Deer Scram....How to use?

vera_eastern_wa(5a-5b)April 28, 2014

Last year I used Deer Out, but am looking into switching to Deer Scram, I went to the website and read how they say to apply it...a 16" swath around plants.... but if my beds are bordered by lawn do I still apply a 16" swath of the product over the lawn around these beds? Re-apply after mowing?? Do I have to apply around each individual plant or just around the borders? Also regarding mulch....IF it's too be applied around each any every plant, would that be above or beneath mulch? Also I'm hoping I'm not going to have to re-apply each and every time I add more layers of dried grass clippings to the beds....could get rather spendy!

Thanks for any info,

any such.. you use according to the label .. perhaps supplemented by the companies website ...


Here is a link that might be useful: all links on that page are from the CO. website.... after the first advert

Have you considered Milorganite? Of course there is no true deterrent besides buckshot for a hungry deer, this seems to work well for me. My prperty is not frnced but I did grow some veggies last summer with no issues. If nothing else it is a lot cheaper than other offerings and my Canas absolutely thrived on it.
