Scramble up some eggs, leave raw, let set a few days to ripen, put in a
spray bottle and spray everything in site. The deer will steer clear.
Works for my mother-in-law. OMG does it ever stink!
Must be reapplied after a good rain.
| : Just whining... planted my first-ever vegetable garden this year, and
| : it's been doing really well, but earlier this summer, I came out to
| : find the tops of my bush beans munched off and a big deer hoofprint in
| : the soil. I strung up that black deer netting 4 feet high around the
| : beds, my beans recovered, and all was well for a few months.
| : I came home last night and went out check the garden, and those sneaky
| : bastards RIPPED DOWN the black netting and snacked up my bush beans
| : again. My husband thought it must have been neighborhood kids, but no,
| : we had hoofprints again.
| : I know my mistake was putting the netting too close to the plants; the
| : leaves were touching the netting in many places, so I guess they proved
| : to be too much temptation. Next year - 6 foot fencing three feet away
| : from the beds.
| : Grumblerumblegrrrrr.
