  • Deer Repellant

    OK, I've heard lots of "home remedies" for keeping deer out of your yard, but what really works?

    I've heard "go to the barber shop and sweep up the hair off the floor cause deer hate that smell".

    I've heard you can plant certain flowers -- germaniums? And other "natural remedies".

    Apparently, my deer have not been advised on the latest deer repeller technologies or methods, cause they keep eating Mrs. CP's flowers.

    (Now, never mind the fact that she bought a bag of DEER CORN to put in the front yard several years ago so the grandkids could see deer up close and personal -- NOW she wants them to stay AWAY! Could be our deer are just really confused... "you invite me there, then you shoo me away?")

    I'd like to stay with NATURAL remedies. (one of my favorites was "buy some panther (or cougar) pee, and sprinkle some around the garden)

      I hear the panther one works "60% of the time every time".

        He polices the BACK yard - he has about 2 acres of deer-free territory. It's the FRONT yard (open to the street and the neighborhood, woods, fields, streams, etc) that is in question.

          Fence in the front yard, problem solved.

            Doesn't human urine work?

            I mean, it's only the front yard, and all.

              Spongebob, my grandson, LOVES to pee in the yard. (we ARE out in the country, ya know) And what's even funnier is to see how quickly Jake gets "to the spot" to pee on Spongebob's pee.

                Spongebob needs to spread it out a little in the front yard and maybe Jake will help out!

                But that doesn't answer my sort-of-query about human urine. Does it keep critters out of the yard?

                  Don't know, Moss, I guess I could try! (when it gets a little warmer, that is. Sissies, ya know)

                    Of course when it warms up. In the meantime....

                      Oleander grow well in your area? They're poisonous and contain digitalis components so keep kids AND animals away but deer don't like them.

                      Here's a link to other plants: http://gardeninglaunchpad.com/Deer.html

                        Yeah, forgot about that one, DB.... we don't grow them because of the horses and donkeys.... but, yeah, they grow well here!

                        I'll look at the other plants in the list.

                            I understand that lead is a pretty good deer repellent. And you have the added bonus of venison.

                              Only if it's deer hunting season...and gotta have a license to kill.
