Plantskydd is the #1 choice of professional growers and
SAFE for use on Food Crops!
Plantskydd is used by farmers and orchardists to protect from animal browse damage the following crops: Blueberries, cauliflower, cotton, corn, fruit trees, grapes, pumpkins, soy beans, strawberries, vegetables, watermelon and more
We expreienced a 30% increase in yield — representing well over $1 million!
Plantskydd will definitely be included in our plans next year and we will likely use it on more acreage where we suspect underperforming sites.

Damage to the trees was dramatically reduced immediately after the first application of Plantskydd and complete control was achieved once adequate coverage was acheived.
By the end of Summer, browse damage from deer was virtually eliminated.
“We harvested 20,000Ibs on 2 acres. I observed only one ear of corn that appears to be disturbed by deer.”
“Overall, I am very pleased with the protection the deer repllent gave us on newly planted peach trees” The deer were present throughout the trial and I found that Plantskydd provided a solid 2 weeks of protection during the fast growth phase.
Those young trees certainly wouldn’t have made it through the first season without signifcant damage from the deer browse and rubbing had we not sprayed them with the repellent.”
What makes Plantskydd effective?
Plantskydd works by emitting an odor that animals associate with predator activity, repelling the animal before it nibbles on plants. The odor is not unpleasant to the applicator.
Research has proven that odor-based repellents are more effective than other repellent systems- where the animal needs to taste treated plants before being repelled. Once animals are attracted to an area and begin feeding, it is more difficult to discourage them from returning. Plantskydd stimulates a fear-based response which will have them looking for somewhere else to dine.
Plantskydd’s long-term effectiveness is attributable to the tenacity of its 100% natural, vegetable oil binder in sticking to plants, even under severe snow/rainfall conditions: up to 6 months over winter, 3-4 months in summer.
Plantskydd is RAIN FAST IN 24 HOURS
As an added benefit, Plantskydd acts as a foliar feed fertilizer for many types of plants. Bloodmeal, Plantskydd’s active ingredient, has long been recognized as an organic fertilizer. Studies performed by Pennsylvania State University showed that the use of Plantskydd on a variety of flowering plants resulted in a fertilizing effect.
“All plants tested that were treated with Plantskydd were larger, had more flowers and generally had greener leaves. This response is typical of the response created by an increased level of fertilization.”

EPA EXEMPT (25b)
Plantskydd is exempt from federal EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) pesticide registration. Plantskydd contains no synthetic additives, is non-toxic and is not harmful to animals, plants or the environment.
The ‘active’ ingredient is dried bloodmeal — recognized by the EPA as an environmentally safe ingredient.
In the United States, *bloodmeal* is an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) exempted product/minimum risk pesticide and is exempt from the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act requirements, specifically under Section 25(b) c.f. Federal Register, 61(45), Mar. 6, 1996 and therefore is not subject to federal registration.
“The EPA has determined … that the use of these pesticides poses insignificant risks to human health or the environment …
“The Agency in promulgating this rule, is responding to society’s increasing demand for more natural and benign methods of pest control … ”
