I think I got a deer family hanging out in the yard. Not only did I find "unmeantiobables" left as a present, I discovered bit apples in the apple tree, missing in action roses, missing in action strawberries, and some flowers on the tomatoe plants keep disappearing. My grandmother, who has alheimers, said she saw two deer the other day, and I know a couple weeks ago I saw a doe. Hmm they are so pretty to watch, but can be such a garden pest. Ideas anyone?

If you don't want them in your yard eating your flowers and stuff, take some human hair or dog hair and put it in a walmart bag and tie it about their height. They will smell the human and dog scent and wont like it. Plus the rattling of the bag if it is windy will spook them and they will leave. Sometimes wind chimes keep them away too. They don't like the noise.

I love watching them too. I use to feed the birds and would get all kinds of animals coming in. I even had a family of foxes. They were so cool to watch. I shot video of them but lost the vcr tape.

Here's wishing you a good day.

Hugs, Karen

I wish I would've known about the human and dog hair in the bag when we were living in the country.  We had alot of deer that would come through our yard.  I love to watch them but hubby is a big deer hunter so I use to try to shew them away when I would see them.  Although he never shot one that was in our yard.  Wish I had some ideas for you........

Part of me wishes we could have deer in our back yard but here they are classed as a pest and do not have a long life span.
My DS and DIL have kangaroos in their back yard and they hate it. They kive in the outskirts of a city and they eat every thing.
Nothing will keep them out they have a small dog which they let run in their back yard. They are going to have to put a 6 foot fence up to stop them.

Here are a few things that work.

1. bar soap in stockings hung from tree limb (irish spring works good)
2. tie a white shopping bag on a stake at corners of your garden (or anywear)
3.marigolds planted in with other plants works for alot of animals and keeps some bugs away

We get all kinds of animals looking for a good meal here, lol.
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you won't.
I may not do things like other people, but I get things done in my own way, in my own time.
