DIY automatic bubble machine for deer repellant delivery

do it yourself automatic bubble machine low budget

diy bubble machine complete and up closeRoland made a good point yesterday about the StinkMaster After Shave being diluted in water, which got me to thinking of an alternative way of dispersing liquids through the atmosphere.

Bubbles? has the details for building an automatic bubble machine for very little money.

I'm not sure how much of a scare factor the bubbles might have on the deer, but if such a machine was set up on a timer like the StinkMaster, then maybe an hourly bubble show would be enough to keep a repulsive scent lingering in the area.

That looks like a PC power supply in the photos. If you need one or two, I'm pretty sure I have some old ones laying around... though I'm sure y'all can find them relatively easily there too. But if you can't find one, let me know and I'll mail one to ya.

Thanks for the offer! We do have a couple of old computers in the barn we could probably snag something out of. I didn't realize that's what made it go!

Thanks Shannon.

Yup...that's a power supply cover without the internal guts, which happens to be just the right height to mount the motor onto and still have the wands dip into a tray of soap. If this actually worked as a method to keep deer away then one should invest in a proper bubble machine which can be found for around 30 to 300 dollars depending on quality.

How goes the search for a gravity wave?
