What can I do about my Deer problems??

JohnSissyMaster deecon


I live in mid Michigan and every spring the deer run rampid with my flowers as they pop up through the ground, either eating the tops off or pulling the plants, bulb and all. I have tried everything from urine to Irish spring soap. Any suggestions?? Thank you, Denise

    You can sprinkle soap shaving around your yard and flowers, they hate that! Just remember to replace the soap after rainfall

    Irish Spring soap placed in your gardens or hanging from your fruit trees is a good deer repellant. Also scattering human hair clippings throughout your gardens is said to help (ask your stylist to save clippings for you).

    I use "liquid Fence" It is expensive but then so are the plants.

    Deer are scared of humans, so all you need is some human hair. Go to your hairdresser's or barber shop & ask if you can sweep up some of the hair for a day. Spread the hair around the edges of your garden & they won't come near!

    deer fencing, deer rid sprays, a good rifle, a big dog, electric fencing and the hair idea works too....right now there is an over population of deer so some states have no limit....our problem was solved by allowing hunters to hunt for if they can just get rid of all the feral hogs
