The deer issue continues in Avon Lake and one owner has found his own way to deal with it. Much to my dismay my neighbor has found a deer repellent that smells like the dirtiest worst smelling dog you can imagine! He waits until we have company over to use this stuff. We will have a few guests over and will be enjoying our backyard. Right when our dinner is about to be served our wonderful new neighbor sneaks around his yard spraying this disgusting deer repellent around. The next thing we know our guests are covering their noses and we have to go into the house or gag.
We don't have loud parties or lots of people over, never more than 10 and it is usually family. We are beginning to think this is being done to us on purpose!
We have a family of deer that lives in the woods behind us. We enjoy watching them and they never bother us. We are PRO deer on the deer issue.
This stuff seems irritating and toxic and makes it hard to breathe. Is deer repellent even legal in a suburban setting?
I would like to hear from the Patch readers how they would approach this awkward situation?
