How to Make Homemade Pepper Spray as Deer Repellent

Deer repellents work by making treated plants smell and taste bad to the animals. They successfully reduce deer damage to plantings, and work best where the populations are low to moderate in number. Although these substances will not completely eliminate all possible damage, repellents do help quite a bit. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and deer absolutely detest it. Apply it to the plants that you want to protect from the animals every 2 weeks, and immediately following bouts of rainfall.

Puree the habaneros, garlic cloves and scallions or green onions in the blender. Add the eggs and puree the mixture again.

Pour the water into the blender and add the cayenne pepper. Liquefy the ingredients for 1 or 2 minutes.

Strain the pepper spray through cheesecloth or coffee filters.
