|In my experience living inn deer country, the most reliable long term solution to a deer problem is to use a tall fence. Electric fencing can also be effective. Otherwise, you can try using the spray on repellants sold at garden centers. Read and follow the directions carefully and apply and reapply as indicated. Some people report better results by rotating different products so the deer do not become accustomed to just one and ignore it. Good luck!
