Using Mylar Ribbons as a Deer Deterrent

May 15, 2012

Mylar BalloonA couple of years ago, I had been away from home for a few days to find my garden had been nibbled on. I found out that it was indeed deer that had helped themselves. So, I looked high and low for a solution that would not hurt them and maintain my goal to retain my organic gardening. Well, I found an article that said using Mylar ribbons (the pretty shiny ones will keep them away, placed in numerous areas of the garden. Well I had a half dozen rolls of this, so why not try it.

I tied 2 foot long pieces on sticks, on supporting stakes and on the plants themselves. Guess what, I never had another problem, ever! I have reused them ever since.
