Deer Repellent

Deer Repellent

Deer are welcome friends until they eat your plants.

The best deer repellent is a certified hunt hound, but most of us have to find another solution.
Even “deer resistant” plants are sometimes good eats to a hungry deer.
No repellent, commercial or homemade, can provide 100% protection but some do work better than others.
There are few over the counter repellents sold that do work quite well, but home natural remedies can also do the job.
A sulfurous smell given off by an egg based repellent give the impression there is a predator in the vicinity.  Cayenne pepper and wintergreen oil also work for deterring deer.
The most effective natural homemade deer deterrent is a spray made of eggs, garlic and chili peppers.  Deer do not like the offensive fragrance.
Whatever you decide to use, the more frequent you apply it, the more effective it will be.
