Multiple natural ingredients work in different ways: as an irritant to the mouth, nose or gut, or triggering the deer's natural instinct to escape/avoid. Also disguises the plants natural smell which attracts deer in the first place. The innovative delivery system includes six diffusers and 12 oz. of Scent-inal Activator.

You get enough to keep deer away for a full year! Includes six diffusers and six twist ties to attach them to shrubs, etc. Activator has an applicator top to make it easy to refill the diffuser without spilling.

So far, so good
from Akron, OH
Comments about : Go Away Scent-inal Deer Repellent:
Worked well for us on some hydrangeas behind the garden fence that they normally chew clean all buds. Haven't tried it on more delectable plants. Smelly soaps have worked well for the fruit trees. Everything else needs to be sprayed every 2 weeks. Looks like Bobex lasts longer and seems to be as effective.

Worked great last year
Due to a wet spring, corn was planted late & not available for deer to browse. So they chose my plants. Worst year ever. I'm hoping this is effective again when they have corn to eat instead.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far so good
By Trying New Deer Repellent
from St Louis, MO
I utilized some wire croquet tunnels in order to hang the little bottles; would recommend some type of stake be included with the product.

Since we purchased this product we have seen no more deer.
It's working the deer are not eating my plants. I plan to bu
Use as directed
more of an attractant than a repellent
I got this to hang in my fruit trees. I have a small plum tree that the deer keep eating. they actually hadn't eaten the leaves for a few weeks and then I put one of these in each of my 6 fruit trees and two days later I come home from work and the young plum tree is missing half of its leaves and my daughter tells me the deer had come back. I think it is more of an attractant than a deterrent!
Merchant response: We apologize that this reviewer had bad luck with the Deer Scentinal Repellent. Deer tend to move and roam through their habitat, so they may disappear for a while then reappear. Depending on how determined the animals are to get to your plants, scent based deterrents may not work. We offer different types of deer repellent/fencing, and bird netting which works well for protecting fruit trees and bushes. As always if you are not satisfied with your purchase at Gardener's Supply Company, call our customer service department at 1-800-876-5520 so we can help you find a suitable resolution.
By Deer Hostage
from Paradise Valley, MT
As noted under 'Cons', this liquid product dried up in less than 24 hours in the dry climate of Montana's mountain west. Moreover, the scent did not repel our Mule Deer, who were happily chewing all the buds off an old Harrison's Yellow Rose less than 6 hours after I hung two of the little bottles in the shrub. For me, it was a TOTAL waste of money.
