Deer Repellent

This Sparked Me!

Deer do not like strong scents - hang inexpensive car air freshner trees near tender plants to keep the deer away. Added bonus your yard smells lovely.

    This is good to know, especially about the deodorant soap. I have an idiot neighbor that set up a blind not too far from my house, and I'm going to try it. I have goats, and I've seen the deer in with them. It's really awesome, but I don't want them in my yard. Other than that, everything else is fair game.

    Even cheaper: get strong smelling deodorant soap and rub it on the trunks of trees or fence. Deer stay away because it smells like people. One bar does my whole garden for a year.

Also works on deer blinds to thwart the hunters (if any of you are hunt saboteurs like me!!!)
