Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent - 3 Pack
- Product Review (submitted on July 10, 2017):
I have about 40 of the Havahart electronic deer stakes. Our 1/3rd acre yard and flower garden was featured in the Wichita KS Master Gardener's annual tour last year so keeping the deer out is important. We are located next to a wildlife refuge and with no fence we have to be creative. Maybe because of our large deer population I find that every plant and every shrub I want to protected must have an electronic stake. Staking only the deer entry points does not solve the problem. I have them at entry points and wherever plants are that deer eat. They are effective but each planting bed needs 1 to 3 of the posts. Rain and lawn watering discharges them and washes off the scent. They will recharge after a rain but need new scent applied. Even without rain I re-scent at least once a week. One issue I have found and need to solve is some of the electronic stakes get water into the electronic head. The plastic weld seams or moisture wicking is causing water to get into the heads. Once wet inside some don't work again.
