This all-natural repellent is made of hot cayenne pepper extract and other natural repellents. After a few nibbles animals like tree squirrels and rabbits will no longer feed on your garden and shrubs. A highly refined food grade wax adheres to plants and also acts as an 'anti-transpirant'. Effective 3 weeks or longer. Rain won't wash it off. Safe for people and pets. Can be used on garden produce right up until the day of harvest.
