Looking for a way to keep deer out of your flowers, bulbs or vegetables? Havahart® has the following suggestions to help you decide the best control option for you.
A deer repellent is a good alternative to a physical barrier and can also be less expensive.
Havahart® Deer Off® provides a 1, 2 punch by repelling deer by scent and taste. This patented dual deterrent is available in ready-to-use or economical concentrate formulas.
Havahart® Deer Off® keeps deer from browsing on plants, flowers and hedges for 2-3 months. More frequent application may be necessary for heavy pressure areas.
An electronic deer repellent can also be useful and is easy-to-use, convenient and quick. The Havahart® electronic deer repellent uses a unique patented technology that attracts deer to posts with a lure scent. Then it harmlessly repels deer from your yard or garden with a mild electronic shock.
A motion activated water repellent is also a useful way to protect vegetable gardens and shrubs from marauding night time visitors. Easy-to-use, convenient and quick, Spray Away has motion and heat sensor triggers that detect an animal near by. Similar to a sprinkler, once activated, the electronic valve releases 3 seconds of spray from an attached hose.
If deer are hungry enough they will jump a fence for food, but more than likely that will walk through them, which is why if you are using a fence to keep deer out of you yard, it needs to be sturdy, electrified or a combination of both.
By building an eight feet or higher fence with an electric wire at the top, deer will learn quickly to move on.
Fi-Shock®, one of Havahart's sister brands, offers a wide variety of electric fencing solutions that can help you keep deer off your property.
