Vitax Scent Off Pellets
Advantages: The pellets stop pets fouling in your garden and are safe to use while children are around
Disadvantages: They are not 100% effective
WHAT IS IT?
Pellets containing the chemical naphthalene to prevent dogs and cats fouling in your garden. †I have used them since 2007 when we had our own cat who suddenly started to use one of our flower beds as her toilet. †It stopped her so after she died I continued to buy them to stop my neighbours cat from doing his business in our front garden.†
HOW DO YOU USE THEM?
The box contains three sachets filled with lots of small pellets. For a wide area you sprinkle a whole sachet out but if you've only got a small area that is attracting cats or dogs then you can use a third or half of a sachet and make them last longer. †The pellets aren't poisonous so children and animals can go near them, they do not affect the plants, grass or soil in my garden either.
DO THEY WORK?
They usually work. We live in a semi rural area so have a lot of cats passing through and sometimes one isn't deterred by the pellets and will foul the garden, but mostly they do not. †My pet cat would not use the flower bed as a toilet when I had sprinkled the area with pellets and it has also stopped my neighbours cat. †The pellets will stay active for a few days before you have to replace them but if you have very heavy rain they may be washed into the soil so you will have to sprinkle some more down.†
I shake a whole sachet across the front garden and always save some for the grass verge outside our garden where a dog will occasionally foul and their thoughtless owner doesn't pick it up. †I have seen an improvement but the Scent Off pellets are expensive at £5.50 for a box of three sachets so I do not like to use them very regularly on an area that isn't badly affected.†
You can buy Scent Off pellets from garden centres, hardware stores and Amazon.†
