i use 1 method to stop intruders in my garden.i use a 2 or 2 1/2 pump sprayer and fill with water then i put 4 cap fulls of garlic powder,4 capfuls of onion powder and 2 capfuls of ceyenne pepper in water and stir it up and spray edges of garden once a week (works good).you can get these powders in the spice section at family dollar or dollar general for 1 dollar a bottle.another friend of mine raises a very big garden and sells to road side vendors and he had trouble with deer and the game commision told him to string fishing line around garden and he said his deer problem was gone.they can feel the string but cant see it and it scares them (clear fishing line) (1 strand waist high) tied on wooden stakes.

I have tried l A lot of different things but the double electric fence and rabbit wire works the best for me and also mash any insect that I find on my plants.In the fall I will open a section fence closes to a good tree for my stand and put the widow to work
