Deer Damage Persists In Winter
Posted by Jennifer Smith on 6th Jan 2020
When we think of winter, we think about bare trees; lack of natural resources and dried out vegetable gardens; however, just because food is not growing as much in winter as in spring doesn't mean deer damage won't be a concern.
In Fall,deer noticed that natural resources were dwindling; but now that winter is here, whitetails are desperate to eat. They will continue to eat tree bark; leaves and any plants from gardens. To protect winter crops, gardeners should continue re-routing deer movement with deer fencing. Deer fence installation is easy and will help homeowners see a decline in deer populations on landscapes throughout the year. Remember, deer damage occurs most frequently in spring and summer; so, deer fence should be installed in winter to help block future agriculture damage attempts from white-tailed deer.
Best height deer fence: 7.5-8' feet.
