OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I hate deer! I hate them with a burning white hot fiery inferno of liquid lava-boiling anger!

YEAH, the nasty critters ate their winter through my trees and flower gardens again this year!!

They ate my baby Weeping Willow tree down to a stub. I nurtured that thing for TWO years, and it’s gone. 🙁 They’ve eaten my Rose of Sharon, my hostas, my baby Redbuds… they also ate through some of my brand-new spirea shrubs, and I also just found out that they’ve been imbibing on my beloved grapevine!! Look at this!!!!!

Deer Ate My Vine

I don’t know what to do, I really don’t. I’ve tried leaving hair from the kids’ haircuts; bars of soap, cat litter, dried blood…. nothing has worked and THEY EAT EVERYTHING!


Besides maintaining a standing army with rifles, I don’t know what to do. Maybe I could get some motion detector lights that will shine bright lights when they sense motion? No, I’d need electric wiring for that. I think I may have to go high-tech with some deer fencing or deer repellant. Has anyone has any success with this?

Buy.com is having a great sale on the stuff right now. Buy.com is my new favorite store right now. I can’t believe all the stuff they have. It’s great, because they allow other, smaller stores to sell stuff, too, which increases the inventory and really makes it convenient to shop. I got hooked on them after seeing their Weekly Sale page online. The home and outdoor selection is great! I spotted this owl (no pun intended), too. I’ve been wanting to get one, to scare off the mice and the crows. My neighbors all have these owls on their fence posts; and so the critters have taken up residence at MY place because MY gardens seem to be the safe place for the drive-thru!

Check out Buy.com for loads of stuff– everyday living stuff, housewares, patio and outdoor stuff, summer apparel, loads and loads more! And don’t forget to bookmark the Weekly Sale page. If ONLY they came with deer-removal services, they’d be perfect! The repellant will have to do…

    I don’t have the deer problem, I have rabbits. They eat all my flowering plants down to the ground. I recently bought a gallon of pellets that are organic and contain the scent of fox that is supposed to repel the rabbits. I’m not sure just yet if it’s working, but I don’t know what else to do.

    We live in the country, so having my husband “mark” the area works well for us. I have heard good reports about the commercially available deer repellents; just be sure to stand up-wind when applying. A friend accidentally got a whiff of it and gagged all day! I have also heard about a motion detector water sprinkler that works well. Good luck.

      Oh, Lynne.. we have rabbits, too. 🙁 And crows. GAH! Is there no end?!? Let me know if that fox-scent stuff works, would you?

      Julie- I’ll keep your advice in mind. About the deer repellant that is, haha!

    Wooo! I like deer meat! Is legal to shoot deer for food near you? I’m a DIY follower myself. I hope to be here more often.

    Come on over & reply on my blog.

    P/s: Your blog looks really welcoming.
