Do you have pest animals wreaking havoc in your yard? Safer's Critter Ridder Animal Repellent Granules keeps critters away by overwhelming their senses. Without harming the animal, the granular formula repels through the sense of smell and taste with the use of three intense ingredients - piperine, oil of black pepper, and capsaicin. Critter Ridder Animal Repellent can be used outdoors in places such as lawns, flowerbeds, sheds, near trashcans, and more. Either apply by hand or with a long spreader.
