through the next growing season. UNITS installed in the spring will
be effective through the growing season.
