Re: Deer damage?

Sine "pest" questions concerning damage caused by eating come up 
occasionally, I thought I would tell those of you that have deer visit your 
gardens or orchards occasionally what has worked for my son-in-law for about 
3 years now..  He planted 9 apple trees and the first winter the deer killed 
all of them by eating the branches until all that remained was a 2 foot stick 
standing there..  I had heard that deer do not like the smell of Irish Spring 
soap, so I had him shave little crumbly pieces off a bar into the bottom of 
an old nylon sock, throw the rest of the bar in and hang one from each apple 
tree ...(no, my daughter was not in the nylons at the time)..  Anyway, for 
the last three years not one deer has touched his apple trees...  He also has 
lots of trouble with the deer picking out the biggest pumpkins in the field 
and they eat the  center out of them..  This year he is going to ring the 
pumpkin patch with socks full of Irish Spring hand soap..
