    Okay guys,
    I know nothing about Sarr's. Here it goes; A friend who not really collects CP's just whatever's hardy in his area and he has some Sarr's and the deer will not leave them alone. So, he asked me but I haven't a clue. What should I tell him? He also has some Sundews that get eatin as well. How do you make them stop? I don't have deer in my area so I've never had deer eat anything, so I really have no idea.

    Thanks
    Joe

    well, you could take a few courses here. Move the plants, if he can, use a bb gun to discourage them, or if strike one and two doesn't work, use what I do when they use up their three strikes in my garden, a good old 100 gr .243 slug...good eating all around.

    I think there's something called a deer scare that you can build out of bamboo and wood. You hook it up like a fountain and it makes a loud knocking sound that will keep the critters at bay. I'm not sure about the specifics, though, but it shouldn't be too hard to find info.

    a radio helps keep them at bay, a motion dector triggered impact sprinkler has worked, Liquid Fence, (a nasty smelling concoction) a 12' high der fence around the entire property or a GUN.

    good luck

    And how would you go about collecting that?

    Cynic,
    after a few days the deer realise it means no harm, just like sparrows learn those fake owls wont do anything to them after a week. the banging sound would also be annoying to neighbors, and they might complain

    You could try dog urine. They're a close relative to wolves, and it's been proven that deer will react to stimuli of a non-existant predator. They put up reflective circles near highways in england to keep deer off of the roads. When headlights hit them it looks like a wolf's eyes and the deer run for cover even though there haven't been any wolves in England for about 400 years.

    Here is what I have done. I built a light frame around all my plants. It is strurdy, but not heavy, so it can be moved around if I want to. I have covered the frame with good old fashioned bird netting stretched tight, and have not had a single problem with the deer, racoons, oppossums, squirrels or anything else. I even watched a full grown hawk swoop down to get a look see at what it saw as a possible watering hole, hit the netting and bounce back 10 feet, none the worse for wear, and unsure of what just happened to him. Hawks are not light weight critters, and to see that with my own eyes, made me realise that this was the best method I have come up with yet to protect my plants. Anyone growing outdoors can use this method, and the only thing you have to worry about is your own ability to construct the frame. Good luck, and leave the deer alone if you really don't have to kill it.
