Deer Repellent for Wheat Farm
Deer Repellent for Wheat Farm
Deer are primarily browsers (of sticks and leaves), but will graze quite a little. The deer’s grazing depends on the season of the year and the availability of food. They sure do have preferences but during frigid temperatures, high water or drought, they tend to eat whatever is available to them.
Deer most definitely graze on wheat especially young and green ones in the late fall. Winter wheat, being a great food source during the first three months of the year, is the deer’s favorite when it is green and about four to five inches tall. How then do you keep deer away from your wheat farm so they don’t destroy your harvest by feeding on the young wheat?
- EMPLOY THE USE OF PALLET-STYLE REPELLENT: These pallets help keep deer away from your wheat farm by giving off scents that repel deer. No matter the size of your wheat farm, pallet-style scent repellent can effectively chase deer from it. Although this method is quite cheap compared to other repellents, but it demand more hands-on effort as it has to be continually distributed in the farm until deer learn not to return.
- ERECT PHYSICAL BARRIERS: The best way to ensure deer do not get to attack and damage your wheat is to barricade your wheat from their reach and view (if feasible). These barriers include but are not limited to fences and coverings such as floating row cover, plastic netting and chicken wire. Wheat farms are usually very large so employing the use of coverings may be impossible, erecting a fence becomes the best option in repelling deer from your wheat farm.
To successfully repel deer from your wheat using a fence, ensure the fence poses a sort of challenge to them. If the fence isn’t high enough and can be easily jumped over, Bambi might never go away but when you either introduce a sort of blockade or barrier on the fence (such as slanting the top of the fence at an angle away from the wheat) or making the height of the fence unapproachable for the deer, they tend to give up in no time.
