Solving Deer Problems: How to Keep Them Out of your Garden, Guaranteed


Fear the deer! Never has nature invented a more efficient killing machine, at least from the point of view of most garden plants. Able to leap fences as tall as a human, sneak silently through the suburbs at night, and outrun a greyhound (not to mention a beagle or Labrador retriever), the deer is the number one enemy not only of the gardener but of anyone who wants to relax in the backyard without contracting Lyme disease, a deer-tick-borne, brain-damaging infection with devastating long-term effects.
In this all-encompassing manual, Peter Loewer covers: How to build a fence that will deter and withstand a deer onslaught; the use of chemical weapons such as bottled deer repellent; three hundred plants that repel deer; plants that deer just love.

He also talks about why deer seem to be threatening to overrun suburban communities, and what can be done on the local level.

Loewer concentrates on all conceivable answers to the deer problem-as well as on problems caused by other garden pests, including rabbits and woodchucks. (6 x 9, 224 pages, illustrations)

Peter Loewer has written for all the national gardening magazines, and is the author and illustrator of several gardening books, including The Wild Gardener, which was named one of the 75 Great Gardening Books by the American Horticultural Society. His radio show, The Wild Gardener, can be heard on National Public Radio in North Carolina. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
