For those of you looking to keep deer away from your flowers, veggies, and shrubbery, he’s a solution from a reader of a ContraCostaTimes.com blog:
“A friend in Vancouver says he has good luck keeping deer (and bunny rabbits) away from his plants by spraying them first with "Pam" cooking spray and then sprinkling them with cayenne pepper.”
Of course this can work in theory. No animal wants to be sprayed with Pam and sprinkled with pepper. But the application seems too tricky.
