      Old Standby's

      Here are a few tips and ideas we've collected in the past 10 or so years:

      1. Dial Soap or Lifebuoy Soap Carefully drill a hole in the bar and string fishing line or jute through it. If using this method, you'll need to hang one bar from each small tree (or fence post) or every 3 feet on larger trees.

        I am fortunate that I do not have a problem with deer in my garden. However, my parents live out in the country and they are constantly having to share their harvest with the deer! I'm going to print out these tips and give them to my parents. Thanks!
