Deer Repellent

Bobbex is the Most Effective Deer & Rabbit Repellant on the Market!

All natural, safe and proven effective, Bobbex products come in a variety of ready-to-use and concentrate sizes to deter deer and rabbits from damaging your landscape. This topical foliar spray prevents damage to all trees, shrubs and ornamentals caused by deer bedding down, rubbing and foraging.

The active ingredients in Bobbex are a series of proteins making the product extremely safe for use on the most sensitive plantings and are harmless to all wildlife including humans, pets, birds and aquatic life. Bobbex is environmentally friendly, using only natural ingredients that will not wash off.

Plants to watch are, Cedar, Hemlock, Holly, Euonymus, Rhododendron, Azalea and Japanese Maples. These are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to plants preferred by deer.


Simply throw a piece of fine netting over your valued plants. This process is fairly effective if your plant is of a manageable size but it does have its draw backs.

Visually its not very appealing If its not securely attached the deer will get around it or through it.


I havn't used this process to any great degree. We have tried to install an electric fence around an entire property but the smaller deer always find a way through, and they eat as much as the bigger deer.

I have seen fencing used around individual trees in the Lunenburg area. This property owner is having good success with it. It entails 4 steel stakes set back from the from the trees wrapped with snow fence. Keep the fencing back far enough so the deer can't reach the tree, about a five to six foot circle. This is good for larger deciduous trees until they reach a size where the deer can't reach their branches.

Irish Spring Soap

The smell of this soap even drives me away. I have had comments from customers that it works for them, but our attempted use failed.

Lets face it, deer are a huge problem. New rules allowing hunters to take more deer this year might help but a little. Homeowners need to find several things that work for them. Keep changing your approach and hopefully the deer will keep back.

My husband and I went into Oceanview yesterday for the first time. Had no idea how large the centre is. Also had no idea that it carries pretty well every garden/patio/deck need known to us.
