    New member, first post.

    I just read about someone having deer eating garden vegetables. I would like to offer a sure fire cure. I have tried everything including playing a radio in the garden, human hair from the barber shop scattered around the plants they like, dog hair from the groomers, every commercial product that I could find, even a 4 foot fence. I believe our local deer will not bother with anything else as long as okra is present. Believe me deer like okra almost as much as southerners do.

    I don’t remember where I learned of this trick but it works and has worked for everyone that has tried it. It is very simple, is not poison and every one has the ingredients. So, without further ado: crack two eggs into the blender with some water and blend them well. pour the mixture into a two gallon sprayer, and finish filling with water. you do not have to let the mixture “go bad”. spray it as soon as it is mixed. You might have to spray again in a couple of weeks or after a rain.

    As soon as I see the sign of deer in the garden I spray and that is the end of the problem. I have a friend who has a small muscadine and scuppernong vineyard. He was hanging bars of Lava soap among his vines and said he thought it helped. The egg solution ended the problem. I hope everyone with the “deer in the garden” problem will try this.

    I’ve used bars of Irish Spring. I sure wouldn’t want to WASH with that stinky stuff.

    I wonder if that will work for squirrels?

    I use to assassinate gophers in the back of the head with a 22LR rifle as they came up out of their holes. That was when I was a kid and life was simpler.
