Update on Vicks Vaporub to repel deer
Still experimenting with Vicks around my hostas and daylilies, have gone to putting a short stake in each hosta and smearing it with Vicks. No deer damage so far, not since I have been using it! No rabbit damage either tho I have seen a couple of rabbits almost as big as my cat, just outside the back gate. But not in the woods!
And a friend who has a big deer problem told me they were eating the buds on her daylilies, I suggested she try it, she did and there have been no more deer in her yard for the three days after she applied the Vicks to the buds and stems!
I'm loving the stuff!
