Now there are three deer to worry about. A doe and two fauns, just take a peak at the video as they wander through our backyard.
A while back when I was looking into deer-in-the-garden solutions I contacted the Havahart company who specializes in animal safe repellents. I found a really interesting device and requested it to try out in my garden. It's a sprayer that is hooked up to a motion sensor. When the animal is in range it sets off the sprinkler the animal gets a surprise bath! The idea is that they won't like the bath, will get scared off and will avoid the area in the future. I received the spray device about 6 weeks ago but haven't been able to test it yet due to the unpredictable events of life. I'll set it up this week and see how it functions - I'm sure my kids will enjoy giving it a test in the hot and humid days of summer. After that I'll arrange it to see if I can spray and repel the wandering deer.
Have you ever tried Spray Away? If so how did it work for you?
