The Q&A Archives: Deterring Deer from the Vegetable Garden

Question: How can you keep deer and other animals away from your vegetable garden? Elizabeth Favre Sterling Hts.

Answer: The short answer to keeping deer away from vegetables is a fence or a good dog. Those are the most reliable methods. You can try many different home rememdy repellents suc has cayenne pepper, garlic sprays, moth balls, human hair and Dial soap, or commercial repellents such as Hinder, Ropel, animal urines and motion detector/water shooting devices, but they only work temporarily. If you have a particular area that they like, consider a fence to discourage the deer from eating all your hard earned produce.
