    Homemade Deer Repellant-

    Works on my goats so it should work on deer.
    I collect all these items form the garden/ farm any additions or suggestions to perfecting the recipe would be welcomed. i find it repels if there is no heavy rain for about three weeks.

    -Garlic- one of two coves processed or pressed through the garlic press-
    -old or extra eggs- beaten
    -mint a few leaves ground or processed
    -zanthum gum optional- preservative
    -water optional
    I process all the ingredients in a bender and let the eggs rot a bit. This stuff skinks but it works.
    I also will strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or a strainer if i plan on putting the liquid in a spray bottle.

    In the summertime, I use blood meal.
    Works like a charm for me. It is pricey,
    but it sure helps my garden plants too!

    the best thing I've found to keep wild critters out of the garden is human hair. Once every couple of weeks I go by the local barbers and get a plastic bag full. I have an unlimited supply of small cloth bags that I fill and place in several places in the garden. regardless of wind direction, they get a whiff and scatter like broken glass. It has never failed.

    Dog hair works too, even more so when it is still attached to the dog.
