Protecting Your Landscaping From Hungry Deer

Protecting your landscaping from deer can be a major issue in areas of high concentration of the animal such as Door County and Northeast Wisconsin.

That's according to owner of Dave's Tree Services, Inc. Todd Burke. Burke says it is important to protect investments made in landscaping from hungry wildlife around this time of year.

Burke says a coating of thiram fungus keeps deer and rabbits off of vegetation and lasts through the winter into early summer of the following year. Burke says the fungus is non toxic to both plants and hungry animals.

According to Burke, Second homes left mostly idle during the winter months are prime targets for deer because of the lack of disturbance around the property.

 Most applications of the fungus are done during October or in the first two weeks of November. Burke says it is best to apply while it's cooler outside but above freezing.
