We were thrilled the other day when we watched a deer enter our yard, sniff our shrubs, and walk away without a single nibble!"

Frequently Asked Questions on Deer Control & Repellent

Repelling deer with all-natural sprays is a safe and effective method to keep them out of your garden or yard, and works by emitting strong smells of predators, unpleasant tastes and odor which deter deer from approaching as they migrate through your neighborhood.

It is important to reapply these organic sprays regularly, especially after rain or watering, to ensure they remain effective. Deer are adaptable creatures, so it is recommended to switch up the type of all-natural spray used periodically to maintain their effectiveness. The all-Natural sprays we use can be applied directly to plants or around the perimeter of the area you want to protect.

Deer have a very strong sense of smell, and there are certain scents that they find repulsive, or that signal danger to them. Smells that may repel deer include strong fragrances like perfumes or colognes, and the strong scent of soap. Some people also swear by the use of certain essential oils, such as peppermint or lavender, which can be effective at repelling deer.

Another effective scent that repels deer is the smell of predator urine, such as coyote or fox urine. Deer associate this scent with danger and will often avoid areas where they can detect it. Similarly, the scent of other predators like bobcats or mountain lions can also be effective at repelling deer.

Ultimately, the effectiveness of these smells can vary depending on the individual deer and the specific situation, but it’s worth experimenting with different scents to find what works best for you. We’ve been doing this for many years now, and will put together a plan customized to your needs and area to find what works best for you and your property.

The best deterrent to keep deer off your property is an all-natural product that avoids environmental damage from lasting toxins, and instead uses a natural solution that’s safer for your family and pets as well.

We use an OMRI (organic materials certification organization) listed , all-natural deer repellents to deter deer from entering your property, eating your plants, kicking up your landscaping and depositing ticks on your property.

The repellent effects begin to deteriorate after around 3 weeks after application, which is why we recommend a treatment program that includes regular spraying of our eco-friendly, biodegradable every 21 days.

This ensures that migrating herds that come through your area will be repelled, and they’ll get out of the habit of grazing on your beautiful yard and landscaping whenever they come through the area.

Damage to landscape plantings and ornamentals from deer grazing can occur year-round, but it’s usually most severe in the winter and early spring when natural food sources are limited, driving deer herds to migrate and graze on landscaping and yards of nearby neighborhoods and commercial properties.

On top of the damage to plantlife and curb appeal, deer also bring with them disease risks. Ticks are carried to your yard by these deer, and other wildlife, so by properly and naturally deterring them from your property, you decrease the risk of contracting tick-borne illnesses near your property.

Deer are known for their agility and ability to navigate through all sorts of terrain types, including rocky hillsides, dense forests, fields and of course maintained yards in neighborhoods and on commercial properties. That being the case, there are certain surfaces that deer tend to avoid walking on.

One of the most notable examples is slippery or unstable surfaces, such as ice or wet rocks. These surfaces can be dangerous for deer and their hooves, increasing the risk of slipping and falling, which can result in injury or even death. Deer instinctually avoid migrating across such surfaces, and tend to avoid walking through sharp or thorny plants, as these can cause painful cuts and scratches on their sensitive hooves.

Migrating herds of deer can be a significant challenge for gardeners and farmers, as well as homeowners and landscapers, as they tend to graze on a wide variety of plants. However, there are several plants that repel deer due to their strong scents or unpleasant taste.

Some examples of plants that deer tend to avoid include lavender, sage, yarrow, daffodils, and marigolds. These plants have distinctive fragrances that deer find unappealing, and they can also contain compounds that make them taste bitter or even toxic to the animals. By incorporating these plants into your garden or landscape, you can passively help repel deer, on top of recommended spraying and other options, to protect your other plants from deer damage without resorting to harmful chemicals or unsightly fencing.

There are a number of things that they generally dislike or avoid, but one of the biggest things deer hate is the scent of humans. They are naturally wary of humans and can be easily spooked by the presence of human scent.

Additionally, deer are often repelled by strong, pungent odors, such as those produced by certain plants (like marigolds and lavender) or products that contain urine or other scents from predatory animals like coyotes and wolves. As prey animals, deer are always on the lookout for potential danger, so anything that signals a potential threat may cause them to avoid an area and keep moving on when they migrate through, rather than staying long enough to do damage and eat your plants.

By understanding what deer dislike, our years of experience help us to develop customized treatment plans to minimize their impact on landscaping, yards, gardens, crops, and other areas where deer may be unwanted.

Deer repellent works by emitting a scent or taste that is unpleasant to deer, causing them to avoid the area where the repellent has been applied. The active ingredients in deer repellent can vary depending on the product, but they commonly include natural compounds such as putrescent eggs, garlic, or capsaicin (a chemical found in chili peppers).

Some of these compounds can also mimic the smell or taste of a predator, which signals to deer that the area is not safe, so they should continue migrating on. Additionally, some deer repellents contain ingredients that create an uncomfortable sensation for deer, such as a burning or tingling feeling on the tongue (such as the aforementioned capsaicin/pepper).

Give us a call or send a message and we’ll find the best, all-natural deer repellent options for your area and situation, without toxic chemicals that can damage your soil biology, be dangerous for pets and children, and seep into the local environment.
