Best Used For:


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

Deer have highly elevated senses of smell and taste, which enable them to seek out edible food sources and detect potential predators. Deer Off® is the only deer repellent that effectively triggers both of these 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 Formula Delivers an Effective Warning

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.

Deer Off® Works Harder and Faster to Protect Your Yard

Containing the highest concentration of putrescent egg on the market, Deer Off® II works harder than the competition to keep your yard deer-free and beautiful. More egg means a stronger warning signal that will keep away pesky deer, rabbits and squirrels. And this powerful formula is fast-acting and proven to work – what more can you ask for in a deer repellent?

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.

Not happy By Nan

Previous reviews are correct when saying the sprayer with pump is a piece of JUNK. Hate buying crap product. Should have just gotten "Liquid Fence".

Not working on SoCal rabbits and squirrels By WaterDogMom

Who would have thought how much damage a little cottontail bunny could do to a lawn and plants? First of all, they're like see one, but there's NEVER just one! I started trying to repel one and now I have a family of 4...I have gone through a whole 32 oz bottle in about a week. The label says, "Repels up to 90 Days." I would be thrilled to get 1 or 2 days...I'll be calling Customer Service tomorrow. Oh, I have adult and youngster squirrels as pictured on the label which I don't mind because they seem to be satisfied with the birdseed droppings and don't bother the vegetation. The "Deer Off" also has absolutely no affect on the squirrels either. I really wanted this product to work, and I did follow directions, but it just does not repel my rabbits (or squirrels) in Southern California.

Negative 5 sprayer rating By P.O.

I bought two (48 oz.) bottles of deer off from Menards on 05/16/17. I went to use the first spray bottle this evening, and per instructions shook the bottle, and a large stream shot up continually through the pump handle, same time, pulled the trigger and the nozzle had no variation of stream. I had spray all over me. This spray pump is a piece of junk, I don't know who designed it, or makes it for you, but a change is needed. I just hope I didn't kill my plants by taking off the pump and just pouring the contents directly on them. I'm so upset with this experience. My hands and arms still stink, even after washing a couple of times, making me even more upset!!!!! Good luck of staying in business with this quality of product performance!!!!!

the sprayer sucks By jo

I agree with Angry. I just spent over 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get the liquid to come out of the pump sprayer and seal the pump so it stays pumped up. I finally poured it into the Liquid Fence bottle Which is the product I wanted to buy but settled for this since Menard's doesn't carry it anymore. Please put some instructions on the pump so people don't waste their time trying to make it work.

I really wanted this to work By tiggertiffin87

I drenched my roses, hydrangeas and coleus. But that same night I saw mamma deer nibbling in my hydrangeas and the two rose buds I had disappeared. My neighbors must use this since it didn't seem to phase the deer at all.

Clogged sprayer By Maggie

Spray worked for about five seconds, then clogged and couldn't get it to spray. After fooling with it the spray came out the top of the container (not the sprayer) and it got on me. So the spray function is making it unusable.

Response From Havahart®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Maggie,

This product is very thick and should be shaken very well for at least two minutes to ensure that it is well mixed. We apologize for this recent experience with the sprayer and would like to take this opportunity to make things right.

This product is covered under a one year warranty for replacement. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

Best deer repellent ever!!! By Loretta
We have lived in our home for 25 years and the deer problem got worse and worse. We tried many many products and this is the "only" one that truly works! My yard has many types of shrubs, flowers, perennials and every year they are destroyed by deer. This year after using deer off all my plants are beautiful (even ones I forgot I had). Only thing is that the 48oz red top sprayer does not work well because of the sprayer mechanism. All other bottles work great.
Response From Havahart®
Kelly : Consumer Relations Representative

We are so glad to hear that this product has worked to keep the deer away and allowed your garden to flourish.

When using the Deer Off® Deer & Rabbit Repellent (Model#: DO48RTU) it is important to shake vigorously and pump the top about 25 times to ensure it is mixed properly.

Love this stuff! By Daniel
Before using deer off my yard was in complete shambles. I wasn't able to plant a garden due to what wasn't eaten was trampled and ruined. My neighbors have also started using Deer Off since we live on a lake in the country and the deer are abundant throughout the year. Since most of us are using it we don't have so many deer dashing out in front of us on our way to work either! It's a win win product. Thank you for offering it!

Works Great in the Winter! By Debbie
Before Deer Off, they ate the plants right to the roots and killed them. Deer Off even works in the Winter!

Q.I don't have any bushes, only a lawn that I cut regularly and the deer hang out all the time. Will this stuff work on my lawn?

This product provides scent and taste barriers to repel deer, rabbits, and tree squirrels from browsing and feeding upon flowers, plants, shrubs, bulbs, trees, and seedling.  We recommend application only on those types of plants.

Q.Is this safe for vegetable gardens?

This product is not recommended for use on plants intended for consumption.

Q.I have never used this product and would like to try it, but have read a lot of reviews about the nozzle clogging. This is the main reason I stopped making a home made version of deer repellent. I see the product comes in several choices of delivery systems. Which one is the least prone to this problem?

This product contains putrescent whole egg solids, which causes it to be very thick. It is extremely important to shake any of our bottles for a minimum of 90 seconds prior to application. It is also recommended to shake the bottle periodically when spraying to ensure the contents remain mixed.
