How can I keep Rabbits and Deer from eating my vegetable garden?

Have you tried rabbit fencing? It really does work.

And, is available at most hardware stores. Deer, on the other hand, are harder to keep out of the garden and off the property. If you are thinking about fencing your garden, go with one that is 8-10’ tall. There are also liquid repellents you can buy. Just remember to reapply after each rain. At garden shows and online, I have seen electronic deer repellents but haven’t tried one to see if they really work. Keep Wildlife in the Wild -Coexisting with Deer has information on different repellents including a recipe to make your own. I hope these ideas help.

Thanks for writing!
