Deer Repellant for Your Garden

Are the deer eating your garden? Mix 2 eggs with one cup of water in a blender. Add 1 cup of milk,3 cloves of crushed garlic and a couple of tablespoons of dish soap (this will help it stick to the plants)
Mix thoroughly. Apply with a sprayer.
The smell of garlic and rotting eggs will help repel the deer, while the scent will be very faint to you.
