Frequently asked Shake-Away Questions
When you use a product you need to be sure that the product is right for you and your situation. The trick is asking the right questions and getting all of your questions answered before you spend the time and money on a purchase. Knowing how the product works, how to use it, how much to use and any other concerns will help in ensuring you are spending your time and money wisely. To assist you in your decision making process we have highlighted below some of our most frequently asked Shake-Away questions.
How does shake away work?
Shake-Away is a patented blend of botanical oils derived from coyote and fox urine. After you shake the powder onto an area the scent of a predator is picked up by the pest’s keen sense of smell, communicating danger lurking nearby. Your pest’s natural instincts will persuade them to seek other, lower risk locations.
How do I use Shake-Away?
Shake-Away is a lightweight powder that can be easily applied. Just follow these simple steps:
- Locate the specific area(s) where the animals are doing damage.
- Lightly shake one (1) level tablespoon of granules every six (6) feet around the plants or in the burrows/holes.
- Heavily damaged areas may require closer applications; however, keep the portion size the same, i.e. one (1) level tablespoon.
How often do I have to re-apply Shake-Away?
Outdoor applications should be reapplied after one (1) week or after heavy rains.
Indoor applications do last longer so anticipate reapplying in two (2) to four (4) weeks. Be sure to plug any critter holes which the critters are entering after they leave.
How much will I need?
One level-tablespoon will normally provide protection up to a six (6) foot radius or twelve (12) foot diameter area.
If you are working to repel pests from inside of or under a building, one (1) tablespoon per 100 square foot area should keep you pest free.
What are Stocking Balls
Shake-Away works great inside of nylon stockings, which is perfect for indoor applications. We call these “Stocking Balls.” Simply fill a nylon stocking with the proper amount of powder and place inside buildings, under crawl spaces, or any area that is not conducive to powder applications. Use the application amount prescribed for a 100 square foot area and replace the stocking every two (2) weeks as needed.
