    Tried everything. Liquid Fence is the only thing that seems to work for me. Once a week for 3 weeks and then monthly.

    I went to my barber shop/beauty salon and asked for the freshly cut hair and spread it around my rose bushes - the deer quit eating them. I had to refresh the hair periodically. Don't know why they don't like the hair, but it worked.

    Grate a bar of Irish spring soap and put around them. It works for me.
