Keeping the deer and rabbit out of your fruit bushes
By Tammy Sons
There are several ideas to ridding your fruit trees and bushes from deer and rabbit. These animals love these types of plants and will devour them to get their food. You may place chicken wire around the bottoms of fruit trees and also around smaller fruit bearing bushes to rid them from the rabbits. With deer this would also work if covered entirely with chicken wire for smaller fruit bushes. Your best friend, your dog, might just come in handy at doing this task also. A dog will usually bark when they see rabbits or deer and this would scare them away if the dog is kept close enough to the bushes or trees. You may also want to invest in a repellent that you can actually spray on the plant that will keep deer and rabbits away. Sometimes these animals are just determined to eat small fruit bushes such as blueberries and fruit from your fruit trees. Not very often but sometimes you may need to fence in your area where you have your garden and trees planted. Another way it to hang noise making items around these plants, usually if there is noise around these animals will not want to come up close. You may also place moth balls around these plants and trees to deter these animals. A fabulous garden nursery or online nursery to checkout would be www.tnnursery.net.
