Baffled Deer?

Category: Mangoman's Blog | Posted: Mon Jun 23, 2014 5:59 pm

I may have stumbled onto something by chance that appears to repel deer. I used a commercial deer repellent last year that was basically liquified eggs. It worked ok but would clog up my sprayers and the smell was awful. I decided to try making my own solution. Anytime I use a fresh egg, I crush the shell and throw it into a bucket of water that I have in the garage. I take a trigger mist bottle, put three squirts of aloe vera liquid hand soap into the bottle and then fill it with the egg water. Shake it a litle and every three days or so, I spray my hostas with this stuff. Might be my imagination but I think the hostas look shiny and healthier and so far, no four legged munchers have chewed them to the ground. Any body have any thoughts on this? The deer don't bother my veggies or other ornamentals. Knock on wood. The veggies are doing well. Many small pepperfish peppers, small eggplants, cukes, nice chard and kale. Got 2-3 qts. of strawberries and 2 meals of asparagus. Peace
