    That is the worst thing to do. you will actually encourgae more deere to come. besides it is completely illegal in many states. Most of us just deal with it and use temporary fences around our plants durring the winter when food is hard to find

    My grandma once used hair clippings. She went to a barber shop and got old hair clippings and spread them around her plants. She heard it from someone and it actually worked well. Eventually they stopped coming.
