Deer are beautiful - when they're not enjoying the fruits of your labor by eating your entire garden after month of work! Here is a repellent recipe submitted to our site several years ago that we swear by!
4-6 hot peppers (Cayenne or Habanero)
6-12 gloves of garlic, depending on how strong they are
5 cups of warm water
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree it, then carefully funnel into a clean (recycled) milk jug. Put a cover/cap on the jug and allow it set OUTSIDE for a couple of days in the sun, away from children and pets.
Shake well before use. Pour or spray around the perimeter of plants (about 5 feet from edge of garden or flower beds) to deter deer. Do NOT spray
this mixture directly on your garden.
This is meant to create a perimeter to deter deer, NOT as a pesticide for bugs.
