Gardening in the Mountains presents:
Using Repellents to Control Nuisance Animals in the Garden
Presenter: Phil Roudebush, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
Products promising to rid your garden of voles, rabbits, deer, raccoons, and snakes fill garden store shelves. But which to use and are they effective? In this 20-minute video, Phil outlines the various types of repellents on the market today. He steps through “best way to use” rules, product content, application methods, and safety for edibles. Phil contrasts product research and development methods with the home garden environment and actively growing plants. He leaves the viewer with an assessment of the most effective repellents and a better understanding of their usefulness.
