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 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.

to protect your valuable flowers, shrubs, and
trees from foraging deer?
Learn 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 prefer
to eat browse – leaves, twigs and various shoots
and vines -- and “green types” of foliage. However,
frequently feed on flowers, fruits and
vegetables and the buds and twigs of fruit trees
and ornamental shrubs.
Identify the damage.
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. 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.
