Lee,

Does your contraption work on rabbits?  We have a problem with them eating garden produce.  Sprayed eggs last year, but a Rabbitchaser would be more convenient.

  Another way to repel deer is with Deerchaser, which you can purchase on the internet. Full disclosure: I developed the product. In all honesty, I would say it's about 85% effective. It's an electronic device consisting of a motion detector which, when activated, turns on a low (4 V) light and a radio tuned to low volume. 


  (For some reason, the ad writers foolishly thought the product would sell better if they said it had a bright light and made a loud noise. Not so. Deer are very sensitive to noise, especially human type noises.)


  The area protected is, I think, about 25 by 50 feet, but it can also stop them from traveling certain paths.
