How To Keep Deer Out Of GardensDo you have an open back yard where your garden is easily accessible to animals like deer? Then you may have already been on the hunt for deer deterrents, or homemade remedies that will keep deer out of your garden. Or maybe hunting season is closed and/or you don't own a gun (just kidding!).
|We don't want to see these in our garden!|
Today we'll talk about a few remedies that you can use from household items, or things that are easily available at any grocery store, that will help to deter deer away from your garden that you work so hard to keep up. These methods may apply to you if you are worried about the chemicals use in some of the deer deterrent sprays that you can get from gardening supply stores. While the containers may say they are safe for plants and for vegetables if you use it in your garden, sometimes it just doesn't feel right growing your plants in an unnatural way.
So we know that my methods will not include any store bought deer deterrent spray. I am actually going to narrow down to just two methods. Both of these methods, in my opinion, work the best because they do not require application everyday or every couple days, and their chances of actually working for you are very great! So here are the two best methods I have chosen to keep deer away from a garden:
- Sprinkling chili powder on your plants
- Adding pepper or mint plants to your garden
