Bobbex Long-Lasting Deer Repellent, 32-Ounce

Last updated: June 22, 2023

In our tests, this deer repellent has consistently done its job and kept the deer away.  Prior to using it, our rose bushes never bloomed as the deer got the buds.  The only downside is that this repellent has a smell that will linger for about a day and will require reapplication every 4 weeks.
