A primary complaint of gardeners concerns deer and their foraging habits. They devour many shrubs, apples and the fruit of other trees, vegetable gardens and ornamental gardens.
Deer are persistent and once they have established feeding patterns, it is difficult to deter them from returning to the same location. It is best to consider your options for minimizing deer browsing now, before trees and valuable spring plantings are damaged.
While commercially available products may seem like a good alternative, they are generally only effective for a few days at best. The deer return shortly after the product has been applied, maintaining their established feeding pattern.
A more effective approach is a properly managed deer repellent program. This type of program can deter feeding for months, which means less foraging and less damage to your landscape.
