Hi, I'm Jim Harmon, California Pest Management. Hey, we're going to be making some deer repellent today. Now, if you've got deer coming on to your property and that's a nice thing, but if they're starting to feed on your shrubs and your small bushes, much less getting into your garden, now we need them to move on and do their thing some place else. So, like any good cook I got all my items ready to go. We've got one egg, already in our bowl. Now, we're going to put one quart of water in with that. In addition to a quart of water, got one cup skim milk. And always make sure you read your recipe as you're going along. You don't ever want to not forget to do that because you're going to be screwing up probably. So, as we're going we have two tablespoons of cooking oil. We have olive oil around the house so we'll use that. This just helps get everything and it keeps it in solution. Then we're going to be using a little bit of dish soap. One, two tablespoons of dish soap, so at least now the measuring spoon is going to be clean. Now, if you have it you can put a little bit of chili oil or any kind of essence of jalapeno, habanero, something really hot because we want the deer to taste this and just be revolted by it. So, we're going to use a little bit of cayenne pepper. Now, be careful when you're pouring the cayenne pepper. Don't get it in your nose because you will be sneezing forever. So, we're going to take our nice little mixer and mix everything up real nice. You can use a blender for this too. Makes it a little easier. Now, we've got a nice little mix. We pour this into our hand sprayer and we go out and spray anywhere you need to. You can use a hand sprayer. We're going to use a little trigger sprayer for ours because we only have a limited area, but if you have a lot of property you could even put this into a power sprayer and run around and do where you gotta go.
