How to be in charge of deer in your plot - landscaping-gardening


Deer are the most challenging of all pests to deter from a garden. They love many assorted plants. Flowers, vegetables, trees and vegetation are all on their menu.

The best way to keep deer out of a backyard is by using a fence that is at least 6 feet high. If it's a small garden that may be possible but for large gardens or yards, the cost is prohibitive, or perhaps not practical.

So the only other amount is deterrents.

Deer don't like the smell of raw eggs, fish products, kelp, or ammonia. Any spray made from these food can be used. Just mix the creation of amount in water and spray the plants to be protected.

Deer don't like the smell of soap either. Some gardeners have in particular found hit with Dial and Zest brands.

Blood meal scattered about the plot is an added good deterrent.

Since deer don't like capsaicin, the ingredient that makes peppers hot, a spray made from chili peppers deters deers.

Hang odorous fabric-softener strips, and small nylon bags filled with human hair on trees about the garden.

Some gardeners have found sensation by laying chicken wire on the base about six feet wide about the border of the garden. The deer don't like to walk on it for the reason that their hooves get stuck in the loops of the wire.

Try planting time-released garlic capsules at the bases of trees or vegetation or in the rows of plants to be protected.

There is a wide array of plants that deer won't eat. A list of what they like and don't like can be obtained from your local district collective addition office.
