Buyer's Guide: Deer Resistant Plants

How To Find The Best Deer Resistant Plants For Your Yard

Many people think that deer resistant plants are all the rage, but I can assure you that they are not. People buy these supposedly deer resistant plants and plant them throughout their property. They sit there and hope that the deer will eat them, or at least not come near them. The problem with this is that it just doesn't work.

Let me explain. These deer resistant plants are bought in the hopes that if they are planted around the deer, they will somehow stop the deer from eating them. The deer are a much smarter and stronger species than us humans. They know that when you threaten them, they will go away. They don't care whether they have to run two miles into a field to get to the food that is sitting right next to them. So deer simply don't care about whether the plant is resistant to deer activity.

If you plant deer resistant plants around your deer stand, they will simply move on. You will have to do special digging to access their food. This means you will have to move your entire stand to access the food. It doesn't make sense to do this, because you could very well kill your deer.

There is no need to do this. There are other methods for dealing with deer problems. One method is to shoot the deer. I would recommend never taking a shot at the deer unless you are absolutely 100% sure you know what you are doing. I would only take such action when there are a large number of deer around. And again, unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing, I would recommend not taking a shot at any deer resistant plants.

The other method I am talking about is to use deer repellents. This can work, but not always. Some deer will become immune to such products. The key to finding deer resistant plants is to keep researching. Keep reading articles, talking to experts, and always looking for new ideas.

If you follow this method of deer control, it might work. Just remember though, that deer will not respect plants that cannot move. They will eat anything. Try to plan out your next step of action. Make sure you cover as much ground as possible.

You will also need to get more than just one type of deer resistant plants. In fact, if you are taking all of the right steps, it might not even matter whether or not you have more than one type of deer resistant plants. They will all help to protect the deer.

One of the best places to start your research is on the Internet. There are some really great ideas here. You can also find out some great information about getting the right types of deer resistant plants. Find out what works and make sure you follow these tips for deer protection.

The deer are not the only animals that can find problem areas. Other animals and insects are going to find those areas as well. You might have to look in a few different places to find the right deer resistant plants.

You should also consider where you are planting. If you have a stream or a pond or a lake behind your home, it might be an idea to plant some of these plants there. Not only will they keep the deer away from them, but they can also help to filter out the pollutants in the water that the deer have to drink.

If you do not have a large area to plant, you can still plant the deer repellents in different areas of the yard. Make sure that they are fairly small. You do not want a very big area where these plants will cover the ground too deeply. You just want to make sure that the area is enough to repel the deer without them overrunning the area and trampling all of the plants. Overpopulation is what will kill most of the plants in any area.

When you are looking for deer resistant plants, remember that they are not all created equal. Some deer repellents may work for one species of deer, but not another. Also, some of the deer resistant plants can harm other animals in the area. You should find a product that is made for your type of environment and that does not harm the environment in any way. With this knowledge, you will be ready to protect the deer that are a part of your property.
