Lets talk deer control
With winter right around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to see what everyone is using and what works best. I'm trying to protect 1 acre of plants.
All summer I've used Deer Out - It smells like peppermint to us, but the smell is to strong for deer. It doesn't smell bad like some of the others, but if you do a lot of plants the pepperment smell will be very strong for a few hours & you will probably want to be inside. It needs to be applied directly to the plants & works pretty decent. I've had a few nibbles here and there. The deer have been browsing since I do have a lot of tracks in the beds.
During winter I'm thinking about sprinkling Deer Scram around the beds - Smells like fertalizer to us, but dead deer to them. I hope to use this as my first defense, then deer out will of course be my second.
For those of us that don't have the benefits of an actual fence:
What size lot are you protecting?
What are you using (Summer or Winter)?
