Tallow (rendered animal fat) has been used successfully in Europe for over a decade as an animal repellent to control deer & browsing pests from damaging trees, plants, food, horticultural and forage crops. Tallow works by emitting a natural odour, taste and texture that is repulsive to animals. Provides protection for up to 4-6 months.
FATBANG is an oil-in-water emulsion of 12% rendered fat in a spray that is applied to trees and plants. The fat works as a natural rain-fast sticker-spreader that adheres to the plant for long term effectiveness. Plants and trees treated with FATBANG will serve as a last-resort food source for browsers, encouraging them to dine elsewhere!
FATBANG is supplied in a 4L, 11L or 21L containers and costs as little as 15 cents per tree seedling.
