I have been managing deer by moving plants to an inaccessible area (fence 8' high) in my front yard. The all day sun is in a part of my backyard which deer frequent. I have used chemical repellants, stacked bags and bags of leaves on the garden perimeter and now I am planing peonies on a tight border around the veggie garden. I had no veggie garden this year in hopes of breaking the deer habit. Any other suggestions?
Along with the deer fence I use Liquid Fence applied every 2 months. It is important to keep the nearby plants sprayed at 2 month intervals to keep the bad taste and smell repellant fresh keep away deer and other animals such as ground hogs and rabbits. I have also used a tape impregnated with a deterrent as a low fence about 2 1/2'to 3' high around the area.
Perhaps he best deterrent is a dog with one of those buried wires around an area and a collar on the dog
