Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

Get Rid of Deer

By DoMyOwn staff

Why get rid of deer?

Deer are most often beautiful, non-threatening, peaceful animals. While this is true, deer can also become a pest in certain environments. Deer that eat their way through a homeowner's garden or landscape can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time. This damage is both costly and unsightly.

Visual and Audible scare devices are not the most effective for deer control.

In most cases it is either too expensive or just plain impossible to exclude deer from your property. Deer are able to jump or find their way around fences. Plants that are supposed to be deer resistant are only resistant to some deer while seeming to be very appetizing to others. Deterrent devices such as "visual scare" and "audible scare" devices usually only work when they are used together and if they are varied often-which can be very time consuming.

Get rid of deer and limit property damage with Deer Off Repellent.

A great option to keep deer from nibbling on your garden or landscape is a "scent" or "taste" deterrent. A scent deterrent repels deer from your plants by smell, and a taste deterrent requires that an animal actually bite or lick a surface to be deterred. Deer Off  is a new product that includes both taste and scent deterrents in its unique formulation.

How does Deer Off Repellent work?

Deer Off contains putrescent eggs solids (0.78%), garlic and capsaicin. This safe, effective product is designed to taste and smell awful to sensitive animals like deer.  By using Deer Off you can help reduce or stop damage from hungry and curious deer. Animals that come in contact with this product will soon realize that your property is off limits to them. When used as directed, Deer Off will last about 90 days before it is time to reapply. This strong formulation will also work to repel other garden destroying pests such as rabbits and squirrels.

How to use Deer Off Repellent:

Deer Off should be sprayed using a hand pump sprayer on leaves, stems and branches of vulnerable plants thoroughly and from all angles, until run-off or leaves look wet. Treat susceptible plants at the beginning of each damage season. Application should be repeated every 3 months or if the effects seem to be lessening (this usually occurs with periods of increased rainfall). After application dries it will leave a mild human detectable odor that would not be considered strong.
