    Ingredients are dried blood, egg solids and garlic. I would think the first two would attract animals. I think I'd buy a bunch of garlic and rub it in the wood before I'd buy this. From what I've read, these animal repellants don't have a great record.

    Quote: I think it probably works very well at what it was designed to do.
    Unfortunately, that would be to seperate you from your money.

    Also, as soon as it gets wet, it's useless

    Boy, ain't that the truth.
    I've used it in the past to repel chipmunks from my garden. It was pretty much useless. I still have part of a bottle sitting around. It stinks to high heaven, but doesn't work. It made my garden smell like an abattoir, but the chipmunks kept coming.

    I've tried a few different natural scent type repellents to keep groundhogs away from my garden but none seemed to have any effect.

    Not sure what your all trying to repell, but every summer we liquid deer fence on our garden. It works great for deer. They will not touch anything sprayed with it. It lasts through rain too. We don't get alot of rain here so I don't know how many it will last through. We only have to spray 2-3 per season.
