I am fairly new to the Des Moines area. There seem to be an inordinate number of deer living in residential areas here. We are renting now, but plan to buy a house in a semi-treed area, so we assume deer will be a problem in an unfenced yard. Since the deer absolutely DRAINED my bird feeders last night, I guess they are on my mind. What ideas have you found that work to deter deer? I am an avid gardener and bird feeder. I think the deer seem to like the same things I do.
