The company wants a patent for its Everguard Deer Repellent.

| December 7, 2011

West Kingston, R.I. – American Deer Proofing, the Rhode Island-based manufacturer of environmentally friendly, animal-deterrent plant sprays, submitted its patent application for Everguard Deer Repellent to the United States Patent Office.

Previously available to only professional landscapers and contractors, the company introduced its animal-deterrent to retailers nationwide earlier in the year. Proven in more than four years of commercial use, the company has applied to protect its formula and has plans to further expand its repellent retail line with other ‘green’ alternatives to protect hosta and flower gardens.

Everguard Deer Repellent is 25b exempt with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a proven safe solution for use around children and pets. Designed for animal-deterrent effectiveness, it is an unpleasant-tasting formula that is easily sprayed on plants to deter deer, rabbits, slugs and other animals from eating landscaping flora.
Everguard Deer Repellent’s ready-to-use formula has a 10-1 concentration.

For stubborn or high deer areas, the company offers three sizes of concentrated solution available in quart, half gallon and gallon containers that can be mixed with water at a ratio of 6-1 for higher performance. Minimizing the loss and costly replacement of plants due to animal damage, the formula effectively trains animals not to eat plants and modifies their behavior – resulting in the desire to search elsewhere for food.

“We are excited to secure our green animal deterrent formula with a patent and expand our line to provide even more options for high-performance flora protection,” said David Martin, manager of American Deer Proofing. “The formula has been used everyday for four years by professional landscapers. Now whether used by high-end professionals or at-home do-it-yourselfers, our Everguard line provides an environmentally friendly solution that successfully helps homeowners and businesses maintain beautiful gardens and landscaping, without the worry of animal degradation.”
