Nature Technologies offers a great
solution to keep "pocket deer" from foraging on residential landscaping. It
is based on an electrical device that emits ultrasonic sound (with no effect on
humans, birds, cats, dogs) which prevents deer from hearing background
sounds,and makes them too uncomfortable to put their heads down to forage. When
foraging with their heads down, they must rely on hearing predators. But with
this equipment they know they cannot see or HEAR predators, so they leave the
property. The company quotes a 99% Customer Satisfaction
rate and offers a money-back guarantee.
deter deer by smell, taste, pain or a combination. A deer needs
to sample treated plants before becoming averse to them and
avoiding them in the future.

Products that contain
Capsaicin (pepper) or ammonia cause irritation on contact with mucous
membranes (eyes, mouth, nose.) These products cause the animal to
associate the treated plants with a feeling of sickness. Professionally
applied sprays for shrubs and plants that include a wax-based repellent
can last for many months.
Homemade & Natural
Repellents such as small, fine-mesh bags of human
hair--about two handfuls; bar soap hung from trees--Lifebuoy,
Ivory, or Irish Spring yield varying results. Bags should be
replaced monthly for optimize effectiveness.
Homemade pepper spray: two tablespoons
of hot pepper sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap, 1
teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 gallon of water.
Mothball flakes sprinkled in gardens;
human odors, including urine, are also deterrents. Line gardens
Flashing lights and noisemakers chase deer away. Changing the
position/location of these devices is more effective as deer are
neo-phobic--afraid of anything new or different.
Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler and
Spray Away Animal Repellant use automatic sensors
and scare deer away with water jets.
Aluminum pie pans and tin cans rattling in
the wind may help deter deer. Motion-activated ultrasonic deer and animal
repellents are designed to startle deer while not allowing them to become used
to the sound.
Fencing is the
most effective way to eliminate deer browsing. The most
suitable fence will depend on the size of the area, the topography,
and the type of vegetation to be protected. The most effective deer
repellent is a very tall fence, at least 8 to 10 feet tall.
Slanting the fence outward also helps to keep deer from getting to
landscaping. Deer Blocker Deer Fencing -
extremely strong, long-lasting, virtually invisible,
polyethylene mesh; clear fishing line or brick line tied to stakes
(tied with colored flags to warn people) to varying heights--deer
will not cross.
Perimeter Fencing types include:
High-Tensile Woven Wire, Chain link; Double-row wooden, solid
wooden, mesh-woven wire; Single or multiple-strand wire electrical
or slanted wire non-electrical. Single-Strange "peanut butter
fence"; Polytape and Polywire Fences. Lightweight
black polypropylene mesh should be installed
Invisible Black Mesh Barrier/Fencing:
Easy-Up Fence and
Benner's Garden Deer Fencing can beattached to posts or
stakes. Individual trees, bushes and groundcover can be protected
with stiff, plastic netting made of tough UV-stabilized
polypropylene such as Deer-X Netting.
Electric Fences: Some use a
battery-powered charger to send out short,strong bursts of
electricity that shock, but won't injure potential intruders.
Electronic Repellent attracts deer to posts with a lure
scent, then shocks them to repel them from yard/garden. Electric
fences are "behavioral barriers"
Netting & Tubing: Tubes of
Vexar netting around individual
seedlings are an effective method to reduce deer damage to small
trees. Tubes can protect just the growing terminals or can
completely enclose small trees. Tubes placed around the trunks of
larger trees will help prevent trunk damage.
Paper or Reemay budcaps form a
protective cylinder around the terminal leader and bud. Budcaps are
rectangular pieces of material folded lengthwise and stapled around
the terminal leader and may help reduce browse damage.
Bird netting, stretched over pvc pipe
framework is also an effective fence.
