@flowerbug , of course the hummers can't protect the crocosmia. Everyone knows they don't fly at night when the ninja deer are wreaking havoc. :rolleyes:

we need to give them night vision goggles and flight training! :) for ground troops we can enlist the chipmunks and raccoons, armored units, armadillos and turtles...

I have heard it only works with male urine if it works at all.

I used to buy an expensive granular coyote urine to use at a clients, but it wasn't obvious enough that it was effective to justify the cost.

that surely wasn't the problem here... and i also sometimes ate venison the night before to make sure the first pee of the morning was suitably strong/effective. they didn't get the hint. hungry deer will eat plants i've sprayed in the early evening that same night, i've tried a lot of other things (soaps, human hair, tripwires, noises, bb pistol to sting them, sling shot, ...). nothing has worked as consistently as a good fence - without that we'd not be able to have a vegetable garden, but that only encloses one part of the yard.

Oh my gosh! What has happened to my thread?!?! :lol:
I had an accident here on the farm a couple years ago and several times I had a catheter with a bag. Icouldn't walk and each morning my wife would take a full bag of urine to pour around the garden. I think it caused every critter in the county to come to our garden to munch on our veggies. Go figure!
I can't believe I just told you guys that :idunno.

I'm also not a believer that human male urine is effective. In Arkansas I had a private place I could take care of business when I was outside and did not want to track mud into the house to get to a bathroom. A groundhog dug a den about 5 feet away from that spot.

Don't worry Smiles, what happens on the forum, stays on the forum. ;)

we're not particularly shy around our place here so nothing like that would even make us blink in surprise... :) but Mums the word!

herbivores like greens, pee makes things greener! it's a nice cycle if you can only get them to eat the things you pee on... just don't miss! (or is that mist?)
