Rotten Eggs, Garlic, & Cayenne - Byebye Deer, etc.

This stuff is about $30 retail for a quart. Much cheaper to...
Make Your Own Liquid Critter Fencing
The Garden is in, sprouting new shoots every day & you've been watching it grow. Unfortunately, so have the rabbits, moles, gophers and deer!

  1. Start with a 1 gallon Plastic Jug.
  2. Puree 12-18 eggs in a blender- this makes them smooth & not clumpy, pour them into your jug.
  3. Add approximately 3-5 T. of Fresh minced Garlic.
  4. Add 1 T. Cayenne Pepper Powder.
  5. Tighten the top & shake Vigorously. Add water to fill to 3/4 of the way full.
  6. Let the container set for 7-10 days, allowing the eggs to putrify.
To Use: Open outside, filter out solids, attach a spray nozzle to the top and spray around your garden. You will need to reapply 1x weekly & after any heavy rains. While it will stink upon application. After several hours it will dry and not smell (to you anyway!) The critters- moles, deer, rabbits, gophers, will not come anywhere near it!
