Issue: Critters/ Animals/ Pests Chewing Drip Tape or Driplines: Unfortunately, some of nature's uninvited guests can make their way into your garden and can cause problems by chewing tubing or drip tape.
Solution: Critter MAXX:
This is a 100% organic repellent product that is considered safe for use in and around your vegetable garden to protect against moles, voles, and gophers. This is not a poison, it will not kill pests, only repels them. The ingredients are on the EPA’s 25(b) list of known safe repellents identified and regulated by the FIFRA Act.
How to apply: Critter-Maxx is not systemic so must be applied frequently (every 30-45 days normally) to the problem area. It can be applied through an EZ-Flo injector system, a hose-end sprayer, or a pressure tank sprayer.
Issue: Hard Water In My System (Clogged emitters or drippers): If you have hard water or water with minerals that cause build up, you know how frustrating it can be to see clogged emitters. Cleanable drippers are helpful but can be labor-intensive and time-consuming to clean an entire system.
