There are 1.8 million white-tailed deer in Alabama and as urbanization of forests becomes more common, these deer can become agricultural pests. This publication discusses several nonlethal management techniques including fencing and deer-resistant plantings, as well as repellents. Several tables provide information on the active ingredients, mode of action and application, reapplication timing, label recommendations, cost, and coverage of common deer repellants.
