Deer and Rabbits - Hair to Keep the Hare in Control

deer-and-rabbits-hair-to-keep-the-hare-in-control

If rabbits or deer could talk, they would complain that it seems like the humans never leave the garden. It sure smells like someone is here.

The screaming goat thing, is a real thing with rabbits and deer. I remember once catching a small, wild rabbit and it did make a screaming sound when I grabbed it. I must have been very quick, and sneaky.

Well, this page is not about screaming animals, nor is it about keeping animals around. Nope. This page is about a bag of hair that works to keep deer away from my garden.

The same bags that you get treats in at wedding receptions, house the same hair you find at beauty salons.

You get the sweepings from multiple people. You place it in the bag. Close the bag securely with a knot.

Then dip it in water like a tea bag. Immerse it. Then, place it around a suitable tall stick and poke it into the dirt in your garden.

All set, to repel deer. Although, if you have a dog like mine, you may have to tell him to leave it alone. This is not a dog toy!
