The principle behind Scoot is training the deer and rabbits to stay away. The formulas success is attributed to the animal’s intelligence in associating discomfort with their activities and immediate area. The association can be immediate in some cases, but in others it could take up to several days. Scoot is manufactured from food grade capsaicin pepper. The product is unique because it does not wash off easily, and the protection lasts for four weeks with just one application.
