Bio-Repellar

Identification
A dark reddish-brown liquid
Mode of action

Bio-Repellar causes a mouth burning sensation in animals when eating leafs that have been sprayed.  This  in turn makes the animal to avoid eating from that plant.  Spraying the first two to three rows is normally enough to keep leaf eaters out of the crop.

Once damage is sighted and tracks are located, spray Bio-Repellar in the area of entrance, or all areas where damage is anticipated.  Repeat until tracks clearly show that border is respected or threat of entry by animals is over.

Keep in mind that some bucks tend to run / jump over open space and might not eat in the first few rows.  In such event spraying a larger area is required.

PESTICIDE INFORMATION PROFILE

Capsaicin is natural, processed vegetable matter that has been part of the human diet for many years. It is unlikely that products containing capsaicin will pose a significant threat to human health. Excessive exposure to capsaicin may cause some slight eye and skin
irritation. However, based on the existing acute toxicity data base, there is little concern.
