Does this product work for skunks? Is it safe to use around house pets?
Best Answer: I believe this product would be somewhat effective on repelling any animal with a sensitive nose. It is strongly aromatic, but not exactly unpleasant. I have had no trouble with any animals getting into my farm equipment since I started putting a bag of this stuff under the hoods of each parked vehicle/tractor. I'd say it is safe to use around any animal/pet, as I cannot imagine any of them eating it. They just get a whiff and then keep their distance. Hope this info is helpful.
How long will it last?
Best Answer: I bought Fresh Cab in Oct 2013. I put 2 bags in my shed immediately and the second 2 bags about 6 months later. To be honest , I forgot about them until you asked a question. I checked today and they still have some scent but probably not strong enough to deter pests. I have added rodent bait but there has not been any activity noticed at the recent visits by my pest man. I assume to repellent is still working. I t is probably time to renew as the snow is finally melting away and rodent activity is increasing. Hope this helps. Bill B.
Can it be used in a chicken coop?
Best Answer: I see no reason why not, as I doubt the chickens would peck at it and/or ingest it. I know that grouse will eat mountain laurel, but these shavings have a pretty strong smell. I guess it works as I have had no trouble with mice in my equipment where I am using these packets and I did have some trouble before I started using it.
