    I got this off some website a while ago and it works for me. Here is the formula;
    I got a large pot from a garage sale and put the following in it.
    one of gallon water
    a bar of ivory soap graded up
    large bulb of garlic with like 10 cloves crushed up.
    2 ounces of crushed red pepper flakes. I use the cheapest stuff I can find.
    Now bring it to a boil and stir until the soap dissolves. Then put it somewhere it can sit for a week. Finally pour it through a fine strainer to get the chunks out so it won’t clog your sprayer. You can use container the water came in to store what you are not using. Spray often in the beginning and after heavy rain or a lot of new growth. Good luck. I hope it works for you like it works for me. MB

    I use a deer repellant spray in my nursery. My sister on Van island has also used this to ward off the deer from her hostas. The trick is to be consistant. Spray every 2 weeks if its raining (usually when plants are actively putting on new foliage) and every 6 in the sunshine during summer.

    In a 1 gallon sprayer, put 2 beaten & strained eggs (strain them or they will plug your sprayer).
    Add 1 cup of milk, yogurt, sour milk or the like
    1 tsp of liquid dish soap ( can use safer’s soap if you have a bug problem too)
    1 tsp of liquid cooking oil (helps it stick and stay on the plant)
    30 drops of essential herb oils (can buy a 2 month supply size vial from most health food stores or the health isle in the big stores. Buy ‘essential’ oils as they are the most concentrated.)

    Top off the tank with water and pump it up. You only need to mist your plants and don’t have to spray them until run-off. The trick to this recipe is that deer hate eggs and milk and most herbs. I use clove, oregano, and found they don’t like the smell of eucalyptus or cinnamon oil also. Every so often I vary the smell with a different herb. I can mist my whole nursery and the trilliums in my 3 acre forest in under 1/2 hour. Apparently you can add 1 tsp of hot tobasco to this for rabbit problems but I found it pugged my sprayer.

    The deer were eating all of my seed stock trilliums planted in the forest. I started using this spray and the first year the odd one still was eaten or a bite taken from the leaf. The second year, just the odd bite. The third year, I was slow in getting out to spray the trilliums and thought they would all be eaten but the deer had associated the smell with the trilliums and the trilliums were safely blooming away in the forest! Of course I still spray them as new deer coming into the territory won’t know about the smell and I don’t want to take any chances!
