Deer Control — Keeping Deer Away From Your Plants & Trees Naturally

We get a lot of calls from homeowners about deer control in Westchester, and for good reason.

How to keep deer from eating plants and trees is the big question.

When deer browse on your property, they can devastate your trees and shrubs, eating everything down to nubs and causing thousands in landscape damage.

You can relate if you have any White Pine or White Cedars (Arbor Vitae) on your property.

Deer love to eat the pine needles on these trees; you can see evidence of this all over Westchester, NY.

We Use a Natural Deer Repellant

If your property isn’t deer-proofed with fencing, then your next best option is deer repellent. We use different topical applications (egg whites, cinnamon, peppers, tabasco) that affect taste and smell, so deer will be less apt to eat your trees and plants.

We mix up the repellants from month to month to ensure that deer don’t become conditioned to one repellent. Our experience has shown this method to give the best results.

Frequency of application is dependent on rain. The more rain we have, the more often the application needs to be applied. We’ve had great results from some of these natural deer repellants, which are included in our landscape maintenance contracts.

Deer Fencing is Very Effective

If you really want to keep deer away from your plants and trees, installing some good-quality deer fencing is the permanent solution.

Metal fencing will last the longest. We use is a welded wire mesh that’s coated with black vinyl. It’s the best option because of its strength and longevity.

The plastic deer fencing you see all over is an ABS plastic that will degrade over the years and eventually be penetrated by deer. Fencing posts installed by us will either be metal or wood. Wood posts can be made from cedar, pressure-treated wood, or even bark cover tree posts.
