"Fool" a Deer and Start Protecting Your Garden April 1st

HAMDEN, Conn., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It's no joke that deer love to feast on the tender new plants that emerge in the spring, but there's no better time than April 1st to begin protecting your garden by fooling potential problem animals like deer and rabbits.  

"There's no better way to 'fool' a deer out of your garden than to trigger their natural fear instinct, and Shake-Away products take advantage of this defense mechanism to keep deer away from your valuable plantings," said Bob Reynolds, Shake-Away, Inc., CEO.  "A deer's sense of smell is 1/3 stronger than that of a dog, and by using coyote urine granules, Shake-Away recreates this predator scent, which naturally deters them from the area where it is applied."  

Reynolds described that while there are different ways to discourage deer and prevent them from entering your yard, Shake-Away research found the easiest and most-effective way is to take advantage of the predator-prey relationship animals have.

"Most people don't realize that the average adult white-tailed deer needs more than five pounds of food a day," Reynolds added.  "If gardeners don't begin thinking about how to protect their gardens, then their yards can become victims of this feast."

As the only maker of EPA-registered predator-scent animal repellents, Shake-Away uses 100 percent non-toxic predator urine granules, such as coyote or fox granules, that cause prey animals to instinctively leave an area where they detect a predatory threat.  When using the product, there is no obnoxious sulfur smell or any need to mix or spray liquids.  Shake-Away products are 100 percent natural and certified organic with no lingering yard or garden odor that is detectible by humans.
