How can animals be deterred?Suggestions for garden plots to deter animals (approved by the City of Red Deer) include: - Planting chives, onions, pungent smelling herbs (mint, hyssop, etc) and flowers that are unappealing to deer around the outside or your beds. Often these plants help to deter other invertebrate pests as well. - Using homemade repellents that include garlic and other organic, garden safe pungents (nothing poisonous or harmful in any way to wildlife or humans) - Put flashy items on sticks and posts in your bed to scare off wildlife - Use wire mesh such as chicken wire around the inside of your garden bed A fence around the garden will not be built.
