As the summer turns to fall, we become more aware of the wildlife that lives amongst us. The squirrels are harvesting nuts, the geese are starting to fly south, and the deer begin migrating. Not only are the deer a problem for vehicles, they can cause havoc within a landscaped yard. Male deer removing the fuzz from their antlers will rub against any tree that they can get access to, thus causing bark damage and opening up the tree- causing serious problems down the road.
The deer will start to eat whatever they can to survive, including your landscape plants, as they prepare for winter.
People do not often think of deer as pests but during this time of year, they can be considered pests because of the damage that they can cause. There are many products on the market to repel deer and rabbits away from homes and landscapes- call our office for pricing and more information. (314) 647-4800
