How BOBBEX Deer and Animal Repellent Works
Animal and Deer Repellents -- Buy It Here

BOBBEX repels through both odor and taste by using meat meal, fish oil, putrescent eggs, garlic and other naturally occurring ingredients to deter deer from browsing.

In the springtime BOBBEX Products reduce stress brought on by late spring temperature dips.

Note: All instructions, tips, spray schedules and ratios also apply to BOBBEX-R
"If you follow our program the product will work."

Application Instructions
Spray BOBBEX on all parts of the plant including leaves, stems, and flowers.

For BOBBEX Concentrates:

In Spring & Summer (Fast Growth Times):

Dilute 1 part BOBBEX to 8 parts water.
Spray every 10 to 14 days*.


In Late Fall & Winter (Dormant times):

Dilute 1 part BOBBEX to 5 parts water.
Spray every 2 months*.


BOBBEX should be sprayed between 35 and 85 Fahrenheit.

Note: Dilution ratio may vary based on deer pressure in your area.

In the winter, cold weather, blustery winds, and frozen soils reduce a plants ability to absorb moisture needed to maintain vitality. BOBBEX provides retention of moisture in the plantings through periods of frigid winter weather, in addition to deer deterrence. It will also reduce damage from a late spring or early fall frost



Remember new-growth is unprotected growth.  A repellent is effective only as long as it covers the new growth.
Use BOBBEX to protect your plants from:
  • White Tail Deer
  • Black Tail Deer
  • Mule Deer
  • Elk
  • Moose
Use BOBBEX-R to protect your Plants from:
  • Rabbits
  • Ground Hogs
  • Chipmunks
  • Squirrels
  • Voles




Bobbex-R makes a great bulb dip to prevent burrowing herbivores from smelling and discovering your wintered bulbs.  See instructions further down.

Spraying BOBBEX

PUMP SPRAYERWhen spraying concentrated BOBBEX, the most efficient method of applying the product is a pressurized spray pump.  Ask your local garden center or hardware store, most carry several sizes and are relatively inexpensive. These sprayers come in gallon, 1, 2, or 3 gallon containers.



We strongly recommend using a new pressurized pump sprayer.  Pump sprayers that were used to spray herbicides may cause harm to your plants.

Before spraying, make sure the plants are dry. BOBBEX will not stick well to wet surfaces. Also BOBBEX will require 5 to 6 hours of drying time to adequately adhere to plant surfaces.

Begin spraying in the spring when the plants are approximately inch out of the ground. During this period of rapid growth, spray the entire plant every 7 to 14 days or, for every 3 to 5 inches of new growth, particularly buds and flowers. BOBBEX can be used year round.

"Remember new-growth is unprotected growth.  A repellent is effective only as long as it covers the new growth."




Bobbex can reduce moisture loss in times of hot summer drought and cold frigid weather conditions.
When applying BOBBEX, spray plant or section of the plant until the BOBBEX first drips off the leaves. When the first drip appears, move to the next section or plant. Plants should be wet but not soaking.

BOBBEX will leave a strong odor for about 24 Hours. After this time the odor will be detectable only by deer.

Dilute only the amount of BOBBEX you intend to spray. Diluted mixture should be used within 5 days. Rinse tank with a mild soapy water solution and spray through the hose. Store the unused portions of BOBBEX in a cool dry place. If BOBBEX PRODUCTS freeze they can be used upon thawing.



IF you are planning an outdoor activity, be sure to spray BOBBEX two days in advance.

Bulb Dip Program

Using BOBBEX-R as a bulb protector will give your bulb a chance to survive through the winter from burrowing herbivores and deer. Voles use their keen sense of smell to find roots and bulbs underground. BOBBEX-R creates a physical aromatic barrier around the bulb and prevents these animals from discovering the bulb. In addition to creating a natural scent barrier, BOBBEX-R also leaves trace elements and nutrients beneficial to the bulb when it grows in the spring.

Bulb Dip Instructions

1. Remove all loose and dried plant tissue
around the bulbs

2. Dip bulbs in straight concentrated BOBBEX-R (right out of the bottle). Allow bulbs to soak for 3 to 5 minutes

3. Remove bulbs from concentrate and allow them to air dry. This protective coating also slowly breaks down to provide nutrients for the growing plant



Bulbs do not like being in direct sun light when drying.  Keep the bulbs in a shaded area.

BOBBEX on Vegetables
NOTE: The following instructions also apply to BOBBEX-R products.

BOBBEX can be used on certain vegetables. These are identified below:

Fruit (flowering) bearing Vegetables:

i.e. Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Squash, Apples, Pumpkins, etc...

Spray BOBBEX liberally (as specified above) through the flowering stage. As the fruit matures, taper off spraying. Or if you need to spray try to avoid the fruit.
Wash vegetables thoroughly.



By July and August deer will generally find other edible things in their more natural setting.
Leafy Vegetables:

i.e. Lettuce, Cabbage, Kale, etc...

Do not use BOBBEX on leafy vegetables. BOBBEX contains stickers, which allow the product to stick and last a long time on plant surfaces. The BOBBEX will stay in the crevasses of the leaf and be very difficult to wash off. BOBBEX does not make the best salad dressing.


i.e. Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Parsley, Rosemary, etc...

Do not use BOBBEX on Herbs. For the same reason as leafy vegetables, BOBBEX will affect the tastes of your herbs and be difficult to wash off.

Rooted Vegetables:

i.e. Potatoes, Beets, Carrots, etc...

BOBBEX can be used on rooted vegetable plants provided the plant-leaf will not be eaten.
