Animal Repellants are products designed to keep animals away from objects.

Animal repellants are available in two forms:

  1. Toxic animal repellants, which may cause poisoning and environmental damage
  2. Non-toxic animal repellants, such as the trade mark Rodrepel

Animal repellants have traditionally been used by farmers. Farmers often use very basic, natural animal repellents. Tiger urine is very effective at keeping away animals. Coyote urine has become the product choice to repel and deter deer. Fox urine is used to repel and deter rabbits, groundhogs, woodchucks, squirrels and chipmunks. Bobcat urine repels moles, mice, voles and other rodents. Wolf urine is used to repel moose. One type of animal repellent may be effective for raccoons, while another animal repellent may be more effective for skunks. Look up toxic and toxicity in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Rodents can cause a lot of damage to power cables and automobile cables, because they chew on such items to sharpen their teeth as the teeth grow. The exposed cable can cause a short circuit or fire. They also chew on such items as plastic doors, sidings, benches moulded plastic parts, cables, wires, and railway components. In the wild too, several animals chew on products made of plastics, such as plastic bins containers, cables.

  • It is possible to actually train animals and modify their behaviour to polymeric objects containing animal repellents
  • Animals need not be harmed or damage to the environment could be completely avoided by using non-toxic animal repellents in objects made of plastic
  • Damage from animals can be completely controlled without harming the animals
  • Repellence achieved maximum by addition of animal repellants to the actual point of contact
