Summertime is primetime for pest issues and damage caused by deer, rabbits, moles, squirrels, aphids, mites, Japanese beetles, scales, leafminers, black spot, powdery mildew, and much more.  

Are these pests attacking your plants?

Our retail center carries a variety of organic, natural, safe, and easy-to-use products for your fruit trees, ornamental trees, roses, flowering & fruiting shrubs, perennials, vegetables, & houseplants.

Deer, Rabbits, Geese, Squirrels, & Moles: Here are some tips for mammal pest control.

1. Apply different products or scents at each application. Deer & rabbits can eventually get used to the same product, no matter how effective it may have been on the first application. If your go-to animal repellent is no longer doing the job, try a different product or a variety of scents.

Mix up your routine & switch to Milorganite, I Must Garden Deer Repellent in mint or spice, Liquid Fence in a granular or spray, or Plantskydd spray. Most of these products are available in a variety of sizes & applications, depending on the size of the area you may need to cover.

2. Apply regularly. We have found it is best to apply any type of deer or rabbit repellent every two weeks, or after a heavy rain. Like most gardening activities, you have to keep up on it to keep it looking nice.
