Systemic deer repellent experiences?

I just discovered Repellex, a tablet with capsacian pepper that the roots suck up and then flows to the leaf. People in NJ have been using the original formula, the company split into two, now marketed under the name Natura Products. I have heard amazing results from people who have used it and was wondering if anyone in NY has tried it, and what the results were? A Hosta lady in MD said you could take all your netting down and not have to use sprays again. I'm about to do a side by side trial of the two forms. This could be a miracle......

it sure does look interesting. Their whole site looks interesting.
I don't have a deer problem (thank goodness) But I have problems with voles, moles, chipmunks, and rabbits.
Keep us posted :)

It's supposed to work on all those rodents. I just put the Natura tablets (see link below) down. That is the original product that uses Bitrex... the strongest bitter agent known. I put the capsacian (pepper) tablets down two weeks ago on similar plants and shrubs. Will do another round in the spring and see which of the two perform better.
