How can I keep deer out of the garden?

Fencing is not an option as the garden is as big as a garage. Have tried hair in bags hung by the garden, those sprays you can buy to keep deer away, scarecrows, fake owls, etc. Nothing works!

    Irish Spring soap (original) shaved and placed in cheesecloth or scattered on the ground. Works wonders! They hate the scent!

    sprinkle the human hair around the garden and have also heard human urine around the outside of the garden

    Don't have to pay for either so worth a try. Smell of humans suppose to keep them away. Go to your hair dresser and ask her to keep the hair cuttings for you.....



  • Use a vegetable peeler on the bar of Irish Spring soap and scatter shavings around plants and bushes. There's a product called Bobbex that works really well if you have something you want to protect though!


    I read this from Gma Kirk: A farmer gave me a gross recipe for repellent...but it works. cup or two of urine, tablespoons of crushed garlic, and cayenne pepper, two eggs in a gallon jug, shake well, fill rest of the way with water. Cap and let age a week. Then you drizzle small stream around the perimeter of whatever you want to keep them from eating - works on rabbits too!
