What formulation of Plantskydd is best for me?


Plantskydd Deer Repellant is a Proven, Effective Protection for Garden Plants and Shrubs from Deer, Elk, Moose, Opossum, and Rabbit.  Plantskydd Deer Repellant is considered the most cost-effective and environmentally safe animal repellant available.  Plantskydd is accepted and used by leading forest companies, nurseries, private woodlot owners, landscapers, and home gardeners, as well as State/Provincial and National Conservation agencies.

Plantskydd Deer Repellant was initially developed in Sweden in 1991 in response to commercial forest plantations being decimated by plant eating mammals.  The forest industry needed an animal repellant that could last through severe weather and meet Sweden's strict environmental laws.  Plantskydd's long-term effectiveness is attributable to the tenacity of its 100% natural, vegetable oil binder in sticking to plants, even under severe snow/rainfall conditions: up to 6 months over winter, 3-4 months in summer.  The Swedish name for the product "Plantskydd" translates as "Plant Protection".

Plantskydd Deer Repellant works by emitting an odor that animals associate with predator activity, repelling the animal before it nibbles on plants.  Research has proven that odor-based repellants are more effective than other repellant systems where the animal needs to taste treated plants before being repelled. Once animals are attracted to an area and begin feeding, it is more difficult to discourage them from returning.  Plantskydd stimulates a fear-based response which will have deer, elk, moose, opossum, and rabbits looking to dine somewhere other than your garden or plantation.

Plantskydd Deer Repellant is the browse deterrent of choice for leading North American forest companies who use it to successfully prevent plantation damage by deer, rabbits, elk and moose to millions of conifer and hardwood trees, including: cedar, spruce, fir, pine, alder, birch, larch and poplar species.  Many customers have provided positive anecdotal feedback as to the effectiveness of Plantskydd in protecting plants against other herbivores (plant eating mammals).

Plantskydd Deer Repellant is made in the USA, is a 100% natural, environmentally friendly product, is 'Listed' by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), and is member tested and recommended by the National Home Gardening Club.

Nurseries and landscapers find Plantskydd Deer Repellant to be equally effective in protecting flowers, shrubs, and ornamentals.

Plantskydd's Development:

Plantskydd Deer Repellant was first developed in Sweden in 1991 in response to commercial forest plantations being decimated by deer, moose and rabbits. The forest industry needed an animal repellant that could last through severe weather and meet Sweden's strict environmental laws.

Plantskydd's effectiveness as a long lasting animal browse repellant was substantiated in Field Trials 1991-1994 and the results published in the Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research - J. Berquist & G. Olander, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences - ASA Forest Research Station, 1996.



100% Natural

Plantskydd powder concentrate is listed by the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI) for use in production of organic food and fibre.

Plantskydd is exempt from federal EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) pesticide registration. Plantskydd contains no synthetic additives, is non-toxic and is not harmful to animals, plants or the environment.

The 'active' ingredient is dried bloodmeal — recognized by the EPA as an environmentally safe ingredient.

In the United States, *bloodmeal* is an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) exempted product/minimum risk pesticide and is exempt from the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act requirements, specifically under Section 25(b) c.f. Federal Register, 61(45), Mar. 6, 1996 and therefore is not subject to federal registration.

"The EPA has determined ... that the use of these pesticides poses insignificant risks to human health or the environment ...
"The Agency in promulgating this rule, is responding to society's increasing demand for more natural and benign methods of pest control ... "
May 6, 1996 USA — EPA

In Canada and the United States, Plantskydd's effectiveness as an animal browse deterrent has been confirmed since 1994 in Operational Level Field Trials undertaken by large forest industry Cooperators on millions of conifer and deciduous trees of various species.

It is now considered the most cost-effective and environmentally safe animal browse deterrent available and is used by leading forest companies, nurseries, private woodlot owners, landscapers, home gardeners, as well as State/Provincial and Federal Conservation agencies.

Fertilizing Effects

As an added benefit, Plantskydd Deer Repellant acts as a foliar feed fertilizer for many types of plants. Bloodmeal, Plantskydd's active ingredient, has long been recognized as an organic fertilizer. Studies performed by Pennsylvania State University showed that the use of Plantskydd on a variety of flowering plants resulted in a fertilizing effect.

"All plants tested that were treated with Plantskydd were larger, had more flowers and generally had greener leaves. This response is typical of the response created by an increased level of fertilization."

*View Industry Field Trial Results or User Testimonials.

How often do I need to treat my plants and trees?
Treat plants before browse begins (spring or fall). Frequency of application is dependent upon the growth rate of the plant. Always treat new growth until the plant has reached full size or leaf-out.  Plantskydd lasts up to 6 months over-winter on dormant plants and up to 4 months during the active growing season.  Ideally, Plantskydd is applied in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not as strong.

IMPORTANT: Apply solution on dry plants and allow to dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours before rain or watering.

Can I use Plantskydd on my veggie patch?
ORGANIC - Plantskydd Soluble Powder Concentrate has been Listed (trw-9589) by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) as suitable for use in the production of organic foods and fiber.  Plantskydd consists of 100% natural ingredients. Plantskydd's active repelling ingredient, dried blood (porcine), also acts as a high in nitrogen fertilizer. Do not apply directly onto edible parts of fruit, vegetables and other food crops; rather spray mainly inedible portion of plant. Wash any residue off fruit and vegetables before eating.

What formulation of Plantskydd is best for me?

How long can I keep Plantskydd in storage, before use?
Soluble powder concentrate Plantskydd in its original packaging lasts 3 years when kept in a dry, dark, cool (not freezing) place.  Once mixed into solution, use within a few days. Plantskydd is a 100% natural food grade product and will start to “go off” in warm weather. Tightly re-seal unused powder and store as above.  Ready-to-Use Liquid Plantskydd should be used within 3 months of opening the sealed container. Store in cool location, keep from freezing. Protect from heat.

Does Plantskydd work on conifer and broadleaf plants equally well?
Yes! See label for dilution rates and application methods.

Any advice for protecting fruit trees?
If you’re planting out young whips of fruit trees, try coating the whip using a paint brush and a thick solution of Plantskydd (We recommend soluble powder concentrate—follow directions on label). If subject to spring or summer browse, spray trees when the leaves have formed.

Anything in my landscape I should not treat with Plantskydd?
We suggest you test samples of sensitive plants before treating large numbers. If the leaves curl on test plants, rinse with a fine spray of water and dilute Plantskydd further (e.g. 1 pkg to 2-3 gallons water) prior to re-applying. Plantskydd will darken leaves temporarily—they return to their normal color in a couple of days.  For aesthetic reasons, use on very fuzzy leaves like Santolina, Lamb’s Ears and Lavender is not recommended. Fortunately, these plants are usually not preferred by our furry friends.

Will Plantskydd hurt my dog?
Some users have reported that the family dog is quite enamoured with Plantskydd when it is still wet on the plants. It will not harm animals but it’s best to leave Fido inside until the treated plants are dry.
