    Deer Repellent?

    I am trying something called Deer Out this year. It is a peppermint, garlic, white pepper oil mixture. Has anyone used it before? Found it effective or not? It certainly has an odor to it!!

    I had been using a few halloween scream boxes in the planters that are motion activated but I don't use those on rainy nights.

    I mixed it as instructed and sprayed it tonight, it isn't supposed to kill the plants and I hope its right or I am in deep doo doo and will be using that money I set aside for a compressor for plant replacements.

    I’ve only ever found one consistently effective deer repellent, doses of hot copper and lead delivered at supersonic speeds...

    Physical repellent, such as yours or those with various predator urine smells; scream boxes or sonic devices; even fencing at times will be breached depending on the deer’s mindset and motivation due to hunger.

    Usually in .25 to .30 dimensions.


    Simple way to keep them away. Put a deer stand/climber in the garden.


    Seriously, the only way I have found effective to repel deer is to hunt them.

    I've seen one setup where lawn sprinklers (the higher powered commercial style sprinklers) on 3-4ft high tri-pods, were mated up with motion detectors, as deer repellent in town. it was in a small garden type area shared by multiple home owners, and there was about 4 of the sprinkler heads setup in throughout the area. They said it worked really good. We were switching on some underground transformers, and they got us once before we were able to tell them to shut'em off. It was a pretty trick setup.

    Hope you didn't have a hot elbow on the end of a switch stick when you got hit.

    Ha, not at that time. We were just walking up to the can, when we got hosed by it.

    Repellant

    We've used another brand and it works, but needs reapplication after rain.

    I was talking with a soybean farmer yesterday and deer damage in the bean fields came up. I don't know what's in daffodils but I've never seen deer or cows eat those. I need to explore that further, maybe it's an idea waiting for some extra work to make it viable. . .

    I battle deer on a daily basis. The only 100% effective solution was to construct 1,000' of 8' deer fencing with a 16' gate. Never had a deer in the orchard since. I put up a 8' fence constructed of 12.5" high tensile fencing spaced at 9" and the deer went through that with no problem. Eventually tore that down and salvaged to make trellis.

    A product I mix for my wife to keep the deer off her posies is called Hinder.

    I have read if you string fishing line around the garden it discourages the deer? They can't see it but they run into it and it freaks them out? Has anyone on here tried that method?

    I've heard about this too (maybe on here somewhere?). I'd think it may work initially but the deer would eventually learn it's not a threat and work around it, like other animals?
