I have used Deer Scram for 2 years & find it works the best of the many many things that I have tried. I just finished the last of my regular Deer Scram & I'm looking forward to this Professional version. The price is outstanding! I plan to put it into a plastic jug with a handle & lid, (for convenience) & sprinkle away. The deer seem to be getting less timid & more agressive. I highly recommend Deer Scram...it works!
Bought the product to protect our forever rose bushes. Made a perimeter around the 7 bushes starting approx. 25 feet away from bushes, made 3 foot wide runs with a 3 foot wide buffer in between (3each, 3 foot wide Deer Scram runs in each buffer) also product was spread around each plant. Used approx. 70% of the Deer Scram for the above. It was not successfull in repelling the deer.
I live in Alamo, California and I have a large yard with lots of fruit trees and a small vineyard. I bought some Deer Scram last year that seemed to work. Then earlier this year, a mother deer gave birth to four baby deers in my next-door neighbor's yard, and they really make this place their home. The baby deers grew more voracious every day, so I bought this big jar of Deer Scram to protect my young fruit trees. But the deers keep devouring everything that I planted. I think a strong fence is the only sure defense against deers. You are only trying your luck with non-fence methods such as smell (I have also tried other deer repellants that smells so bad that repels human but does nothing to deers. In this regard, Deer Scram is still one of the best out there), taste, or sound, and use only when a fence is not possible. Good luck!
Deer Scram is by far the best product that works to deter them from damaging your yard. I tested with and without this product. The difference with deer scram is that it steers them to other places. Deer become uninterested in my plants and are growing nicely.
Deer Scram is an organic product made up of organic material. Being that this is an orgainc product it is safe for children to be around. Also, this product has an odor that poses unattractive to children
We have 98 small trees that the deer rut on. We ordered Deer Scram and want to use it to keep them away but do not know how to use. What do I put it in to spread? How wide a swath do I need? How far from the trees do I spread it?
For the first application, use Deer Scram aggressively. You will use 18 inches from a bed or drip line of a tree. You will apply an 18-20 inch perimeter barrier strip around groups, plots, beds, rows of trees, etc. every 30 days.
Deer Scram comes with a scoop that you will use to speak the product. You will need to reapply after every heavy rainfall. Deer Scram lasts for up to 90 days in winter and works will under snow. If the snow crusts, break up and re-apply the product.
