Taste and glow keeps foxes at bay…

FOXES posing a threat to lambs will be repelled by Repel, claims manufacturer Pro-Products.

Applied in stripes on the flanks of lambs, Repel is phosphorescent and will glow in the dark, giving off a flickering light which will deter foxes, says the company.

A powerful foul-tasting additive will also deter foxes who take treated lambs. According to the company, once foxes have experienced this they will associate the green glow with a foul taste and will be deterred.

Cost of Repel, available in pack of six 170ml treatments is £30 (01772-696930).
