Stop Deer Browsing
Before It Begins
Tulips rise. Azaleas blossom. Camellias bloom.
Roses sprout. Arborvitae glows. Clematis climbs.
Grapevines cling. Daylilies blaze. Violets rage.
Yes, deer destroy!
Springtime splendor rushes through gardens and
landscapes nationwide as a blustery March gives
way to April showers that bring May flowers! North
American homeowners, landscapers and farmers
anticipate spring and summer gardens overflowing
in colors, textures and produce close to their
gardener’s heart. But all too often their passions
are quickly dashed as the deer’s seemingly
insatiable appetite perennially destroy these and
many other valuable plants, shrubs and trees. The
promise of blooms aplenty during the next several
months -- and beyond -- will be dashed by foraging
deer unless you take action now!
matters little where you live. Deer are plentiful
across North America. Few are immune to the
damaging effects of browsing deer. Regionally
divided by their natural range, three species –
whitetails, blacktails and mule deer – roam at
will across city parks, suburban neighborhoods and
rural communities where they have no fear! Natural
predators are few, and hunting seasons are months
most cases, suburban homeowners are no threat to
deer. Park officers on patrol by car or horseback
pose no danger. Deer often won’t run unless
chased! They learn the limits of controlled dogs,
and they even learn the noises associated with
those who feed deer. Preventing damage by foraging
deer is easier than breaking the pattern of deer
foraging after it starts.
But woodland mast crops are abundant
in springtime, you say. Yes and no. Favored
natural foods, such as acorns, sumac peas,
beechnuts and locust pods won’t ripen and fall to
the ground until September and later. Wild berries
won’t sweeten until June at best. Savory shoots
and soft grasses are springing up, but as these
deer will often turn their nose and mouths away.

Once deer adapt to your garden, one

Perhaps no deer
barrier is more effective than a fence. But deer
can easily clear fences as high as 6 feet. That’s
an expensive fence, no matter the material it’s
made of, and the length of the barrier compounds
the cost of building that fence. Imagine building
a fence 6 feet high to encompass a yard 2 acres or
more in size! But don’t be hoodwinked into buying
mechanical devices. Remember the dog noted above?
Don’t get duped by spray-on taste teasers. The
only thing deer have to fear is "fear itself!"
is your best deer repellent
because it attacks a deer’s sense of safety.
Blended from selected organic components, Deer
Scram will keep deer off your plantings because,
through their uncanny sense of smell, Deer Scram
convinces deer that harm is nearby. Deer Scram
will change deer behavior. As they near the
applied barrier of Deer Scram, deer actually alert
to a sense of danger – even death! Its unique
blend of all-natural organic ingredients targets a deer’s
remarkable sense of smell. As the scent of death
reaches the deer, a genetic biological defense
mechanism to flee from predators is triggered.
Watch deer flee from the area or avoid it
completely! The association of the fear of death
with Deer Scram will lead to a profound learning
experience for the deer and, with proper
re-application of Deer Scram, the deer will not
return to the area.
So, how do you begin a spring-season plan
to protect your valuable flowers, shrubs, and
trees from foraging deer? Initiate your plan now,
before your yard and garden beauties show
themselves, using the strength of a deterrent
program that stops deer from entering your
flowerbeds, gardens and even your yard!
where deer eat.
Deer prefer to feed in open areas near cover.
Clear-cuts, parks and suburban neighborhoods are
the perfect habitat, where rich
mixtures of vegetation produce abundant food and
cover. They’re easily attracted to areas of open
lawns, succulent summer gardens and plentiful
ornamental shrubs where patches of forest cover
stand nearby. Deer opt for variety
over quantity, and they prefer a variety of
tender new shoots and lush foliage, which they
find in abundance during the warm months in
landscaped yards and gardens.
The type of eater a deer is depends on the
deer's geographic location, changes in climate
and genetics, but deer will eat just about any
type of foliage. They prefer to eat browse –
leaves, twigs and various shoots and vines --
and “green types” of foliage. Deer
frequently feed on flowers, fruits and
vegetables and the buds and twigs of fruit trees
and ornamental shrubs.
Identify the damage.
Damage to landscape plantings and ornamentals
may occur at any time of year, but it’s most
disheartening when young and revitalized plants
are trying to grow and establish themselves. You
can distinguish the damage caused to plants by
feeding deer by the
ragged, broken ends of branches of plants and
trees that have been browsed by deer, which do
not have incisor teeth. Rabbits and rodents have
incisors and leave clean-cut surfaces where they
have nibbled upon plants. The height (up to 6
feet) the damage is found off the ground is
another indication that rules our small mammals.
Assault their sense of security. While
deer are herd animals, bucks are rarely seen
with does except during the “rut” – the annual
breeding season, which generally occurs in the
fall but varies by geographical location and
herd genetics. Does, fawns and yearlings,
however, are very social, congregational, even
predictable animals. Fawns are dependent and
learn from the does, including how to use their
remarkable sense of smell for locating food and
survival. In just a few months, does will give
birth to fawns and their nose will lead them to
return over and over again to areas where food
is tasty, abundant and safe to forage. Their
nose will also alert deer to nearby danger.
Disrupt their sense of security and you’ve
achieved the primary factor for turning deer
away from your valuable plants, gardens, shrubs
and trees. Deer have good memories and learn
from each other. When one deer is afraid to
return to an area, other deer – including fawns
– also will be reluctant to enter the area.
