"Great Product! This really keeps the deer away with a nice minty scent and not that horrible putrid scent of simular products. I was skeptical at first because of the plesant scent it has, but I can honestly say after the first spraying this product works."
"I have tried many deer repellents, but none approach the success rate of Amazon's Deer Stopper. I put a Rhododendron at the side of my yard next to a deer trail protected only by monthly applications of Deer Stopper. Bambi never touched this plant while others, nearby but unprotected, were defoliated."
