Grazers Ltd is a family business based in Cumbria. Grazers was developed in 1999 by James Over and Nina Tidswell while treating a farmers crop with trace elements . The affected crop happened to be on the edge of a wood which normally received extensive damage from rabbits. After treatment, the farmer realised the crop damage was recovering rapidly although the rabbits were still there…
After some research and lots of trials in agriculture and horticulture, Grazers never looked back! Jonathan Tebb Roger is from a horticultural and agricultural background and has worked with Jim and Nina on trials of Grazers since its outset. Since Jim and Nina’s decision to retire in 2006, Jonathan and his wife Sally decided to buy the company and continue to manufacture and supply Grazers.
In 2011 in response to comments from customers, we decided to alter our garden range. People have said because Grazers is so concentrated and covers such a large area that there are concerns over how long it will keep.
SO ... we have introduced a bottle (375ml) which treats a smaller area 1000m2 and while doing this we looked at the bottle and labelling - we have actually increased the bottle size to allow the label to be simpler and clearer and offer straightforward advice.
For those with bigger gardens and allotments we have added another bottle (750ml)which is double the quantity treating up to 2000m2
We believe in our product and have seen the results
Grazers is totally safe for people, pets, plants & planet
In 2011 we learned that Grazers was being effectively used against mouse & vole damage to young seedlings and also against squirrel damage to young fruit in orchards.
More Unusual Pests from around the world!
We are getting more interest from overseas and recently heard that Grazers is effectively being used in New Zealand against Possum damage
It was interesting to hear back from Western Australia where a company have been conducting their own trials with Grazers against PARROTS - a major pest for growers and gardeners alike in Australia. See a couple of examples below.
1. On Cape lilac – normally very severe damage from parrots, but so far with the double rate every 2-3 weeks, damage has been almost zero.
2. On European oaks – normally light to moderate damage but so far has been very low. He makes it clear in his that the best effect is when there is good leaf coverage, and some species saw less damage than others.
It was also interesting to note from the report the difference in growth between treated and untreated evergreen oaks – they observed a surge in growth of up to 1 metre after 1 treatment. I must emphasize that this is in the Australian climate where the growing seasons and rates are more extreme than our rather cooler conditions - but it does go to show that even if we in the UK don't see the same marked difference in growth patterns, Grazers is having a positive effect on plant health!
A farmer from Tasmania had a trial bottle 2 years ago and trialled it on a 24m headland strip round a field of wheat and found that wallabies (and wild chickens) wouldn't cross.
