This stuff works great, the smell is horrible, but works wonderful. I sprayed it on all my freshly planted lilac trees and they are all still there. We live in the woods and have many deer, rabbits and other critters. The few trees that we did not get a chance to plant were not sprayed, they were eaten.
This stuff works great. Smells real bad when you spray it on. But as promised the smell goes away after drying. We are loaded with deer and they don't eat my hostas or day lilies are anything else I spray this stuff on. I spray every 10 to 12 days. even if it rains during that time period.
