I'm trying to find a comprehensive list of plants in the above subject. I know they won't eat Brugs and Datura but what about things like Mother of Millions, Jade plants, Elephant Bush, Pride of Barbados and so on and so on.

I found this device and am wondering if anyone has used it - http://www.niteguard.com/ and if so, did it work for you in keeping deer away.

Finally got my trail cam out and setup. Here's how it looked at my house early this morning.

I'm finding that there's almost no reliable list of what they won't eat. So I created the Deer Cage, which is a protective barrier that fits easily and inconspicuously around trees and shrubs, and has many other uses as well. You can check it out at [url=www.deercage.com]www.deercage.com[/url].

@ramsayh - that's a nice concept. It would cost me one of my social security checks to get all I need Hilarious! Oddly enough since I moved the potted Hibiscus in the back they haven't touched them and the ones I have growing in the front on the side of the house haven't been touched. My trail cam hasn't picked up any roaming around the front either in a week or so.
