I read part of this article in the drugstore yesterday:
They know how to catch your attention! It starts with:
I guess if they are few enough and small enough, a shovel works OK?
The only thing that actually worked was a stout fence, supplemented later by a dog. I loathed the idea of a fence, but my choices finally became: continually lose my food supply or build a fence.
This is unusual.... how does it work? How many of these do you need to be effective? Does the red or orange have any special significance.... would - say - a white cloth... not work?
Well I know this has worked for me. We have a bad deer problem here! Even throw we can kill a deer aday! But in the area Im in is top of a Mt and It hunted good!
I found this to work all year round!
Fine some Old Red or Orange Cloths and Put Gun Oil on them. with Human Hair. Hang then near your plants! I change them out about 1 once a year. They advoid the area now! I had to set up 3 of them to keep them away. But works good.
