A Scent They Fear and a Taste They Can’t Standy

Deer and other small animals possess highly elevated senses of smell and taste, which enable them to detect edible food sources and potential predators. Deer Off® is the only deer repellent that triggers both senses, using a patented blend of putrescent egg, garlic and capsaicin that alerts deer of nearby predator activity and stops them from feeding on your plants.

Powerful Scent Deterrent Yet Odorless To Humans

Putrescent egg is proven to repel deer, and it works by mimicking the scent of a dead animal, which targets their sharp sense of smell. This scent indicates the presence of a nearby predator, triggering a natural flight reaction in deer. What’s more, the intense spiciness of garlic and hot peppers makes those persistent browsing deer think twice before taking another taste. Deer Off® dries odorless to humans.

Weather-Resistant Protection That Lasts Up to 3 Months

Deer Off® is rain-resistant and gives you season long control. Plus it lasts up to 90 days - over twice as long as the competition - so you can spend less money and time reapplying.

Repel Rabbits and Squirrels Too!

Deer Off® is like a deer proof fence that also keeps out smaller critters like rabbits and squirrels, so you can use one formula save your plants from three of the most common garden nuisances.

Deer Off® Deer & Rabbit Repellent Concentrate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My garden is lush and beautiful I have used Deer Off EXCLUSUVELY for the past 15 years, both in the Low Country of SC and now in the mountains of Asheville, NC. It is extremely effective!   When I moved to Asheville one year ago, neighbors kept telling me that I was wasting my time planting hostas and other lovely plants that were attractive to deer. I told them that all you had to do was to spray regularly with Deer Off. They laughed at me, and of course did not take the advice of someone they considered too new to the area to understand the eating habits of deer.   Well, my garden is lush and beautiful, with hostas thriving and in bloom all over, while theirs has been decimated by the local deer population. And my neighbors STILL won't admit I'm right! I would not waste my money on another deer repellant. I have even grown to like that garlicky aroma of Deer Off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They can eat grass !! I live adjacent to a park with LOTs of deer roaming. I use fencing in the winter because I cannot spray, but between March and December, my Deer Off does the job alone and never fails me. I have tried many other products and remedies, but this is the only one that REALLY works. The concentrate is also the cheapest of the sprays I have tried when calculated over the cost per gallon ..... and I mix as little or as much as I need ..... doing everything from my hemlocks to planters on my patio. I love this product ... period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started using Deer Off We have about 3 acres of plants and flowers. Every year the deer eat my tulips as soon as they bloom. This year we used DeerOff, all my tulips looked beautiful and hung in til the end. I started spraying my Hastas plants and they have not eaten any of those yet either. I actually dont see the deer hang around as much as I used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deef Off has been wonderful My experience with Deer Off has been wonderful! In the past the deer in my backyard were awful, they ate close to everything! Including my hostas, lilies, crocus, hydrangeas, and my tulips. Sine I've been using Deer Off it's made all the difference! Not only do the deer stay away so do the rabbits! Thank you Deer Off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I've been using it 4 or 5 years and it works great. The deer used to eat our hosta and daylilly all the time now they barely nibble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from organic farmer use this product for many years deer love pepper plants with a twice monthly spray limit damage to almost zero remember the new growth is not treated so more frequent applications are a must for total protection not a cheap product but well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deer hate the taste of Deer Off It's obvious that Deer Off works because when I sprayed my pansies, the deer ripped it out of the ground then spit it out, whole, so I was able to replant it. AND it keeps them away from my hostas!
Date published: 2014-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deer protection I have lots of hostas and lots of deer. I use this product 2-3 times a summer (depending on how rainy a season it is) and the deer leave my hostas alone. Without protection, the deer mow the hostas to the ground. This is better than some other products in that it dries clear and thus doesn't detract from the beauty of the foliage.

I am looking for a deer repellent with capsaicin only. Do not want putrescent eggs. Do you have a product with only capsaicin?

Asked by: beth158
Our Deer Away® Deer Repellent (model DA32RTU-2) has garlic and white pepper as the active ingredients. We do not have a product with just capsaicin as the active ingredient for deer.

Will it work on grass. Rabbits are mowing down my lawn.

Asked by: Bigjoe
This product is intended for treatment of smaller areas such as plants, shrubs and flowers. It is not recommended for widespread application on your lawn.
Answered by: Consumer Relations
Date published: 2016-10-18

Does the capsaicin ingredient burn tender plants, e.g. anemone, labrador violet, foam flower?

Asked by: Nick
We recommend testing this product on a small area of the plant prior to widespread application, as each individual plant may react differently.

Ref Deer Off concentrate: When mixed to the 1/7 ratio is the shelf life affected? I'm wondering if I should mix for each use or pre-mix the entire 32 oz. Thanks, John

Asked by: Bruno5216
This product can be mixed all at once or portioned out based on what is needed at the time of mixing as it does not have an expiration date. It is very important to shake the product extremely well when mixing.

Deer are nibbling on my 1-4 year old fir trees during the winter months when snow is on the ground and food is scarce. The website indicates Deer Off should not be applied below 40 degrees F. Is there an alternative product for winter temperatures?

Asked by: ToddR
For colder temperatures, we recommend our Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent, model 5250.

How soon (early) can I use this product?  I have snow yet on the ground, and I'm sure more is to come. I have a  specific area in my fenced in yard, (to keep dogs in)  and I have a rabbit issue that I need to address, ASAP.  Thank you. Pegster

Asked by: Pegster
We do not recommend applying this product when temperatures are below 40°F. We would recommend waiting until temperatures are consistently above 40°F before applying.
