Controlling deer seems to be an all-year around task particularly in areas where deer population is heavy. The winter season brings food scarcity, which means, deer are likely to visit landscapes and gardens in search for palatable food sources. Deer control is a serious issue in many localities as this not only affects economically but also could turn an otherwise beautiful garden into an ugly one.
There are many things you can do if you want to keep the deer away. Flashing lights, noises and even using your dogs to chase them only provide a temporary solution. Other practical methods such as using deer repellents products, netting and tubing the trees as well as fencing provide long term solution.
