    Hey I just saw that they sell bob cat urine to keep away rats, mice, voles, and such on mypetchicken.com.

    Has anybody tried this, it sounds interesting, but you would think that it would maybe lure in bob cats that are feeling territorial or looking for a mate. Or just bobcats in particular.

    I would love to hear your thoughts.

    We had a problem with racoons this past spring. An old farmer told us to encourage our dog to pee around the coop, and he said best yet, you pee around the coop! I guess the scent of human urine works the best to keep predators away. [​IMG]

    Urine isn't going to keep anything away, since it quickly degrades into ammonia.
    If fact,, it's more likely to ATTRACT predators than repel anything at all
    No need to waste your money
