Even if a plant is labeled “deer resistant” they’ll eat it if they are hungry enough. This past winter was a harsh one and my shrubs took a big hit. Our property covers about 5 acres — most of it wooded — but they’d prefer to munch on the day lilies, hostas, boxwood, and holly — landscape plants on the outside of the garden zone.
Besides destroying expensive landscape plantings, deer are a hazard to motorists causing in excess of 500,000 auto accidents annually. And, worst of all, they carry ticks that spread Lyme disease which can be devastating to humans.
If I had a nickel for every new suggestion I tried or contraption I bought to fight Bambi and her friends, I’d be a rich man. Dryer sheets, Irish Spring soap, motion sensitive floodlights and sprinklers, human hair, coyote urine — the list goes on and on.
Here's what you need (the recipe link is at the bottom of the post!): Fels-Naptha soap, eggs, scallions, garlic, cayenne pepper, and chili powder.

DIY Deer Juice Garden Spray is a double punch for deer:
1. Deer rely heavily on their sense of smell for feeding, so the strong scented scallions and garlic, as well as the fragrant soap, works as the first line of defense.
2. The cayenne and chili powders should deter them if they decide to munch.

    I'll try anything. Thought the deer spray that smells terrible would work, but their noses must have gotten used or immune to the smell.
