Homemade Garden Liquid Fence Recipe to Repel Forest Animals

This homemade garden liquid fence recipe to repel wild forest animals is a way to create a foul smelling invisible fence that makes animals uninterested in your garden.

Wild deer can ravish a garden, destroying a whole harvest with their extreme appetites.
Many deers travel in a herd (group) therefore you could have one to twenty hungry mouths devouring your garden that you worked so hard to plant.  Raccoons, squirrels, rabbits and other wild animals can also do a huge amount of damage as well.

Homemade Garden Liquid Fence Recipe to Repel Forest Animals

Wear latex gloves, when making mixture due to it will cause extreme pain if accidentally rubbed into the eyes or mouth.

In a blender, liquefy the following:

  • 4-5 cups water

  • 5-6 fresh Habanero peppers (hottest peppers known to man)

  • 9-10 fresh garlic cloves

  • 1 cup fish sauce (available at Asian markets – smells horrific!!)

After liquefying all ingredients, strain out all pulp from the peppers and garlic. Discard pulp.
Pour into a 5 gallon bucket, cover with lid and let it sit out in the sun for 3 to 4 days to fermented.
Use gloves when drizzling on the outside perimeter of garden.
This mixture is vile nasty stuff but is guaranteed 95% effective.
It will stink for a day or two at most but the smell will go away for a human nose but wild animals will still be able to smell and be repulsed by the smell.
Apply once a week to the outside perimeter of your garden or after it rains.

Deer are frightened by the scent of potential predators, so they will avoid areas that carry a human scent. Male human urine is also a great renewable free resource of liquid fence deer deterrent that can be applied to the outside perimeter of garden. Male urine works better than female urine.
Collect and pour around garden two times a week. You can not overdo this !
My husband knows it is springtime because I request he fill 2 old plastic containers (clearly labeled “DO NOT DRINK – Yep, It’s PEE”.

Don’t worry, it will actually make your garden grow and thrive.

You may also want to plant foliage that deer dislike to discourage deer from eating your garden.  Deer dislike herbs like anise and chives, along with flowers like forget-me-nots, evening primrose, and creeping phlox.
