I recently gave a friend of mine a Hibiscus plant as a gift.
She said it was beautiful but you know I live in the middle of no where and those petals look like Deer Chips. I laughed, because I completely forgot she was Country! As in she, “Lives in the sticks.”
She told me she would plant it and cage it up. I couldn’t imagine such a beautiful Hibiscus being caged up so the deer wouldn’t make it a mid-night snack.
I went home and started researching products that we carry in deer repellent. To my surprise we carry some great repellent. If you have a deer problem and have to cage up your flowers and gardens from hungry deer this may help you out.

The whitetail deer is the target animal of Shake-Away’s flagship product, Coyote Urine Granules. Shake-Away takes advantage of the Predator-Prey relationship and prey animals genetically programmed instinct of fear to provide our customers with a non-toxic, organic method to significantly reduce and often eliminate deer browsing problems.
Through our patented technology, Shake-Away offers the only EPA registered predator urine based products in the repellent industry.
Coyotes are the most common, natural predator of whitetail deer throughout the United States. These predators have “core areas” within a woodlot or hillside where the coyotes spend the bulk of their time–often the denning area of the coyote family unit. Odor accumulates in this area and the prey animals within a close radius of it either alter their patterns or risk being consumed.
Whitetails avoid the coyote “core areas” as they set up their patterns to feed, bed, and raise their young. Deer have a highly evolved sense of smell and will avoid the “core areas” for as long as the coyote clan maintains any den location.
Shake-Away provides an incredibly easy way to apply time-released urine-impregnated granulesin a way that simulates this “core area”.
These granules are composed of a porous, swellable, inorganic mineral that is weather resistant. By applying product as directed (twice a week for the first 2 weeks, then twice a month thereafter for maintenance) the Coyote Urine Granule product alters deer patterns and the effect is maintained for as long as the customer chooses to continue their maintenance.
The Difference between Shake-Away and Other Products
Shake-Away – uses Whitetail’s instinctual fear of predators to keep deer away
Other Products – use foul odor or taste to keep whitetail deer away. Often deer become desensitized over time to this variety of repellent.
