Animal Repellents

Liquid Fence - Deer & Rabbi Repellent

Liquid Fence’s all natural formula is designed to offer you year-round protection from deer. Unlike some other deer and rabbit repellents that require the animals to browse to be effective, Liquid Fence works on scent. Deer don’t even have to take a bite to be repelled.

Made from putrescent whole egg solids and garlic (among other things) the smell repels deer and rabbits for weeks, but to our less sensitive noses, the smell dissipates within a couple of hours. It is environmentally safe, biodegradable and non-toxic. Safe for flowering plants and vegetables. We carry the 32 oz ready to use spray, and the concentrate version.

Messina Deer Stopper - l & ll

Messina has come up with two formulas that not only stop deer from grazing in your yard, but that actually smell good! Made primarily from essential oils (one is rosemary & mint oil, and the other is cinnamon & clove oil) both formulas are organic and safe for use on all flowers, shrubs, vegetable gardens (just rinse before eating) and ornamental or young trees. The spray dries clear and will not burn plants, but since it is made from oils, I wouldn't spray plants in the heat of the day, just to be sure!

Insect, Mite & Disease Control

NATRIA® Insect, Disease & Mite Control

This naturally occurring pesticide is derived from dried chrysanthemum flowers and provides the 3 in 1 knock-out punch for insects and mites & fungal diseases like powdery mildew. This is a broad spectrum insecticide and will kill most bugs it comes into contact with.

NATRIA® Insecticidal Soap

This organic insecticidal soap penetrates insects' cuticles, which dries out pests it comes into contact with. In general, soap sprays are effective for soft-bodied insects including aphids. Insecticidal soap is a contact killer, meaning you must spray the pest directly to be effective. It dries quickly and will not harm beneficial insects that visit the plant later in the day. Spray in the morning or late evening when beneficials, such as bees are not as active.

NATRIA® Disease Control

  

A bacteria contained in NATRIA® Disease Control disrupts diseases by preventing fungal spores from germinating. This organic spray works best as a preventive treatment – start applying it as soon as you see any disease. You can harvest treated vegetables the same day you apply this product.

NATRIA® Neem Oil

From the oils of the Neem tree, this spray is great for use on roses, flowers, fruits and vegetables. It controls aphids, whiteflies and spider mites as well as diseases like black spot, rust and powdery mildew and can be used right up to the day of harvest.

Neem is safer for bees and other pollinators because it must be ingested to be effective. Only chewing and sucking insects are affected. However, any oil spray can smother and suffocate insects, so please use first thing in the morning or late in the evening, when the good bugs are least active. That way you won't hit any bees or other beneficial insects directly. The neem oil spray will dry before they land on the plants, and only the insects trying to eat your plants will die. Neem is a natural oil so it can burn plant leaves if sprayed in the heat of the day, so again, early morning or later afternoon are the best times for application.

Harris Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such aphids, ants or earwigs) the microscopic glass-like sharp edges of the DE cut them up and they dry out and die. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can even eat it. It’s composed of 100% ground freshwater DE, with no additives. The remains of the fresh water algae making up DE are ground up into a soft, fine white powder that carries many different uses. It’s chemical free and completely safe to use around children and pets. It is most effective when dry, so apply to plants after you have watered for the day.
