Anyone use Deer repellents applications on trees and shrubbery? I have had several customers ask about it and I am not familiar with these products enough to give a quality response. I am researching products but any help would be nice!

Plantskydd. Best stuff I have found, sometimes can get by with 2 treatments a year.

If that don't work, Remington .270 usually does the trick.:D

Up north, how much do you pay for Plantskydd? What do you charge per app?/Tree. Any side affects for tree in high heat or other circumsatnces?

It runs about $20 for quart size or $50 for 5 quarts. Price varies depending on who you buy it from, you can also can get the powder to mix your own.

I don't offer this as a service to my customers yet as I don't have a fert., herb., & pest., license yet. But I apply this to my own shrubs, trees, plants and it works great. Doesn't wash off like most other products will, I think one of the main components is dried blood.

Here's a link to the web site.

I use invisible fence deer repellent. Has worked well for the past year and a half. Most garden centers carry it.
