Oak Forest wildlife control tip of the month: Deer Removal
Deer are ruminant mammals of the order Artiodactyle. There are about a hundred types of deer which include the reindeer, whitetail deer, blacktail deer, moose, elk, caribou and mule deer. They adapt well in many different types of habitats but prefer living in edges, which are natural habitat breaks or human-made habitats such as those transformed from woods into croplands. Deer feed on plants and they can consume about 2.5 pounds of food in a day in the summer season. Since they eat by biting and walking, they can damage more food than they actually eat. Problems they cause
The main problem that deer cause is eating garden plants. This is a big issue that necessitates deer removal because these animals can ruin entire plants after feeding on them in just once. They also damage trees and it is therefore difficult to maintaining a beautiful landscape or garden when a large population of deer is present. You can think about deer removal when you find that the plants in your garden ragged and missing shoots. Deer also cause difficulties when you want to plant new grass. Another example of the problems they cause that necessitates deer removal is encounters with these animals on highways, which cause death or damage to vehicles. Every year in the United States, two hundred people die and twenty five thousand people are injured as a result of car deer collisions. More than five hundred thousand deer die in these collisions and this has a big impact on nature. Ticks are another example of the problems they cause since they carry ticks responsible for Lyme disease, tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and equine encephalitis. The ticks cause a threat to house pets and livestock. These ticks are prevalent underbrush and areas that are heavily wooded. In order to avoid suffering from the consequences of these diseases, deer removal is necessary. How to Keep away deer from your farm. Fencing
Yon can keep deer way from your property through fencing. You can use a perimeter boundary that incorporates sturdy metal, wood or fiberglass posts that extent one foot below the ground and eight to ten feet above the ground. Make sure that openings are no more than four inches wide regardless of the fencing material you use. When you want to achieve efficient deer removal, you can choose to use an electric fence. Setting up such a fence is not expensive and you can get all the supplies you need to set up such a fence from a farm supply store. You can also use a plastic deer fence, which offers a superior deer removal method that is harmless, cheap and effective. The material used to make the fences is UV resistant and does not rust or corrode. It is easy to install it and it comes with sturdy T posts, which can be ten to twelve feet high to prevent the animals from jumping into your garden. The other types of fences you can use for deer removal are welded and polypropylene mesh fences. Plant deer repellent plants
The other deer removal method that you can use is planting crops that deer do not like such as chives, catnip, honeybush, onion, sage, lavender, yarrow, thyme and spearmint. You can also plant hedges around the garden area in order to reduce the garden's view. Scare devices
There are numerous types of scare devices that are useful for deer removal. One of them is strobe lights that flash or rotate. You can also install sensor or motion lights that come on when the deer approach. Another deer removal device you can use is string mylar tape, which moves and reflects between trees. You can also anchor helium balloons that have a monofilament above the ground. Another option is to play animal noises on a radio or let the radio play normally. Other useful devices for deer removal are aluminum pie pans which bang together. You can also buy and install an ultrasonic device, which deer cannot tolerate but is not audible to humans. If you have sprinklers, you can set their motion detection or rotate their timers in a manner that does not let deer learn the schedule. Chemical repellents
Deer removal can also be accomplished with the use of commercial repellents that make plants give off noxious odors or become unpalatable. They are available at nurseries and hardware stores. You can also make your own repellents by using 2oz of chopped garlic, 2oz of red pepper sauce and a quart of water. You should then strain the mixture and use a garden sprayer to apply it on the plants. The other chemical repellents that you can use for deer removal are predator urines such as those of coyotes. However, the research completed about the use of these products is limited. The other repellents that you can use are human hair and bars of soap. All the repellents available are safe to use because they do not harm plants in any way. Trapping or shooting
Deer removal can also be achieved by using the following trapping tips. You can set up netted cages, rocket nets, drop nets or dart rifles. Netted cages are not as effective as rocket and drop nets. You can set up the traps in your backyard. Shooting - This deer removal method can be very effective in reducing the number of deer in a given area. You can shoot the animals with a rifle/shotgun or with bows and arrows.
