Learn non-toxic control strategies for keeping animal pests out of your yard and gardens.
Dogs, cats and other animals can cause considerable damage. Homeowners often find themselves dealing with neighborhood pets digging, urinating and defecating in their lawns, gardens and landscaped areas. Nuisance animals can wreak havoc on garbage containers and may also be harmful to livestock, poultry and wildlife. Cats are extremely effective hunters and can seriously deplete natural populations of song birds.
The most effective remedy to keep animals out of your garden and off your lawn is the sharply spoken word backed up with disciplinary action. For most effective results, use the following suggestions in conjunction with training.
Fencing – Placing a barrier around your gardens, landscaped areas and flower beds may prevent entry. Dogs will often respect the boundary of a fence. However, cats and other animals can easily jump them — make sure fences are high enough to prevent entry.
Scare Devices – Motion sensor devices that spray water are often used to repel animals. The Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler catches marauding pest animals off guard and scares them away!
Clean Up – Stray animals are frequently attracted to areas where urine or feces have been deposited. Remove droppings when they are first noticed.
Commercial Repellents – Repellents are a cruelty-free way of keeping animals away from your yard and garden. The all natural repellents we offer at Planet Natural are safe to you and the environment and deter nuisance animals by smell and/ or taste.
