I used this in the past at my mother's house in an attempt to solve a deer problem and it worked very well. My question is this, does milorganite keep most animals from eating plants, such as rabbits. Also, is this stuff a fertilizer, because if I remember correctly, the hostas at her house took off the year we started using it. Thanks in advance.

Milorganite is a type of sewage/sludge fertilizer first produced and marketed in Milwaukee. The fertilizer analysis is 5-2-0 and slightly acidic.

Thanks. Any other information about this product? I was initially directed to use this as a means of keeping deer from feasting on our plants and it really did work. Was this just dumb luck? In terms of fertilizing beds, can somebody please compare milorganite to Preen for gardens, which claims to act not only as a fertilizer, but also weed control/prevention.
