There are many repellents on the market. So what works and what makes them unique. We have sold each of these deer and animal repellents in our retail hardware store for years. They are consumer-tested products that are safe and easy to use. Some prefer water soluble products such as Liquid Fence or Deer Solution. These products can be sprayed directly to your plants. They dry fast and effectively disguise your valuable flowers and vegetables from deer and hungry rabbits! Animals won't eat what doesn't smell and taste appropriate. Also consider Deer Scram. This is a dry granule that can be used all year long. Deer Scram works by striking fear into animals that come near. Some are skeptical of animal repellents, but we recommend these with confidence. It is always important to apply them as the directions recommend. Use them all season and you will enjoy wonderful plants and blooms all summer long.
