To keep deer from eating on trees or bushes in the winter, hang a half bar of Zest soap in a net bag tied on a branch. The deer will stay away.

Put those little pieces of soap in the bottom of cut off panty hose. Tie them around in different places in your garden to keep deer away. Ivory and Irish Spring seem to work best.

Oh, if this really works, this could be the solution I'm looking for. Our gardern tends to be nothing but a free salad bar/buffet for deer. We try making a garden ever so often, but usually before any thing gets ripe or fully grown, the deer have already wiped it out. Thanks for the tip! (05/28/2008)
