Anti-deer machine #3

Another deer made it into our perimeter last night, although it was the section not protected by the 2 noise generators. He even left a pile of droppings as a not so subtle comment on how he feels about the new anti-deer contraptions. The garden suffered some serious damage to one of the best producing beds of strawberries we have.

The short video clip above is the 3rd generation model in action. I used a small metal fence post for this one because there was no trellis post to take advantage of in this new location.

We finally solved the deer in the garden problem, and the solution was so elegant we gave it a new website.  Check out our deer deterrent website for free plans!
