Living in a place surrounded by nature's bounty has its perks, but with deer frequently traipsing into my garden and enjoying my plants as their personal buffet, the experience was becoming increasingly frustrating. Enter the Liquid Fence Deer Repellent, which I hoped would become the invisible barrier that would stand between the deer and my carefully cultivated backyard.

The science behind the repellent is rather intriguing. By leveraging the natural aversion deer have to certain smells, especially sulfur-containing compounds, the repellent triggers a prey-response behavior. The inclusion of putrescent egg solids and garlic in the formulation seemed promising, given their notorious reputation to deter.

Applying the Liquid Fence was simple enough. I appreciated the emphasis on ensuring plants were dry before application, which was clearly stated. I must confess I was slightly impatient after the first application, frequently checking to ensure it had dried adequately. In my area, it took around 5 hours to dry completely. However, once it set, even after a rainfall or two, the effectiveness remained intact.

One concern that emerged was the potential need for winter applications, considering the deer in my area aren't fussy about the seasons. The product information was clear in addressing this. As long as the temperatures stayed above freezing and there was no snow on the ground, the Liquid Fence could be applied without hindrance.

Now, let's address the elephant in the room – the scent. The initial application does have a discernible odor. However, to my relief, once dried, the smell dissipated, at least to my human senses. The deer, on the other hand, seemed acutely aware of it and steered clear of my garden. Over time, I became less worried about the diminishing scent since the label reassured that its effectiveness against deer wouldn't wane.

Several applications later, I'm genuinely impressed. Not once have I had to consider rotating this product with any other repellents, as the deer's aversion to Liquid Fence seems consistent and unyielding.

In conclusion, the Liquid Fence Deer Repellent has proven itself as an invaluable ally in my gardening journey. For those looking for an effective deterrent against deer without having to resort to barriers or chemicals, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this product a try. Not only did it protect my garden, but it also restored my peace of mind.
