Bobbex Deer and Rabbit should be used year-round.
Spring – Begin spraying with Bobbex Deer and Rabbit Repellent when the plants are approximately 1 cm out of the ground. Application interval should be increased in the spring due to the rapid growth of plants. Spray every 10 to 14 days or every 5 cm of new plant growth, since new growth is unprotected.
Remember only what is covered with Bobbex is protected. As plants continue to grow, it is important to reapply to the new growth.
Summer – Bobbex Deer and Rabbit Repellent should be sprayed in the cooler part of the day such as the early morning. Phytotoxicity, causing damage to plants, may occur if sprayed when temperatures are above 30° C. This is not due to the ingredients in the product, but rather the magnification of the sun through the water on the plant’s surface.
Fall/Winter – Bobbex Deer and Rabbit Repellent is designed to be used year-round even if plants are no longer at their peak. If the application is interrupted, deer and rabbit may lose their conditioning to avoid previously treated plants. Regular application of Bobbex will ensure deer and rabbit continue to forage elsewhere than in your garden.
Use Bobbex in the fall and winter months to prevent damage to shrubs that keep their leaves throughout the year, such as rhododendrons, arborvitae, holly, and yews. The last three are some of the most preferred forage plant material by deer. It is important to apply to non-evergreen shrubs to avoid damage to bark caused by rabbits.
Ensure that temperature is above 2° C when applying. This will prevent water freezing on leaves and drawing out the moisture from the leaf which may cause browning along leaf edges. These cautionary recommendations apply to all water-based horticultural products.
