Solving Deer Problems: How to Keep Them Out of Your Garden, Guaranteed (Solving Problems)

Solving Deer Problems: How to Keep Them Out of Your Garden, Guaranteed (Solving Problems) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fear the deer! Nature has never invented a more efficient killing machine, at least from the point of view of most garden plants. Able to leap an eight-foot fence, sneak silently through the suburbs at night, and outrun a greyhound (not to mention a beagle or Labrador retriever), the deer is the number one enemy not only of the gardener but of anyone who wants to relax in the backyard without catching Lyme disease from deer ticks or drive safely down a highway without fear of collision.

Solving Deer Problems is an invaluable manual that covers: How to build a fence that will deter and withstand a deer onslaught; the use of chemical weapons such as bottled deer repellent; how to choose plants deer will avoid (and also those that attract them); how to avoid deer on the road.

Peter Loewer also discusses why deer seem to be overrunning our suburban communities, and what can be done on the local level.

Synopsis:

The best, foolproof ways to prevent deer from ruining your gardens and shrubs.
