Deer Repellent Recipes


Directions:

6 eggs
4 hot peppers or enough to make it VERY HOT!
6-12 gloves of garlic, enough to make it stink.
5 cups warm water.
Put it all in a blender and liquify it. Put it in an old milk jug. Set it out in the sun to let it cook and get real stinky and hot for a couple days. Strain it well if you want to use it in a sprayer. You can pour it on and around the plants out of the jug.

Directions:

This will not hurt the deer. The deer will shy away from the scent of other animals, so you trick them with the bloodmeal and hair clippings. Your barber is a good source for some hair sweepings.
1 yard old sheeting, cotton, or muslin
1/4 C. bloodmeal
1 C. hair clippings
Cut the fabric into small 4-inch squares. Mix the bloodmeal and hair together and place about a tablespoon onto the center of each square. Bring up the ends and secure with a string or rubber band.
To use, hang these little packets from the branches of the trees and shrubs where deer are a problem. You should be able to notice deer avoiding the spot almost immediately.
