We're always happy to answer your questions and address your concerns. While predator urine products may imply the use of actual predator urine, the fact of the matter is that the scent of the urine is actually what's being marketed. So, no wild animals are being captured and caged; no one is standing behind a tree with cup in hand. The scent is derived from mixing naturally occuring plant oils, herbs and minerals.

Predator urine is a strong, granular repellent that contains the scent of the animal?s most feared rival, the coyote. This repellent uses the scent of the coyote to take advantage of the deer and raccoon?s inborn, instinctive fear of its rival, driving the pests from your property.

Woodsmen have known for hundreds of years that the predator?s territorial marking tool, urine, strategically attracts or repels animals. By introducing the scent of a "predator", you send a forceful message to the offending deer and raccoon(s). That message is; This area has now been "claimed" by a much bigger threat. Rather than risk a potentially harmful conflict, your trespassing pest will now look for another spot for food or shelter.

Predator urine has many benefits:
It's safe to use around children pets and plants because it's 100% Organic; it makes no mess on you or your landscape; it's an easy to apply powder; it does NOT harm the animals you are repelling; it uses the strongest force in nature (instinctive FEAR) to your advantage.

Hope this information clarifies things for you.
