We’ve purchased a lot of deer and rabbit sprays over the years (including home made ones) and nothing has worked for more than a couple of weeks. Saw an article in our local paper about Deer Defeat and how it actually works so thought we’d give it a try. Bought a small bottle at first to see if it worked. I have to say that it does work and does not have to reapplied after rainfall. Although it smells awful, it will go away after a little while. I try to spray during the evening so I don’t chase away my neighbors—just the deer and rabbits. Now we buy the larger 32 oz ready to use container and it does last a long time because you only need to spray once.

Would love to try this to ward off all the deer, bunnies & muskrats that that feast in my gardens.
