Model #DO48RTU

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® deer repellent effectively triggers both of these senses, using a blend of putrescent egg, garlic and capsaicin that alerts deer of nearby predator activity and stops them from feeding on your plants. Just one application of Deer Off® repels for up to 90 days.

Scent Deterrent Yet Odorless To Humans

Putrescent egg is a proven deer deterrent, which works by imitating the scent of a dead animal, alerting deer’s sharp sense of smell. This scent indicates the presence of a nearby predator and triggers a natural flight response. Garlic and capsaicin add to Deer Off®’s repelling power by giving your plants an unbearable spicy flavor, which makes deer think twice before taking another taste.

Deer Off® dries odorless to humans.

Best I’ve found By Nan

This stuff works, PERIOD. We are in an urban area and deer come right up to our window or front door. Sprayed my roses and hydrangea once and had no deer coming anymore. It worked for months. Unhappy with spray nozzle though. It clogged immediately and I had to transfer to my own plastic sprayer.

I don't know if it works By grandmaster
I bought this repellent about 2 weeks ago and today I used it. The pumping part was not working correctly and most of the liquid was coming out the pumping area instead of the nozzle. It looked rusty. I transferred the liquid into a sprayer and it worked better but by that time I finished the entire container. I hope it gets the rabbit away.

Spray system leaks By Dave86

I have been using this with mixed success. Squirrels still come but seem to be destroying plants less - will see, it is still early. The spray system with the bottle leaks without spraying and had to get a spray bottle from WalMart and transfer contents to be able to use it.

Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Dave,

If too much pressure has been built up inside the bottle, it will need to be released to prevent leakage. We apologize for this experience and would like to learn more.

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) with any questions.

Pump problems By carold1234

The pump bottle worked fine the first time I used it. Later I couldn't get it to work even after taking it apart and cleaning it out.

Response From Havahart®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Carol,

Thank you for sharing this feedback. Before spraying this product, it is recommended to shake the bottle very well for up to two minutes to ensure that is is well blended. If the spray bottle is not working, we suggest soaking the nozzle in warm water.

Works Better than described By daveo44
This is the best product ever to get the rabbits from eating beautiful pants down to the ground. They still come into the yard but stay away from the sprayed area.
Buy will not be disappointed.

Bad nozzel By baffled

The stuff appears to be working, but how hard is it to make a sprayer that does not leak all over when pumped?

Seems to work so far By VT gardener
Although the delivery was delayed and box damaged, the pump and sprayer work well. The deer are not around yet so no idea if it is repelling them. I would suggest adding directions to work the sprayer.

Deer Off By Deer Messenger
I purchased this a month ago and the product appears to repel the deer, however, the spray bottle does not work correctly resulting in not spraying or spraying in a stream so large that I am wasting the liquid spray. I have tried cleaning the nozzle but it clogs back up. I have advised Havahart and they offered a refund or exchange but I needed my invoice which I didn't keep. KEEP YOUR RECEIPT.
