Something that might help you sell a deer fence is that if deer are on the property, so might deer ticks that carry lyme disease.

The best thing that I have found to keep deer out is a motion activated sprinkler like this:

http://www.havahart.com/store/animal...nts/spray-away

I live in a fairly rural area and there are deer everywhere. I have a mulch customer who basically lives in the woods and he turned me on to the product. Completely passive system. No re-applications of sprays, no fences. Just need a water hose. Not great for getting a recurring bill, but very effective.

I was curious just how well it would work. I live on a farm and can see 15-20 deer from my house almost every night. I set up a couple Indian Hawthorne, which deer go crazy for, and set up one of the sprinklers. Came back the next morning and they hadn't been touched. Left it set up for a couple days and still nothing. If I would have left them out overnight without the sprinklers out I'm very confident they would have been picked clean. The customers I have recommended it to have been extremely happy.

That is a great idea!

I bet some home owners would love them to keep people from walking dogs on their lawn too! LOL
