First things first let us try to understand what this kind of animal is and what it does to your garden. Well, this an animal that is usually found mostly in the woods and therefore you will not expect to find it in urban settings and so people who are going to find this post useful are mostly the ones that stay out of town.
A deer will invade can invade either your garden or lawn and start to feed on any plants that you have grown in there.
What they usually fancy a lot is the smaller growing plants in your landscape and the time of the year that they are most likely to be seen is during spring as this is usually the time of the year when the small plants begin to sprout.
So what exactly can you do to be able to get rid of these unwanted animal rodents and stop them from damaging the plants that are in your garden? As I mentioned earlier, there are various ideas that can be used to do this as mentioned below.
- Natural methods
- Use of sprays and concentrates
- By use of electronic devices
- Ticks and Fencing
These are the major ways that can be applied to get rid of deer in your garden or lawn. Let us now look at them one by one.
Natural deer repellent home remedies
As the word goes this involves the use of natural methods that anyone can be able to do at his or her home and mostly involves natural resources that can be readily found in our environment. One of these is the use of plants, and there are several natural deer repellent plants that one can be able to plant in their garden and these will help to get rid of these unwanted animals. Let us start with a list of deer repellent plants and flowers:

These are just a few of them that are resistant to them. You can be able to find more of these by doing more research. One thing that you should have in mind that they really like to eat roses and I think it is mainly because of their fragrance so if you are planning to grow flowers in your garden then these homemade ones should work just fine.
Now let us then take a look at the best deer repellent plants.
You have to also note that this does not mean that if you have these in your garden then they will not be damaged or eaten at all. It also depends on the season of the year and also the nutrient that is needed by this animal at that time so it is not guaranteed that they will not eat them.
It also greatly depends on where you live so different species will rid them differently in California, Florida, Lowes, Canada, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, NJ, U.K, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts and so on.
You will also find that some they will naturally get rid of them just by the odor alone and or the bitter taste that they have in them when they are chewed. Here is a list of deer resistant plants and shrubs but just a few of them and even some can be used for shade or just grow them as trees.

Ticking and Fencing
These are some of the least commonly used methods but what I can just say is that the best of these is the use of fencing, there are different types of fences available that you can make yourself and will help a great deal to get rid of the deer. It also depends on the budget that you are planning to have on this and so this is completely upon you.
There is not much I can say on these but these are just ideas and you can research more on them that is if you are really interested in using them.
These methods can be used anywhere like on your car while driving outdoors on a picnic. I will not answer the question what is the best deer repellent and for this, you will have to find for yourself as this depends on very many reasons that I have mentioned earlier on this post.
I have not heard of any scam and if there is any there surely should be some sort of rebate.
I do not want to make this post very boring to read and so I am going to stop here.
