Keeping the Critters at Bay!

By Joy Mandelbaum, Master Gardener

Already tried EVERYTHING to keep the rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks from gnawing on your plants and digging holes in your garden??

I have tried with success a product called Bobbex R animal repellant concentrate (32 fl oz. That makes 256 fl. oz.). It is non-burning and has no harmful residue. It can be used on fruits and vegetables, but not edible leaves, herbs or rough-skinned berries. Active ingredients include putrescent whole egg solids, castor oil, cloves and garlic oil.

Available from Bobbex, Inc., 52 Hattertown Road, in Newtown, CT 06470. Call them at 1.800.792.4449 or check their website at www.bobbex.com
