While odorless to humans, the non-toxic repellent inside these tamper-proof containers triggers the "flight" response, scaring deer away from your shrubs, flowers and vegetables. Just place on included metal stands and insert in the ground near plants you want to protect, or hang from shrubs and plantings. Tamperproof and weatherproof plastic container works rain or shine.

Comments about Deer Fortress, Set of 6:
Really wanted this to work. Tried it 2 different times, over two seasons. Same result: after a week or so, the deer ignored it while savoring our veggie garden and bushes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Do-It-Yourself
The deer had been feasting on my hostas for years. Drove me crazy! Three years ago I tried these and my hostas weren't even touched! In fact, the deer bypassed the hostas where I'd put the Deer Fortress (end of our driveway) and came all the way up to our house to get at the hostas there, that were unprotected! I've been putting Deer Fortress everywhere since then and I've never had a deer problem! Just replace at the beginning of every summer! Totally worth it!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good and Effective Product
from Cleveland, OH
I used this product as a deterrent for Deer along with Liquid Fence and Repellex animal repellent tablets (which are also sold at Gardeners.com. Sice installing the Deer Fortress the Deer activity on my roses has decreased substantially.
My roses seem to be safe again this year
By Nancy, antique rose lover
from Colorado Springs CO
We have lots of deer in our area and they loved my roses and hanging flowers. This is the 2nd year of using Sweeney's and my flowers, both in the ground and hanging, have not been nipped by foraging deer.
"A Must in My Garden"
By Deer Country Gardener
from Boxford, MA
I put this "Deer Fortress" product out in my garden area in April to protect plants that deer love to munch on after a cold winter. I have favorite plants like day lilies and hostas that survive "deer country" with these easy to use stakes. The deer are beautiful but not when they eat my plants. "Deer Fortress" is both effective and humane and a must in my garden.

Needs better stakes
from Washington Crossing, PA
My major complaint is that it comes with curved stakes that you have to straighten yourself if you want to stake the product (as opposed to hanging). While the wire bends easily enough, it is next to impossible to make it straight, so I have crooked stakes all over my garden. As far as its effectiveness -- not sure yet because I haven't had them in long enough to be sure.

Don't waste your money!
from Cary, NC
I was really hoping these deer stations would work to keep the deer away from my garden but it didn't deter them at all.
Had no effect that we could see.

For years the deer have eaten everything in the winter, holly, rhododendron, azalias, and even the juniper. I've used this product for 2 years now and the deer haven't bothered anything protected.
