My hostas around the house are targeted by deer as soon the first leaf starts showing up until the last leaf left. My property is fenced, but local code does not allow the fence high enough to keep deer safely away. One deer jumper is enough to cause quite damage. This product comes with manual sprayer, no mixing, ready to spray. Instruction on the container tells clearly how to assemble sprayer and how to work with it. Itâs very simple. The hand held sprayer has smaller container with the piston. You pulled the piston out and then you just push on button and it starts spraying. Pulling the piston goes easy, no any strength needed. No any leak anywhere.
The instruction advises that plants should be sprayed just lightly. If you donât have too many plants to spray the size of sprayer container is OK. Otherwise you have to pull the piston in the order to fill up small container in sprayer very often. On another hand, thanks to this small container the sprayer is very lightweight. The pressure coming out from sprayer is surprisingly strong; it easily shoots for distance 8-10 feet. I tried to adjust spray pattern by twisting the nozzle as advised, but did not see any difference in pattern. It would be nice if it could be adjusted to mist spraying or at least to disperse the spray better. I learned, the farther I aim, the better is dispersing on the end.
The spray smells like a cinnamon (contains some cinnamon oil). The smell does not last long. The next day I could not smell anything. According to mfr. spraying should be repeated approximately after a month or when next deer damage occurs again. This is little wacky assurance about effectiveness. Some decade ago I used the deer spray which lasted 6 months. Only disadvantage of that one was, that it left grayish look on all shrubs.
As is said on the container, this product was not registered with EPA. The ORTHO (Mfr.) Group represents, that this product qualifies for exemption from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
1 gallon container including tube and sprayer are well and solid made and can be reused. I like permanently attached sprayer holder, it can be stored as one unit, no any loose pieces around. Not a drop of leaking during spraying. I will re-use it for other spraying in the future.

I like to switch deer repellents to keep the deer off my plants. This was new to me at the end of last season,so I bought it to try. It smells like cinnamon/cloves and it does not matter if I get it on me! unlike the other stinky deer repellents. I do put it on about once a month, our deer are pretty persistent, so no matter what I use, I do re-apply based on time/weather. It will be very hard for me to go back to the stinky stuff, and I probably won't unless the deer start chewing my plants with this product in place.

We saw your commercial for Deer B Gon a few months ago that guaranteed this product to work. This is the first year in I don't know how many that we actually had lily's, roses, rhododendron's and dahlia's that bloomed. The deer don't even try to eat the buds. Thank you for a product that works. We've tried other products, but none did the job.
