As our area’s population increases and predators are eliminated, the local black-tail deer are increasing in
numbers. Their natural food supply in turn is dwindling. It would be very typical for the deer to turn to what is available in the neighboring gardens. Short of building a 6-8’ solid or wire fence to keep the deer out, you can use the option of planting trees and shrubs that are distasteful to them. But don’t forget that a starving animal will eat almost anything after their favorites are gone!
