Deer Repellent Sprays

 

Home Made sprays that some local gardeners swear by

DEER REPELLENT SPRAY #1

Place ingredients in a gallon jug with a screw top:

 - one half cup milk
 - one tablespoon vegetable oil
 - 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap
 - 3 cloves of garlic, peeled

Fill the jug up with water, replace lid and let sit for 2 days before using.

Mix well and use a sprayer to spray your plants every evening. When you havenít had any deer visitations for several days, you can spray every 2-3 days.
DEER REPELLENT SPRAY #2

In a large bowl or jar, gently blend the following together:

 - 1 tablespoon baking powder
 - 1 egg yolk
 - 1 liter water

Put in a sprayer. Spray all plants every 2-3 weeks, regardless of rainfall.
