Ro-pel gives a harmless but very bitter taste to all chewables and edibles that you want to protect. Useful anywhere you want chewing by animals to stop. Spray on to prevent squirrels from chewing on electric wires in cars, patio cushions, wood molding and to keep them away from seed-laden ground around birdfeeders. Ro-pel also protects seeds and bulbs. A simple soaking for one minute before planting will make your seeds and bulbs unpalatable to foraging animals. Not for use with food crops.
