Easy steps for protecting mums and pumpkins from hungry deer

  • Use an effective repellent
  • Break the foraging habit before it takes hold
  • Get the neighbors involved

Protect mums and pumpkins with Liquid Fence

Protect your outdoor fall decorations ( the tasty ones, that is) with a liberal application of proven effective, all-season Liquid Fence® Deer & Rabbit Repellent. Applied on and around mums and pumpkins, Liquid Fence works on scent, so the deer don’t even have to take a bite to be repelled – unlike many other repellents that require the deer to “munch away” to be effective.

 An ounce of prevention…

It’s much easier to prevent deer damage than it is to stop a foraging cycle that has already begun. Deer are creatures of habit. If they munched your tulips in the spring, they’ll crunch your pumpkins in the fall and, you can bet, they’ll be chomping your arborvitae in the winter! By applying Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent at the first signs of deer foraging, you’ll break their habit before it takes a strong hold.

A neighborhood effort

As in most situations, there is power in numbers. If adjacent properties practice the same deer control policies, the neighborhood will benefit. So work hard at convincing soft-hearted Mary, she’s doing the deer more harm than good by regularly feeding the local deer population. Not to mention angering her neighbors by training the deer to continually seek food in her (and, consequently their) back yard!
