I was going to get a fence, but I tried this recipe

by Xan

When we had a landscaper over to consult on, among other things, installing some deer fencing so we could plant some more perennials, he suggested a much cheaper solution. He gave us his homemade deer repellent recipe, and it’s been working fine for two months now.


The recipe is simple: 1 quart Texas Pete and 6 eggs and water. Mix the Texas Pete and eggs in a blender, and then add with water to fill a 1 gallon sprayer. Leave any unused portion in the sprayer until it all gets used.

Stays on after rains, though I made a refresher pass after a month or so, anyway.

recipe for deer
by: S. Newton

Funny to learn that animals like deer repel to the recipe of some dish which is acting like a fence.
I'm facing same kind of problems but not of deer instead wolves! Can you make some other dish for it? However, I have not done a lot of research on it.

try the mothballs
by: dane

Try some moth balls around the corners of your garden. This will drive off those disturbing deer for good. You could also use tulsi plant. I don’t know if this will work a 100%. I have only heard about this and I have not done it personally. But the moth balls works for sure.

Another thing to try
by: Anonymous

If the repellent isn't enough, try the Guardener that is advertised on the page. You can move it around, and it works great, especially when you use spray repellent also.
