Ready-to-use Pepper Dust can be used to keep animals off seed beds, recent plantings, drives, dustbins, paths and patios in a cost effective, easy-to-use form. The Pepper Dust works by confusing the animals sense of taste and smell to ensure that it will stay off the areas you wish to protect. For best results it is important that all animal droppings and smells are removed prior to using all deterrent products. Animal smells can be broken down by treating the area with a weak detergent solution. Children and pets need not be excluded from treated areas. Contains pepper. Apply at the first signs of unwanted animal fouling activity. How to Use: The pepper can be applied directly from the pack to the area to be treated. A repeat application will be needed twice a week at the rates recommended on the packet.
