Model #DO128RTU

Best Used For:


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

Long-lasting Deer Off® is the only deer repellent with a patented Dual Deterrent System™ that repels in two ways - by scent and taste. Plus, it is long-lasting, repelling for up to 90 days before needing to be reapplied.

Scent Repellent Yet Odorless To Humans

Deer Off® contains putrescent egg, which repels deer and other animals by targeting their heightened senses of smell. Its odor warns animals of nearby predator activity, because it mimics that of decaying prey. This causes deer to forage in other areas. As a second layer of protection, Deer Off® also contains two powerful taste deterrents - garlic and capsaicin. Because deer detest the intense spiciness of these ingredients, they won't want to eat your protected plants.

Deer Off® dries odorless to humans.

Not so good By Bill

I have used this product several times and like others did not have much luck. Also I would like to know if you need to apply it after each rain? I was using it and sprayed one night and it rained during the night. The next morning we left early that morning for an over night trip. When we returned all the plants were gone!

Great service By Rayhe
I have been looking at many stores for Deer Off spray to protect my flowers and plants from deer eating them. Finally found Deer Off at Havaheart. Ordered and received the shipment of product promptly. Very happy with price, product and service.

Repels rabbits and squirrels By DARS

I bought 2 gallons for my Mom since the deer were chewing up her Hosta plants. The deer are still returning to her backyard, so they are not being repelled yet. I have sprayed every plant in her backyard. On a positive note, the squirrels and rabbits have left the yard.

Whoa nelly....the smell! No wonder Deer stay away. By Trail Girl
I've been using this product for a few weeks now and it definitely keeps the deer away, as long as I use it regularly. I believe it's supposed to build up with time and not be needed quite as much. On some plants, it seems to be working this way, on others, I still need to spray. The only negative I've experienced thus far is that the sprayer doesn't always spray a nice full stream, but more of a spurt. If I spray more slowly and let it build up a little pressure, it sprays a bit better, but that can be a timely process when one simply wants to get it done (so as not to end up smelling stinky oneself). (And yes...I smile as I write this.)

Didn\'t Work at All By The One Jack
I purchased this on a recommendation from a user that said it worked well for her.

For me, it did nothing. I applied it per the instructions' and the deer loved it that night.
All was gone by the next morning. Maybe I have bear and not deer. I don't think so.
My next try will be the dried blood. If that doesn't work, my rifle is next upl

Great product, hard to apply By Georgia Peach
This is the best spray I have found for deer and rabbits. However, it is so hard to spray it. It seems to clog every sprayer I try, even when I shake it continuously. I was very disappointed that my latest order came with a hand pump sprayer instead of the battery operated sprayer. Even though the battery sprayer often clogged, it was helpful for those of us with hand issues. There is no way I can hand spray even half of my yard. So I have a great product but can't get it out of the container onto the plants.

Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Deer Off® contains putrescent egg, which repels deer and other animals by targeting their heightened senses of smell. Its odor warns animals of nearby predator activity, because it mimics that of decaying prey. This causes deer to immediately want to flee to safety. Because of the egg solids, this product can be thick. When applying, we recommend shaking the bottle very vigorously, similar to a paint can. This will help break up the product and ensure that it sprays easily. If the nozzle has become clogged, it can be soaked in warm water for 15-20 minutes, then rinsed well.

We appreciate this valuable feedback and hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.

Deer Off trains deer not to like eat my plants! By Nancy
I spray Deer Off on all newly planted "Deer Resistant" plants to train the deer not to like them. As head of my community Gardeners Group, I recommend this product to all members and residents who call with questions. I previously used Deer Away.

Q.Would this work to keep cows away from our property?

This product works on deer, rabbits, and squirrels, but not cows.

Q.1 gallon sprayer bottle (deer & rabbit repellent) 128 oz, sprayer nozzle always seems to clog! Any ideas to help unclog?

This product contains putrescent egg solids, which are very thick and may begin to settle to the bottom of the bottle when spraying. Before spraying, we recommend vigorously shaking the bottle for one-two minutes. Occasionally agitating the bottle while spraying will also help to keep the product from separating.

Q.How much coverage does one 128 oz. bottle of Deer Off® Ready-to-Use provide?

One 128 oz. bottle protects up to 2,000 sq. ft.
