5 DIY Deer Repellent Recipes

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

Deer are beautiful and graceful creatures, but if they get into your garden, they could destroy all of your hard work. That’s why Deerbusters carries an array of deer repellents and deer sprays for the average gardener to manage risk in the garden.

We know gardeners like to do things themselves; so, we’ve come up with a few DIY all natural repellent recipes for deer management. Most of these deer repellent recipes contain all natural goods such as eggs, garlic, and/or pepper, since deer have been known to not like those smells.

Recipe #1:

3 Tablespoons hot sauce

3 raw eggs

3 Tablespoons of minced garlic

Blend all ingredients together in a blender and add a little bit of water to lessen the thickness. Then, add the mixture to 1 gallon of water and spray around your plants.

Recipe #2:

4 Tablespoons of ground cayenne pepper

1 cup white vinegar

2 cups water

1 cup clear ammonia

3 heads of garlic, peeled

1 cup oil soap

Mix together the cayenne pepper and white vinegar; bring to a boil. Boil for one minute, then strain the mixture through a coffee filter. Blend together garlic and water, then strain the mixture through a second coffee filter. Combine both strained mixtures, ammonia, and oil soap, and add the liquid to 2 1/2 gallons of water. Spray around your plants.

Recipe #3:

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 Tablespoon of dish soap

1 Tablespoon of cooking oil
