The Straight Poop About Milorganite
When our customers complain about deer problems, instead of reaching for the coyote pee, we recommend Milorganite instead. Then they ask us what it’s made of, and we get a funny look on our faces and say, “Do you really want to know?” Most of the time, the answer is, “No.”
But for those of you who, after seeing the fantastic results, may just be a little curious, here’s the straight poop. Milorganite, made inMilwaukeeWisconsin, is one of the world’s largest recycling efforts. Wastewater goes through a filtration system, where clean water comes out the other end and is sent toLake Michigan. The rest is dried out, bagged, and sold at fine retailers the world over as Milorganite.
That’s right, folks Milorganite is people…er….waste. And the microbes that eat it.
The process is completely safe, the microbes and waste are heated up to between 900 and 1200 degrees so any pathogens still lurking within are killed off. And it’s completely organic so there are no harsh chemicals involved and so there’s no danger to pets, children, or the environment.
Ben recommends it because it’s less expensive than coyote urine, and covers a larger area. It also does double duty as a fertilizer, a claim no coyote can make.
If however the idea of Milorganite makes you a little squeamish, the second best alternative is Liquid Fence. It needs to be reapplied every 6-8 weeks and is more expensive, but works almost as well.
