Systemic repellents

Why these are ridiculous

Systemic sprays are designed to be absorbed by the target plant...so for systemic repellents the idea is that the plant will be sufficiently saturated with the repellent that when eaten its taste will do its work. Well that's bollocks!

Firstly, the animal has to bite and chew the plant to get a taste, but by then it's too late as the plant will be stuffed, especially if they ring-bark or munch the young shoots and juicy growth points.

Secondly, the chemicals used (ie: calcium chloride) would have to be present in such a massive concentration in the plant that it would die. So in reality the concentration is so weak that it's undetectable by the browser.

Thirdly, the only type of repellent worth looking at is one that repels through odour and/or visual signals which would then stop the browser from biting and damaging the plant in the first place. If it smells decaying fat and/or oxidising protein that then triggers a flight response as it suggests a predator has killed something close-by. Topical repellents are the better solution. If your dinner smelled rotten you wouldn't eat it would you?

BANGBANG is decaying animal protein so it gives off a sulphurous smell as it oxidises. The fat in FATBANG also gives an offensive odour plus the sight and texture of the fat does the rest.
