5 DIY Deer Repellent Recipes

DIY repellent

 

Deer are beautiful and graceful creatures, but if they get into your garden, they could destroy all of your hard work. That’s why our deer fence company carries an array of deer repellents.

We know gardeners like to do things themselves, however, so we’ve come up with a few DIY deer repellent recipes. Most of these recipes feature eggs, garlic, and/or pepper, since deer have been known to not like those smells.

 

 

Recipe #1:

3 Tablespoons hot sauce

3 raw eggs

3 Tablespoons of minced garlic

Blend all ingredients together in a blender and add a little bit of water to lessen the thickness. Then, add the mixture to 1 gallon of water and spray on your plants.

 

Recipe #2:

4 Tablespoons of ground cayenne pepper

1 cup white vinegar

2 cups water

1 cup clear ammonia

3 heads of garlic, peeled

1 cup oil soap

Mix together the cayenne pepper and white vinegar; bring to a boil. Boil for one minute, then strain the mixture through a coffee filter. Blend together garlic and water, then strain the mixture through a second coffee filter. Combine both strained mixtures, ammonia, and oil soap, and add the liquid to 2 1/2 gallons of water. Spray on your plants.

 

Recipe #3:

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 Tablespoon of dish soap

1 Tablespoon of cooking oil

Blend all ingredients together, then add to 1 gallon of water and spray on your plants.

1 cup sour cream

1/4 teaspoon liquid dish soap

2 eggs, beaten
