Yes! Plantskydd is made in the U.S.A. Pronounced plant-skid, it contains no synthetic additives, is non-toxic, and is not harmful to animals or the environment when used as directed.
Plantskydd is Swedish for ‘plant-protection,’ where it was first developed to protect its vast tree plantations from browsing by deer, rabbits and moose—while also adhering to its strict environmental laws.
It is equally effective protecting ornamentals, shrubs, trees, and food crops—and safe for pollinators too!
Plantskydd is the first animal repellent OMRI Listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute as suitable for use in the production of organic food and is USDA approved for organic gardening.
Unlike other repellents that quickly lose their effectiveness after irrigating or rainfall, Plantskydd is rain and snow resistant. It does not require immediate re-application and is now the #1 animal repellent choice of professional growers, foresters, and landscapers.
Plantskydd repels by emitting an odor browsing animals associate with predator activity—stimulating a fear-based response that will have garden feeders looking for somewhere else to dine. Research* has proven odor based repellents are more effective than other repellents. Animals avoid plants before they bite—not after! Plantskydd is proven effective against: deer, rabbits, elk, moose, voles, squirrels, and chipmunks.

Yes! Plantskydd is safe for use in protecting vegetables, legumes, fruit and other food crops from animal browse damage when used as directed.
Don’t spray edible parts of fruits and vegetables.
The granular formulation is a great choice for leafy greens.
Spray bulbs and allow to dry, then plant. When using Granular, we recommend sprinkling it into the hole as well as onto soil surface.
Yes! Plantskydd can be be used on flowers. It will darken lighter leaves and petals temporarily.
For sensitive plants (e.g., roses) we suggest you test samples before treating large numbers (wait 24 hours).
Spray as a fine mist, and apply to the stems and underside of leaves if you are concerned about discoloration.
Whips—if you’re planting fruit tree whips, dip them in Plantskydd solution before planting, or coat the stems/trunk using a paint brush. Then spray trees when leaves have formed.
Mature trees—spray more often at a dilute rate during fast growth phase. Treatment over foliage is enough to deter browsing herbivores.
Some users have reported that the family dog is quite enamoured with Plantskydd when it is initially sprayed on plants. It will not harm animals, but it’s best to leave Fido inside, until treated plants are dry (2-3 hrs).
Plantskydd is long lasting, even in wet weather. Our repellents will last 3+ months on dormant plants overwinter.
Allow Plantskydd liquid spray formulation to dry for 24 hours prior to watering plants or rainfall. If it rains within 24 hours of application, it should be reapplied.
Plantskydd granular formulations can be applied anytime.
To activate granules, lightly water the area where granules have been applied. More frequent application may be necessary during periods of heavy, prolonged rainfall.
Do not spray liquid repellents directly on wood, vinyl, concrete, furniture, fences or other building surfaces. To protect building structures, use a granular repellent as a perimeter barrier.
Plantskydd’s active ingredient has long been recognized as an organic (12N) fertilizer.
