Deer Management Program

An adult deer can consume six pounds of plant material daily. Over the course of the year that amount translates into a ton of vegetation. Valuable and sentimental plantings can be destroyed overnight by deer and other foraging animals.

Deer can also transport ticks that carry Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. A single deer can introduce 450,000 larval ticks a year into its territory.

Male deer damage trees and shrubs by rubbing the velvet off their antlers, causing wounds to branch and bark that can result in dieback of the canopy and even the entire tree.


The key to the success of Camelot’s program is the use of natural, safe ingredients that frighten and repulse deer and other herbivores. The products we use are safe for people, pets, wildlife and aquatic life. In addition, our treatments have nutrients that are beneficial for plant development. Finally, our topical sprays coat the leaf surface with a clear film that helps the plant retain moisture during dry or draught conditions.

If the size of the deer population is unusually high, additional protection can be added such as tree wraps, fencing, lighting and sound deterrents.
