Though they may be adorable, deer are an unwelcome backyard visitor as they can quickly wreak havoc on your landscaping. If you’ve tried deer repellants and they’re just not working, it may be time to invest in a deer fence. These fences are not only perfect for deterring deer but also prevent other wildlife from entering your yard including raccoons, rabbits, and more. Learn more about the benefits of a deer fence in today’s blog.

Prevent Your Backyard from Becoming a Buffet With a Deer Fence

What’s so bad about deer?

While they are a beautiful example of wildlife that has continued to thrive despite development that encroaches on their habitats, deer can cause serious headaches for homeowners. One of a deer’s favorite snacks is tree bark but, when stripped, it actually causes the entire tree to die so if you have any arbors in your yard that you are particularly fond of, a deer can quickly cause its demise. Deer can also cause damage to your lawn when their hooves disturb wet and soggy soil. Furthermore, they can leave their waste behind which is a mess no homeowner wants to clean up.

What are my options for getting rid of deer?

When you have a deer problem, you have only a few options for getting rid of them: deter, scare, or exclude them. Repellents are often ineffective and scaring deer requires you to be home to constantly monitor and make noise when they appear. Therefor, the best option is to keep them out for good.

That’s where a deer fence comes in

A deer fence will prevent these pesky critters from being able to enter your yard, making it the most effective way to deal with them. Now is a great time to consider the installation of a deer fence as deer populations skyrocket in the spring and they will seek out your garden for sustenance.
