Preparing for winter protection

Even though summer isn’t quite over yet, we are getting lots of calls here at Liquid Fence Headquarters about protecting from deer damage through the winter months with Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent.  Here are some tips on how to make colder-season protection a little more worry-free.

Storage – Be sure to store all of your Liquid Fence products in an area that will remain above freezing.  The Liquid Fence line of repellents and gardening aids are made up mainly of natural ingredients and essential oils.  This means they won’t harm your family, pets, or the environment.  It also means that they need to be stored at temperatures between 40°F and 90°F or they will break down and become unusable.  Try to find a winter home for your repellents now.  This will save you lots of frustration further along in the season.

ApplicationLiquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent is an all-season product, which means you can apply it during the winter months.  The key to successful use throughout the chillier time of year, is applying the product when the temperature is  above freezing and will remain above freezing for approximately 4-6 hours or until the product dries.

And what about the snow? – Love it or hate it, many of us live in climates where snow is a very real part of winter.  Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent Spray can not be applied directly to snow, as the snow will dilute the product.  If branches are covered in snow, it’s best to brush them off and give them a chance to air dry in preparation for applying the product.  It is important for the weather to be warm enough for the branches to air dry, because if the temperatures are too cold and they freeze dry it is too cold to apply the product.

Winter protection from deer damage can be a challenge, thanks to the deer population’s food source quickly disappearing.  Even the supposed deer-proof plants can be up for grabs.  With Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent this protection is not only attainable, it’s guaranteed.  If you’re curious about how to protect your plants during the winter and have more questions than the ones we addressed here, feel free to leave a comment and ask away!
