Put the freeze on winter deer damage

January 27, 2011

Although difficult for the softhearted, turning a cold shoulder to visiting deer is the right thing to do

BRODHEADSVILLE, PA – “It’s so cold out. They must be starving – why else would they be looking for food? If I feed them, maybe they’ll stay away from my plants!” Sound familiar? As tempting as it may be, turn a cold shoulder to foraging deer – do not feed them! And, in spite of the chilly temperatures, ice or snow, applying a proven effective, all-season repellent right through the winter months will help stop deer cold in their tracks and prevent them from destroying ornamental bushes, trees and winter garden plants.

Don’t feed the deer.

Contrary to how it may seem to the softhearted, feeding deer is not good for them and it’s obviously not good for landscaping. In fact, feeding deer actually trains them to think of that backyard as a reliable source of food – and they won’t stop at generous handouts – expensive plantings will become tasty treats, too. Although well meaning, feeding deer promotes unhealthy behavior.

They will stay near the easy source of food, even if it’s inadequate, rather than seeking food in their natural environment. If deer ingest a food type that is not part of their natural diet they can become sick and even die.

Typically, they will compete for handouts, leaving more submissive deer underfed and promoting overly aggressive behavior.

Use an effective repellent

A liberal application of a proven effective, all-season deer repellent, such as Liquid Fence® Deer & Rabbit Repellent, on and around landscaped garden areas will help stop the deer from making a winter meal of shrubs, plants, trees and vines.  Be sure to apply when temperatures are above freezing. Liquid Fence works on scent, so the deer don’t even have to take a bite – unlike many other repellents that require the deer to “munch away” to be effective. The product should be applied during a dry period, then again, one week later. After that, a once-a-month spraying is all that’s needed.

An ounce of prevention…

It’s much easier to prevent the damage than it is to stop a foraging cycle that has already begun. Deer are creatures of habit. If they munched your tulips in the spring or crunched your pumpkins in the fall, you can bet they’ll be chomping your arborvitae in the winter! By applying Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent at the first signs of deer foraging, you’ll break their habit before it takes a strong hold.

A neighborhood effort

As in most situations, there is power in numbers. If adjacent properties practice the same deer control policies, the neighborhood will benefit. So work hard at convincing soft-hearted Mary, who’s been seen regularly feeding the local deer population, that she’s actually doing the deer more harm than good. Not to mention angering her neighbors by training the deer to continually seek food in her (and, consequently their) backyard!

Liquid Net Promises No-Fear Pet Insect Repellent

April 22, 2010

EPA Cracks Down On Spot-On Pesticide Products for Cats and Dogs

BRODHEADSVILLE, PA – Just as the weather warms and pet owners begin to think about controlling ticks and fleas, the EPA has announced it is taking immediate actions to place new restrictions on spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control for dogs and cats.

However, there is a no-fear solution on the market right now – that naturally protects pets from ticks, fleas and mosquitoes.

Liquid Net® for Pets, from The Liquid Fence® Company, is an all-natural, gentle and effective way to protect the family pet from ticks, fleas and mosquitoes. 

While restrictions on use and ingredients are being implemented by the EPA on many current products that contain irritating chemicals, Liquid Net for Pets contains NO Pyrethrins, NO DEET, NO Pyrethroids and NO d-Limonene.  It’s guaranteed to protect dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from biting insects without exposing them to dangerous chemicals.

Unlike harsh chemical-based products, Liquid Net is made with oils of botanicals and is pleasantly scented. It has been lab tested and proven to be more than or equally effective as typical off-the-shelf DEET solutions against fleas, ticks and biting insects.

Plus it’s non-greasy and won’t dry out your pets’ coats! And it comes in a new orbital sprayer that lets you spray upside-down for those hard-to-reach spots where ticks and fleas hide.

EPA plans are to immediately begin reviewing spot-on products and developing more stringent testing and evaluation requirements for both existing and new products. The EPA expects these steps will help prevent adverse reactions, including skin irritation, redness, or gastrointestinal problems that include vomiting or diarrhea, or effects to the nervous system, such as trembling, appearing depressed or seizures.

Liquid Net for Pets has received several industry awards, including Pet Product News Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Award (2008) and the Mail Order Gardening Association’s Green Thumb Award (2009). It’s available in a 16 ounce orbital sprayer bottle and individual towelettes for on-the-go convenience. Get it at stores throughout the country and on the web at www.liquidfence.com.

April 19, 2010

BRODHEADSVILLE, PA — Long involved in environmentally responsible gardening, The Liquid Fence® Company is teaming up with veteran television personality and nationally-recognized gardening guru and author, Joe Lamp’l, a.k.a. joe gardener® to sponsor the groundbreaking new “Public Broadcasting”  television series Growing a Greener World

Premiering nationwide May 15th, the 26 episodes focus on environmental stewardship with a fresh, bold approach.  Joe will be joined by “Garden Girl” Patti Moreno and celebrity chef Nathan Lyon, host of Discovery Health and Fit TV’s hit series, “A Lyon in the Kitchen”.

“This PBS sponsorship is a perfect fit for our all-natural animal repellents and garden products that are earth- friendly and safe for family and pets,” says Edward Abraham, president of The Liquid Fence Company, manufacturers of the number-one selling deer and rabbit repellent in the country.

Each episode features people, organizations, and events making a positive impact on the earth and inspirational how-to projects to be better stewards of the environment. The show connects with the younger gen X & Y’s using the latest blogs, online videos, podcasts and social media platforms.

Lamp’l  and Moreno highlight the latest eco-friendly trends along with traditional gardening know-how, while Chef Lyon demonstrates how to prepare healthy meals with fresh vegetables from the garden —and locally grown produce.

“Our flagship product, Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent has just been labeled for use on all food crops,” says Abraham.  “Those growing their own vegetables and herbs have an eco-friendly alternative to keep hungry deer and rabbits away and protect their hard work and investment.”

Lamp’l says he was inspired to make the show by his many loyal fans of his books and TV series. “The idea for a television series that blends my passion for sustainability and growing a greener world along with great gardening ideas and how-to’s was a natural result.”


Give Armadillos the Boot!

March 8, 2010

Coming Spring 2010: New Armadillo Repellent from Liquid Fence Saves Lawns and Gardens from Destructive Armadillos!

BRODHEADSVILLE, PA — From Florida to Oklahoma, Missouri to southern Indiana, armadillos are moving across America, damaging landscapes and gardens — one yard at a time.

The armor-plated mini tanks can turn your lawn and landscape into a battlefield and ruin thousands of dollars in valuable plants, landscape and flowerbeds.

Now The Liquid Fence® Company is commanding these mini tanks to “Move on out!”

From the company that brings you the #1-selling deer and rabbit repellent comes a new armadillo repellent that’s guaranteed to keep these pesky critters from destroying landscapes and gardens.

Digging machines! As solitary, nocturnal foes, armadillos forage at dusk and dig burrows that can extend up to 25′ long, disrupting root systems of trees, shrubs and ornamentals.

The snout-wielding insectivores dig up lawns, poking under loose leaves, and burrowing in gardens for their preferred food of choice: insects, grubs, mole crickets, earthworms, caterpillars, beetles, and more.

Since one armadillo is capable of maintaining up to 12 burrows, the damage to lawns and gardens and commercial farms and nurseries can be substantial. To compound the damage, their frenzied digging can damage concrete slabs and weaken your home’s foundations.

Burrows be-gone! You can try eliminating their food source of insects and grubs with pesticides that need several applications and may be toxic to beneficial insects and your plants, pets and family. Or use an all-natural animal repellent like the new Liquid Fence Armadillo Repellent that gives them a belly-ache, seeking food elsewhere.

The long-lasting, non-gel formula won’t clog sprayers and is as easy-to-apply as watering your lawn. And it’s earth, family and pet-friendly, and safe on all vegetation.

Liquid Fence Armadillo Repellent joins the company’s expanding line of environmentally-friendly garden products and repellents and is available in ready-to-use quart, gallon, and the convenient 2.5 gallon concentrate that covers approximately 50,000 square feet. Homeowners and growers will find the new armadillo repellent available in late spring at garden centers everywhere.

With the right repellent, you can win the battle against these armored pests, and declare victory over your land!
