Keeping your trees and shrubs safe from hungry deer requires Three Circles of Protection.
DeerTech, a member company of SavATree, offers a solution that combines sound and treatments, and then switches things up so the deer can't adapt. Our solution is far more effective then fencing or treatments alone. Product development and field experience on thousands of properties in high deer pressure areas has proven DeerTech's effectiveness — as has our over 95% customer satisfaction rate!
Deer are determined, agile and smart animals. So how does DeerTech succeed where fencing or treating alone have failed? We don't underestimate this formidable opponent.
DeerTech developed an effective solution to the deer problem that does not harm deer, pets, or people, by employing biologists with expertise in deer behavior, partnering with Cornell University on deer research, and undertaking extensive field testing to create the best deer prevention solution on the market.
The Science of DeerTech
DeerTech's Three Circles of Protection creates an environment that is perceived as dangerous and deters deer by attacking all their senses. Here's how DeerTech's solution works:
Our patented ultrasonic units emit sounds that compare to the equivalent of a 747 jet to a deer. It is inaudible to the human ear, but to deer, ultrasonic frequencies blocks their greatest natural defense-hearing. Our electronic deer deterrent in NY, NJ, CT, DE, and PA is disconcerting to deer. But, in most cases, not enough to keep hungry deer from eventually eating if they are hungry.
Foliar repellents and scents in combination with ultrasonic sound continue to make the deer feel unsafe eating in this area. We regularly treat with things deer do not like the taste and smell of. We also use scented products that aid in making deer feel unsafe. This makes it unsafe for them to bury their eyes in your plants to eat. The treatment makes the plants taste undesirable to deer and eating your tasty plants becomes outright unappealing.
Even the two circles of Sound and Treatments, while significant barriers, can be penetrated over time as smart deer learn to adapt. This is why DeerTech switches things up monthly to keep the deer off-balance. Deer are creatures of habit. They don't like changes in their environment. New smells and new sounds scare them. A DeerTech field technician visits your property monthly to observe and adjust accordingly the system depending on the season, weather changes, and changes in the deer behavior on your property. In a new place, or with a new scent creates a potentially dangerous environment that repels eating. It's important to understand that deer are as individual as people. It is up to the DeerTech field technician using their field expertise gained on hundreds of properties to identify your deer's behavior pattern and adjust the program to prevent the deer from destroying your plants.
