Our story starts with our 1st product which was Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent created deep in the suburbs of Northwest CT. It was created by a regular homeowner and a friend named "Pepe", who were tired of having plants, shrubs and vegetables consistently damaged year after year by animals, especially deer. In short, it was a "pet peeve" that needed addressing. After unsuccessfully trying all of the readily available products claiming to prevent animal browse damage, this story became a classic "If something has to be done right, you have to do it yourself" scenario.
After using all the products available plus researching numerous University studies on preventing damage, Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent was invented. It was determined that Putrescent Eggs (rotten eggs) and garlic were effective deterrents but these were the same ingredients all the other unsuccessful products contained. It simply needed to be improved. Additionally, all of the products available consistently washed off causing the need for constant and costly reapplying.
The breakthrough: The breakthrough came when a study was published in 2000 that rated the amount of damage to numerous annuals, perennials and herbs. What was discovered was herbs such as Rosemary, Peppermint, Mint and Thyme had the least amount of damage (if any). These also happen to be highly recommended "animal resistant" plants. It was also discovered that these herb scents were available in powerful essential oils.
Let it be known that Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent was the first to include essential oils in an animal repellent. The 4 Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent scents are sold separately because to include all of the different scents in one application doesn't make the product more effective, it actually dilutes the effectiveness of the predominant and active scent. If you mix Rosemary, Peppermint, Mint and Thyme together, what do they smell like? We can assure you it doesn't smell like Rosemary or Peppermint or Mint or Thyme but a combination of all.
4 Different Scents: There is an important reason for the 4 different essential oil scents. We created 4 scents so 1 can be used for each season of the year. This is important because the most effective way to manage animal damage is to constantly introduce new scents into the environment. This is where Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent becomes an intelligent product. Animals remain fearful due to lack of familiarity of the scents in the protected environment. Rotating scents on a season to season basis is an effective time interval. Furthermore, unlike other animal repellents, Natural Armor™ All-Natural Animal Repellent DOESN'T STINK!. We're so sure of this, we incorporated it onto our product slogan, "PROTECTS, LASTS LONGER & DOESN'T STINK!"
We believe we have one of the best and most complete animal repellent products available on the market today.
Thank you for your time.
