If you’re unlucky enough to live in an area where there are deers roaming rampant at night devouring your plants, there must be some remedies to discourage deer. I have read about blood meal, human hair or soap hanging on the fence. You cannot blame the deer from devouring your plants. After all, we are invading their home turf. Here is a formula from Roses of Yesterday and Today that I read:
If you cover your plants well with it, repeating after rainy weather, you will keep the deer away.
- Put two eggs in a blender with 1/2 cup of water. Blend very well, at least 2-3 minutes at high speed.
- Add 2 cups water and 8
tablespoons of Tabasco
sauce and some garlic juice if available.
Blend. Put into plastic bottle - add water to top and refrigerate.
- Pour contents into 24 oz. to 1 liter plastic bottle with fine spray trigger handle.; Spray plants thoroughly. WORKS FOR ALL PLANTS THAT DEER OR OTHER ANIMALS LIKE. (if you add garlic juice will also help with aphids, spider mites, blackspot, etc.)
