Deer Damage & Deer Damage Control Methods
There are five basic deer damage control methods commonly used to reduce deer damage:
1) deer resistant plants
2) deer repellant
3) electric fence
4) scare tactics
5) physical barriers
Among these techniques, there are literally dozens of variations of deer repellant, several options for physical barriers, numerous scare tactics, bait and non-baited electric fence, and many plants deemed "deer damage resistant". Everything that you have heard that reduces deer damage, or keeps deer away from your plants has worked for someone at sometime. The problem is that most deer damage control methods only perform for a short period of time and most likely will not work for everyone.
