Deer repellent
    #677518 - 07/09/13 10:05 PM (3 years, 4 months ago)

Just wanted to post that I tried coyote urine granules in mid spring this year on plantings around my house, Hawthorn, poplar, cedar, sweet cherry and have received NO deer damage.
No rabbit damage to my wife's annuals either.

I read somewhere that the key in having repellents actually work was to apply them in spring, before deer can "claim" a territory.

Can anyone verify or am I just lucky so far?

Well deer will avoid the area regardless of when you put it out there.  They will adapt to changing conditions.

I should have mentioned that this is what has worked for me, it even beats skydd and piss and human hair and dried blood and etc. And the research into stopping deer browsing before it can start or restart in an area is out there for the finding.
Deer have inflicted massive damage to my plantings every year I've had my place and I don't believe in coincidence.
They even eat the 4"-5" thorns of my black locust trees!

But I do believe in luck, still no verification?

I don't think you understand what I was saying.  Applying Cougar piss even after they know where the food is, can change where they are foraging.  When an herbivore detects the scent of a predator, they change their patterns. 

Deer don't want to be breeding when a top of the chain carnivore is hanging out.


So sure, doing it before they get there will help.  But they will also leave if they detect predators.

Thanks for the explanation. I get it now.

Sorry about the long lag getting back to this post, been busy.  :fbsnugs:


Of course the best repellant is a fence, strike that, TWO fences!



I read a story years ago in the mother earth news about a "chicken moat".
The author got fed up with critters ruining his garden so he ran two tall fences, 6 feet apart, round his garden and enclosed his chicken coop as well.
During the day the chickens ran around eating anything that came through the fence, seeds, bugs, etc. and the fence kept out hawks. being spaced too narrow for them to swoop in and too wide for the deer to jump over. Evidently the second fence stops them when they could just bound over a single fence.
I recall they buried a foot or so of the fence to stop burrowing pests but I can't imagine that stopping a woodchuck.
