Deer Fencing

A while back there was a show on deer fencing around arborvitae. We have a similar problem with deer eating our arborvitae in the winter. An added difficulty is that in Syracuse we can have as much as 3 feet of snow on the ground, elevating the deer.

What was the deer fencing product used in the show?

Re: Deer Fencing

Deer fencing can be very expensive to install because of the height needed. Deer can jump over six feet so with snow fall you would need a nine foot fence or more - very expensive. I got an entire seminar on this when I was a member of the OFGS and the IDFTA. There are commercial spray alternatives or a homemade one is to spray a solution of hot pepper sauce and water on the shrubs on a periodic basis.
