Before you begin to repel deer and rabbits, here are some helpful ideas to consider.
Deer leave behind ragged leaves, missing areas, and frequently just stems. Their droppings are like rabbits, shaped in elongated pellet form. Know which plants lose their blooms and why, as to not be mistaken for deer damage.
Deer are concentrate selectors, which means that they eat or “cherry-pick” the most nutrient-rich plant parts that are best tasting. This explains why the tops of your plants, blooms, and buds, are eaten whilst the rest of the plant is still intact.
The average deer can eat up to 7 pounds of food per day. In the U.S alone, billions of dollars are lost yearly to deer-damaged crops. If an area is plentiful in resources a deer will make it apart of their “home range” or where they live and bed. If left undisturbed, deer can then repopulate and stay in that area year after year. Deer are creatures of habit. If they feed on a particular landscape in the spring, you can bet they’ll be back to feed in the fall. Our product will help to disrupt their natural feeding habits and repel them out of their home range.
Deer are habitual creatures that often feed at night to avoid being seen by people and prey. During these late-night hours, deer eat heavily, which is why you might not see them during the daytime.
Deer fencing is always an option; it can be an expensive proposition and an unreasonable one for large areas. Not to mention large fencing can take away from the beauty of a manicured landscape or garden. Deer fencing is the most effective means of controlling deer populations and may be a long-term option to consider.
When using a fence, keep in mind that deer can jump almost eight feet high! We’ve also had customer accounts of rabbits digging under or going through gardeners’ fences. For these reasons, people often use Deer and Rabbit MACE in combination with fencing.
It may be surprising to note that there are more than 100 different sub species of dear worldwide. They are situated everywhere asides from Antarctica because of the excessive cold.
Just like the name suggests, this is a deer that has a patch of white around part of its tail.
This deer has a beautiful coat that is a shade of red. They frequently have a colour which seems darker and may seem like brown in most areas.
The reindeer seem to be appealing to people of various ages because of the relationship they have with the holiday season.
This is the largest of the various species of deer. The males can reach a weight of about 1800 pounds.
This deer has a tusk instead of antler. Regardless, they have been proven to be a type of dear genetically.
The Axis Deer is also recognized as the Chital Deer. The fact that the white sots their young have do not vanish is one of their most unique trait.
The Elk is a massive deer species and that has a stature which is unique. The males have a proud design to which makes them stand out.
Depending on the region it lives, this deer could be medium or small in size. They have very small heads and legs.
This deer is average sized. A male which is full grown can around 330 pounds and their antlers can spread by 39 inches.
The sambar deer is often mistaken for the Elk because of its body which is long and heavy alongside thin, long legs. Their antlers which are very longs can develop some points on them.
This is a species of deer which is small and beautiful. They are frequently the same size as family dogs.
This is a deer which is considered medium sized. They have a coat which is light brown alongside white spots. This is one of the species of deer that still have their spots after a few months of being born.
This is a smaller subspecies of the white dear. The male can weigh about 50 to 70 pounds.
This is known as one of the larger species of deer. They are also known to have ears which are larger than others in comparison to body size.
This deer can blend perfectly into its surroundings because of the light tan coloring it has. They also have some patches of white along the throat and around the lips.
Asides from the fact that this species of deer look very cute, they are one of the smallest species in the globe. Their size is one of the reasons why people are interested in them.
Because of their small size, the full grown adults are often mistaken for the younger generation, the size of the fully grown adults may be from 30 to 60 pounds in size.
Some of the species of deer identified are already extinct. Most of them have been for millions of years. They were unable to adapt to the changing environment o keep living for various reasons.
Below is a list of deer resistant plants compiled through research and recommendations by nurseries, landscapers, commercial farmers and co-ops from around the United States and Canada.
When deer are hungry, they will typically eat just about anything with the exception of “daffodil” and “narcissus”. Deer tend to dislike plants and vines with sticky or with cotton/fuzzy leaves. Deer will also usually avoid pungent smelling plants with hard sharp thorns.
Keep in mind, deer located in different geographical areas of the country will be attracted to different plant varieties. This is attributed to their ability to adapt to cold weather and food shortages.
Just like any starving creature, if deer are hungry – they will eat anything that isn’t poisonous or protected by a commercial grade deer repellent.

In this article we will discuss mechanical deer deterrents. Deer deterrent is referred to something that stops or restrains deer from acting through their normal behavior. The term deterrent is generally defined as an ability or strength to defend a territory or strike back enough to dissuade opponent from attacking. But usually, when we mention about deer deterrents people often envision a hideous ten foot fence that surrounds a great attractive landscape or garden. Those physical fences are indeed type of deterrents yet because of innovation and increasing need for such tool, mechanical deer deterrents are created. This type of deterrents currently represents a huge portion of deer deterrent products.
Mechanical deer deterrent is a device that repels animals through causing stimulus on their senses including sense of hearing, sight, and/or touch. Generally, mechanical deer deterrents products are categorized depending on the senses triggered. Among of those categories are the following:
A loud shuddering sound that comes from a certain device is effective the first few instances that deer tries to invade your territory. But this is only effective on a tolerable number or deer population. This deterrents may include deer chaser, scarecrow sprinkles, and ultra-protect ultrasonic animal repellant. The latter tend to create ultrasonic sounds that scare animals and keep them out of the place. Other kind also produces sounds that are threatening for animals.
As the name implies, this deterrent tends to stops or deter a deer through trigging their sense of sight. This usually works through trickery. Basically, this needs to be placed outdoor or the end point of your place to serve as a threat for animals trying to trespass. Once they have seen this, they will usually reroute and will tend to avoid the place. Among this sight-based deterrents are flashing lights and tangle foot repelled ribbon. Flashing lights can be a general category. Lots of products might be included here. The principle is pretty simple, the animals are usually startled by the onslaught of flashing bright lights and so will change direction. Some of this products are operated by motion sensor. Tangle foot repeller ribbon, on the other hand, uses holographic image to direct sunlight reflections to create random patterns across the yard.
This works through causing physical irritation or pain to the deer. It do irritate the deer through generating an electric shock once the animal get in touch with the device but those are usually harmless. The electric shock is just enough to keep the animal away from your yard. For example, a wireless fence emits a sweet smell that attracts deer but creates an electric shock.
Mechanical deer deterrents tend to be much more effective and safe compared to the usual deterrents including hard and bulky fences. Unlike the traditional deer deterrents which are often tough to implement and even poses physical danger to animals, mechanical products are specifically designed to impose threatening signals to the animals without harming them physically. You can now keep your yard free from destructive animals without hurting anyone.

Deer Ticks can cause Lyme disease is usually the consequence of a deer tick bite. Even though some would say that people who live in the city are safe, they are wrong. Deer ticks easily attach themselves to pets and if you have been spending some time outdoors, your dog, for instance, may carry deer ticks.
These tiny insects can easily pass on to a human host, thus transmitting a Lyme disease infection. This happens, because a deer tick is a parasite that inserts its mouth parts into the host’s skin and sucks blood for a few days. If a deer tick is infected, it will carry the Borrelia bacteria in its midgut. When the tick bites its host, this Lyme disease infecting bacteria is released in the host’s blood stream.
Lyme disease attacks the central nervous system and can leave the sufferer completely paralyzed. Even though it cannot be cured completely, the good news is that this condition can be kept under control with proper medical treatment. It is most important to recognize the symptoms and get medical treatment as soon as possible. Early treatment can be very beneficial when treating Lyme disease.
However, the best method is to prevent deer tick bites, rather than treat and one of the best ways to do this is by making sure that your pets wear parasite repellant collars. A further step you can take is to make sure that your surrounding outdoor area is free of deer ticks by using an effective deer repellent.
One option is to treat the area with an all-natural deer repellent. Deer repellents cone in several different varieties. Deer repellent products that contain fermented putrescent egg solids are considered the best all natural method of treating areas inhabited by foraging deer. University studies have concluded fermented putrescent egg solids work best.
Another method to consider is by acquiring Beneficial Nematodes – microscopic round worms that kill deer ticks – and release them in a special clay solution that you then spray on the area you want to treat.
In the end, detouring deer populations from areas frequented by humans can reduce the number of deer tick bites and thus reduce the number of persons contracting Lyme disease. Make every effort to deer proof your yard and surrounding areas. Treat areas with Deer Mace Deer Repellent and reduce deer populations in your area.
