I live on the sourthern coast of Maine and have an awful time with the
deer here. We have done fine over the years now with everything being
deer proof -- for us at least as deer in different areas will eat
At any rate, a friend of mine gave me this recipe and I used it on our
day lillies, and it worked !
Thought I'd just put it in here if someone else would like to try it.
Mix 1 egg with 1/2 cup milk.
Then add 1 tbs cooking oil and 1 tbs of dish detergent
Then add to 1 gallon of water.
Put into spray bottles and spray the lillies every two weeks.
If it rains, do it again.
You do not need to store the leftover in a fridge - we have ours on
our back porch in a big plastic container that once had pretzels from
They were coming each night and having such a nice little treat till I
did this - now they leave them alone.
Hope this will work for any of you out there like it has so far for
