Keeping Away Deer !


Home made ,all natural way to keep critters from eating you plants and garden. Gather a clear plastic jug ( 1 gallon ) . The larger the opening the better. I use left overs that some might throw away. Take 1/2 onion, 1 garlic glove or 2 tablespoons of garlic powder (not salt!), 4 dash of hot sauce or 2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper, Two raw eggs. Place all in Jug then add wrm water. Shake well then sit in the sun for a few days . Strain with cheese cloth into clean spayer. Spray hostas , tomatos , etc. dose not matter it is all natural! Deer can't stand it!!! Soak plants well so leaves will absorb it. Spray agian after rains. It will smell pretty bad for about 1/2 hour then you can't smell it but the critters can. I grew up near state park we had a big problem with deer and ground hogs. this works great!
Deer comming in to eat all my hard work! No No No ! hey it worked.
