Whether you live close to the mountains or in one of our more arid landscapes, you are likely to encounter one of these hungry guests at some point during the year. There are a handful of options you can use as a deterrent which will not harm the animals, the environment, or humans, and can also help to keep your yard looking beautiful.
The cheapest and easiest option is to try one of the many different types of repellent sprays. These sprays can be purchased at any of the local nurseries and can easily be applied by you (or by Desert Rose, if you would like!).
But be warned, these sprays can smell terrible! A few notable (but effective) ingredients can include coyote urine (to make the animals think there is a coyote in the area) or a mix of putrefied eggs, sulfur, garlic, cayenne peppers and mint oil (to make the plants taste terrible). The sprays need to be re-applied after it rains and every couple weeks. It doesn’t work 100% of the time, but it can help deter animals to protect your plants.
