Once upon a time, populated areas were wildlife free zones.
The worst that could happen to your garden and landscaping was the handiwork of pesky squirrels, moles and insects. The worst scenario then was the occasional rabbit. Such was life in the days that dogs were not chained and there were clear separations between city and country. Deer were once only the scourge of agricultural fields and the farm wife’s gardens.
Before suburban sprawl, deer were not every homeowner’s problem.
Today, it really doesn’t matter where you live. The majority of people who take pride in their landscapes or have a passion for perennials will most likely have issues with fawns in their flora. The babies will arrive with the rest of their extended family. In fact, if you have any plant remotely flavorful to deer, you can count on their arrival. It doesn’t matter if they are whitetails, blacktails or mule deer; deer are deer and they are destructive.
Deer in populated areas are accustomed to the noise and smell of humans.
Their young are born into a world that would once have sent the entire herd fleeing to safety. In the sprawl of human development, they have no place to go. Survival instincts and the lack of predators have caused deer to no longer be afraid of civilization. Now there are towns that actually have to hire teams of hunters to thin out the deer population. This is a sure indication that the circle of nature has been thrown off balance.
The presence of deer in your yard is not scenic or quality of living.
It is not in your best interest to dwell in a development that advertises, “abundant wildlife”. In the real world this means that your shrubs, trees, perennials, annuals and vegetable plants are in danger 365 days a year. You have no choice but to adopt a maintenance schedule that will keep deer off of you entire property.
Treating certain plants with deer repellent is not effective control.
When deer are hungry enough due to extreme weather or lack of natural food from over crowding, they won’t just be attracted to the delicious plants. Then there are the stretches of time that their natural food source is yet to ripen. To effectively repel deer from your desirable plants, you need to deter them from setting foot on your property. Period.
There are very few deer repellents available that offer this level of protection.
All brands advertise that they are long lasting and highly effective. Very few deer deterrent products give you the option of creating a barrier without a fence. At best, most will need numerous applications on a monthly basis and be extremely costly. Applying any liquid deer repellents to food plants will affect the flavor and desirability of fruits and vegetables harvested.
Facts about some deer repellents may be surprising and of concern to you.
A panel of landscape professionals recently did extensive research on all commercial deer repellents. The results of their search are now published online as a complete directory of deer damage control applications. The information unveiled is now compiled into the only unbiased product reviews of all deer repellents available. For anyone who is experiencing problems with deer browsing, there is much to learn about the best methods of stopping the damage. It is the wise homeowner that will do good research before investing in deer deterrents in an effort to protect their plants.
