Thread: Home-Remedy Deer Browse Repellent Research at CAES

    Default Home-Remedy Deer Browse Repellent Research at CAES

    The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station is continuing its research into the effectiveness of repellents to prohibit deer browsing on agricultural crops and homeowners’ landscape plantings and gardens in Connecticut.

    Do you have a home-brewed deer repellent you think works well?

    We are soliciting unique, effective “home remedy” deer repellents to evaluate alongside commercially available repellents. If your home remedy is selected and you are willing to assist us, we will recreate your home made deer repellent solution and treat test plants in our research plots. We then will evaluate and rate the effectiveness of each of the treatments.

    Please follow this link to a solicitation survey form. HomeBrewedDeerRepellents
    (Or COPY & PASTE this url to your browse).

    Please fill out the survey as completely as possible, make sure to describe the remedy you use in full detail.

    Please feel free to e-mail me with any comments or questions.

    After 40 years of gardening I can say that the only "near perfect" deer detterent is good fence, and a good dog
    Nothing will stop foraging deer that find your yard/garden attractive...
    can't blame them...
