There are 3-4 deers that comes on my property all the time. They eat the flowers and the baby deer even plays on the pool cover (when it was covered up before summer). I tried various sprays but nothing seems to work. I just recently planted some beautiful flowers and the deers are eating them :sad: Can someone recommend some effective deer repellents please? I don't mind them being on the property but just don't want them to eat my plants and damage the pool cover.

Growing up my mom always used something that was made from another animal's urine... I can't remember which animal, coyote maybe? I don't think it was the actual urine but something made to simulate it. Always worked.

My IL's used a mixture of milk and eggs to spray on their roses and it seemed to work. I don't have deer but something is eating my roses and I can't figure out if it's a raccoon, squirrels opossums or all 3! I have a spray I bought at lowes but it only works some of the time.

Thank you everyone for your help and recommendations. I purchased some Liquid Fence. It smells absolutely horrid but hopefully it will work.

@trlgirl I hope you figure out what's eating your roses and stop them!
