    I have a plant holding area that the deer are eating up. I have thought about an electric fence.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for repelling deer.

    They are also eating my plants at home also!

    My neighbors have an electric fence( just a single strand) with these things that attract the deer and when they stick there noses in they get shocked. They say it works great and the have several thousand dollars worth of roses.

    PS they have tried every other product and gimice and none worked so save urself the frustration and money and do it right the first time.

    12' fence.

    Even an electric fence will be figured out soon enough. R. they can jump!

    Otherwise, they were there first. Enjoy them while you feed them.

    If there is a Lesco near your place of business they sell a very good product for Deer Repellant but it smells very bad and you will have to apply it every 7 to 10 days.

    Its basicly like a metal cup thats tied into the fence and it has cotton in it that is soaked in attractent...deer sticks nose in to sniff and zap

    They have had for a few years and the deer stay away...the figured everything else out but not this
