PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Bobcat urine which is used by these cats to mark territory, dens, food and trails.
WHERE TO USE IT: Use it for leghold trap sets, flag sets, den sets and trail sets.
RATE OF APPLICATION: This will vary depending on the trapper. In most cases 2-4 ounces will more than suffice.
HOW TO USE IT AS A REPELLENT: Apply 1/2-1 oz to the ground (not plants or grass) every 10-20 feet to establish a barrier over which nuisance animals won’t cross.

I live in a rural area where there are lots of deer. I don’t want to scare off the deer by using coyote urine. Will bobcat urine work to repel prairie dogs? They’ve dug a hole close to our new well and I think they may be using the old well vault which has been covered up with dirt but they are diggin in it anyway. I also thought about bleach and/or jalapeno peppers – will any of that work??
Forget about bleach or peppers; they won’t have any impact. But Coyote Urine should help as long as they haven’t been nesting for a year or more. Generally speaking the urine will be effective at scaring prairie dogs if they are foraging on your property at random locations.
Now if you find a new nest or new activity that’s a few months old or less, you can usually get them to stop and relocate with urine as well. In fact, coyote, fox or bobcat urine will usually do the trick. These predators naturally feed on dogs so their urine is a “warning” sign to stay away.
As for deer; they won’t be bothered by the urine. True you can stop deer from eating certain plants if you spray coyote urine on the plant but since coyotes and bobcat live side by side with deer in the wild, deer are quite used to the smell and don’t perceive it as a direct threat. The bottom line is that if deer were afraid of coyote urine and had to stay clear of where they can smell it, there wouldn’t be any land left for them live on!

We live out in the woods and have a cat who likes to go outside. We have seen coyote droppings all along our long driveway and have seen tracks in the snow near our compost file. I put some construction bricks (with holes in them) where the driveway enters the yard and spray the inside of those holes with bob cat urine every 2 weeks or so. I also put out a dozen battery powered motion detector lights around our yard.. It appears the coyotes have disappeared. No more droppings. Our nearest neighbor says the same thing. I can’t say which technique is responsible but I can’t believe the lights have chased them away from our driveway. It must be the bob cat urine.
I live in the suburbs and I doubt there’s been a bobcat around here in ages. Would bobcat pee still work for prairie dogs that have never seen them? I don’t want to use the coyote one because I’m pretty sure there are coyotes in the area, and don’t want to attract them.
Prairie dogs are naturally “afraid” of predator urine like bobcat and coyote whether the animals are indigent to the region or not. So there would be no difference in performance whether you use bobcat or coyote urine.
As for “attracting” coyote; that shouldn’t be a concern. Placing urine on or around your property is a sign of the animals marking their territory. If anything, it would keep them away too. True, 1-2 might be curious and make a near by pass to see the “new kid in town” but they wouldn’t linger.
One more thing worth mentioning; the use of urine should be done to deter new animals from entering your property and not for chasing away established animals. So if you have prairie dogs already on your turf living, nesting or eating daily, placing urine as a barrier probably won’t chase them away. The correct way to implement the urine is to first remove the invading animals and once they’re cleared, to place said urine out. This way it will act as a natural barrier and repel future dogs that come around looking for a new place to live.
@admin: Ah, thank you for the help!

I live in Arizona and have large problem with Javelena destroying my agave plants that I have put in the property. I have heard about Bobcat urine that can be put around the plants to repel Javelenas? Does it work and where can I buy it?
Tech Support says
We have all sizes in stock, see above where you can order. But if you review our Javelena article, you will learn that we don’t recommend it. In fact our Sound Repellers are your best option. If you read up on their use for javelena and wild pigs in general, they’ve been working quite well for our customers with this issue. Product reviews are at the bottom of the page here:
