3 Tips for Using Shake-Away Animal Repellents
One of the greatest advantages of Shake-Away Animal Repellents is that they are easy to use. All you have to do is shake the granules out of the container directly on the ground around the gardens and landscaping areas you want to protect. To get the most out of your product and to protect your property from the widest range of pest animals, use these 3 tips.
1: Using Shake-Away for Burrowing Animals
Burrowing animals are especially hard to deal with and can wreak havoc on your yard and garden. Some of the most common burrowing pests are:
Shake-Away is a simpler solution than installing a fence or underground wire mesh to try to keep these pesky creatures away. When you find holes in your yard, through your flowerbeds, or throughout your vegetable garden being used by burrowing pests, place one teaspoon of Shake-Away granules directly into the hole. The predator scent created by the granules will scare your rodent invaders away.
2: Using Shake-Away Stocking Balls
Attics, crawlspaces, and sheds are vulnerable to pest invasions. Shake-Away granules are not difficult to apply to these areas, however, if you use the stocking ball method. With the Shake-Away stocking ball kit, you just have to tie off one end of a stocking, add one scoop of granules, and then tie it off on the other end.
You will need to add one stocking ball for every 100 square feet of space you want to protect from pest critters. Simply toss them into the attic or crawlspace and reapply every four to six weeks.
3: Use Shake-Away Sparingly
If you are dealing with a pest invasion, your natural tendency might be to apply tons of repellent out of frustration and desire to rid your home of the annoying critters. But for the best results, you should use Shake-Away sparingly. When you first use the repellent on your property, follow these tips:
Light sprinkle Shake-Away twice a week for two weeks.
Application should be a brief dusting, not a complete coverage of the soil.
To maintain optimal repellent effect, re-apply twice a month.
Only re-apply after rain if rainfall was especially heavy or prolonged.
Apply these tips to get the most out of your Shake-Away Animal Repellent and protect your home from invading pests.
