Bobbex Deer and Rabbit Repellent
All natural, safe and proven effective, Bobbex Deer and Rabbit Repellent is the most effective, long lasting deer repellent on the market. It is a topical foliar spray which prevents deer, elk and moose from bedding down, rubbing, and foraging damage to all trees, shrubs, and ornamentals. The active ingredients in Bobbex are a series of proteins making the product extremely safe for use on the most sensitive plantings. These ingredients are harmless to all wildlife including humans, pets, birds and aquatic life. Bobbex is environmentally friendly, using only natural ingredients that WILL NOT WASH OFF.
Dried eggs are only one source of the taste/odor repelling ingredients in Bobbex. In addition to the eggs, Bobbex uses other proteins: fish meal, fish oil, meat meal, and two non-protein repellent ingredients added for odor control – garlic and castor oil.
The key to Bobbex’s success is the use of proteins and the redundancy of protein repellent ingredients. Most repellents use one to three repellent ingredients, Bobbex uses six. Bobbex is classified as a fear repellent. Deer, being herbivores, are naturally repulsed and frightened by protein smells. The smell is unpleasant to the deer and scares them away. This is one reason why the product is so effective. The combination and multiple redundancy of repelling ingredients make Bobbex a superior product over competitors.
Bobbex works by smell and taste aversion, can be applied in almost any climate or temperature and will not wash off after heavy rain. Bobbex contains an extremely effective sticking agent that will last through several heavy rains. The fish oil used in the product allows the product, once dried on plants, to be water insoluble. Bobbex dries clear leaving a slight odor whichwill dissipate within 24 hours of application. Humans will no longer smell it, but deer will. Bobbex will not burn plant material.
Bobbex has been independently tested by the State of Connecticut Department of Forestry and Horticulture and found to be more effective than any other similar products in the Canadian market. (* See Effectiveness of Bobbex vs Other Repellents)
