New Way to Use Deer Repellant
by Ted Ford
This is not a new recipe, but a different way to use any good repellent.
1) Obtain small plastic containers - yogurt or individual fruit cup size.
2) Obtain 18 gauge (1.2 mm)galvanized or copper wire. Burn hole in bottom of container by heating one end of wire over stove and using to burn hole.
3) Cut 6-8 inch section of wire and bend one end of wire around a cylinder of cloth or sponge, sized to fit within cup. Place free end wire up through hole, so cloth is w/in the container. Will look like a bell or umbrella
4)Hang this on shrubs, trees or in garden about 8- 12 feet apart and saturate cloth or sponge with any effective repellent. This way odor persists w/out being affected by rain. I usually saturate devices every 1 - 1 1/2 months. Working great for me so far. Deer won't even enter yard.
To improve cosmetics, spray paint container color of shrub it hangs on.
