ADDITIONAL ALTERNATIVES

  • FORAGE REDUCTION - CLEAR FOLIAGE AND VEGETATION FROM ROADSIDES AND REPLACE WITH GRAVEL
  • USE OF LOW-COST BARRIERS - PLACE A ROPE OR SOME TYPE OF CABLE AROUND FLOWER BEDS/GARDENS. WHEN DEER HIT A BARRIER AT CHEST LEVEL, IT SCARES THEM INTO RETREATING.
  • INTEGRATED APPROACH - A COMBINATION OF BARRIERS, DETERRENTS AND/OR REPELLENTS. DEER ARE INTELLIGENT AND ADAPTIVE.  BE CERTAIN TO ROTATE METHODS.
