Deer Off® Deer & Rabbit Repellent Concentrate
- Product Review (submitted on June 1, 2018):
I have used Deer Off for years and love it ... especially being able to determine how much I mix (7-to-1 ratio): from a small 8 oz spray bottle to several gallons at a time. I used to use a "tree growers" two-part mix that also worked, but it had to be mixed in multi-gallon amounts and was sometimes wasteful/costly. Deer Off does not stink when prepared or applied (slight odor only), and I have seen no detrimental effects when using it on our potted flowers that the deer used to eat on my patio, nor on any of our trees or shrubs. You should spray blooms both before & after they open, or they are not continuously protected. Otherwise, Deer Off seems to linger for several months at least, and since deer are creatures of habit, that is enough to alter their feeding routes until I spray again. Of course, winter is another matter and I put up 8' fencing - the only sure way to keep the "walking stomachs" at bay. Bottom line - this is a great product that initially seems pricey; but, goes a long way (and time) to provide a versatile and effective means of protecting yard vegetation.
