Top 5 Hazards of Deer in Your Yard

Deer Can Be Dangerous

Deer Can Be Dangerous

Having deer in your yard can be a problem for many reasons. Sure they can be a lovely sight to see when you look out the window but they can create a multitude of problems once they start visiting your property.

Crushing Plants

Deer are pretty big animals and they will walk wherever they feel like when they are roaming around your yard. Tender plants or garden beds can be churned up by hooves, and sometimes that can be more damaging than when they eat your plants. Continue reading

Top 3 Homemade Deer Repellent Tricks

Bright Color and Noise to Scare Deer Away

Deer are timid by nature and can be easily startled. A few strategically placed items can create an unpredictable environment that may scare off the deer. Shiny foil pie plates can be hung from trees or from poles, and the sound of them knocking around and the shiny surface can do the trick. Fabric streamers can be visually startling but they do lack the noisy element that the foil has.

Wind chimes can also do the trick though their sounds are less jarring, and they lack the distracting visual element that flapping pie plates have.

Cold Weather Deer Repellent Strategies

The Right Cold Weather Deer Repellent Strategy is Important

Once the temperature starts to drop, particularly below freezing, many kinds of deer repellent techniques aren’t going to work so well. Liquids and sprays are very hard to apply, and don’t even think about running a hose and sprinkler system in the winter.

So what kinds of cold-weather strategies do work to keep deer out of your yard?

Fencing

A good fence will work no matter what the weather is like, though if you live in an area that gets heavy snowfall, then it can be less effective. Once a few feet of snow has fallen, deer will be much more likely to hop over the partially buried fence in the winter. Still, it does function in cold weather which might be better than nothing.

4 Reasons for Deer Repellent Failure

Avoid Deer Repellent Failure

Avoid Deer Repellent Failure

Almost everyone with a yard or garden has heard at least one old wives tale about easy DIY methods for keeping deer off your property. And of course, they are always “guaranteed” to work, and yet when you try them they fail. Here are a few of the reasons why the “tried and true” approaches don’t work.

Hair Clippings

An old classic deer repellent is a little bag of human hair. The idea is that the smell will scare deer off because they are afraid of people. Seems reasonable enough except that most deer aren’t all that scared of humans, especially those that live around residential areas in the first place. So don’t bother saving up your discarded hair bits. They likely won’t help. Neither will the similar trick of using human urine around the borders of your yard. Deer just aren’t that afraid of people. Continue reading

Keep the distance between each pack to no more than 10 feet. They can easily be tied on to existing fence posts, yard stakes, small trees or other structures in your yard. If your plants are tall and sturdy enough on their own, you can tie repellent packs directly to them. The packs aren’t toxic so there won’t be any risk to the plant, or any harvest you get from it.
