So you have spent many hours of hard work cultivating, planting, and fertilizing your garden this spring. Now your tomatoes are about ready to be harvested, but they need a couple more days to ripen. The sun is up and the day has come to pick your homegrown tomatoes. But it’s too late! One hungry deer decided to eat your tomatoes for breakfast, before you could enjoy them.
I’m sure this has happened to many of you, it has to us. We have found several products that are great for these exact situations. Products that are safe to use around edibles but highly effective at repelling deer, rabbits, and other hungry critters.
Let’s start with Deer Scram!
Deer Scram is an all-natural granulated deer and rabbit repellent. Instead of spraying the leaves on the plants, you simply sprinkle a barrier around your plants. If they are clustered together, you can apply it around the perimeter of the area. Deer Scram convinces deer and rabbits that danger is close by, thus stoping them from feeding on your plants. Deer Scram will last for 30-45 days during the growing season and does not need reapplied after rainfall!
We started selling Deer Scram 5 years ago. After only a few months, we had customers coming to us requesting the 25 lb pail! View all our listings for Deer Scram here.
Garden Girls – An odorless, liquid alternative
Most liquid deer repellents have a terrible odor during and after application. Others are not safe to spray on edible fruits and vegetables. Garden Girls is an all-natural animal repellent meant specifically for these difficult situations. As an odorless spray, Garden Girls Vegetable Protector eliminates the natural food scent of your plants and makes them seem “fake” to deer, rabbits, groundhogs, chipmunks, and squirrels. They won’t eat what they can’t smell!
Garden Girls Vegetable Protector is made from ingredients that are exempt from residue tolerance requirements which makes it safe to use on vegetable gardens, fruit trees, etc. Even better yet, a portion of all purchases of Garden Girls repellents is donated to breast cancer research! All of these repellents from Garden Girls can be viewed here.
Avoid the need for unattractive temporary fencing and rest assured that your fruits and vegetables will be safe from the critters in your backyard with an all-natural deer repellent. We suggest you try one of these two products, we guarantee you will be very satisfied with the results.
