They are eating my hostas! I am 77 years old and enjoy my yard and plants and shubs, but the deer are raising havoc in my yard ,because of my age and disability I need an easy fix.

    Deer absolutely love hosta plants. I use a grater to shred bars of Irish spring soap and put around the hostas. It needs to be done again after a rain fall. It is working for me so far and I have lots of deer and hosta plants!

    You can spray or dust with Deer Away, and again after each significant rain.

    I found deer repellant at Lowes that are small "cans" on wires bases that you stick in the ground. So far the deer have left my Hostas alone, and are eating the neighbor's instead!

    If you go to the beauty shop, ask for some hair clippings to sprinkle near your hostas. Deer smell human and run.

    Irish Spring soap shavings will likely do the trick!
