DeerPro Winter -One Application Lasts all Winter
With DeerPro, one spray as early as September protects woody ornamental plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas, hemlocks and pine all winter long. That’s six solid months of protection – all the way until April, when the deer diet changes to feeding on broad leaf weeds, annuals, and perennials.
Other commercial sprays and repellents must be reapplied every couple of months. Not DeerPro. That’s an important advantage, considering it is difficult, if not impossible, to spray repellents in the freezing temperatures and snowy conditions of January and February.
DeerPro Looks Better
While other commercial applicators have also developed thiram-based sprays, their products leave a heavy white residue on the plants. The landscape looks like it got hit by an early snowstorm or some sort of artificial blight. DeerPro is green, so it looks less artificial and blends in better with the natural surroundings and will break down in spring.
How long does DeerPro Last?
One spray in the fall protects plants all winter long.
What plants do you spray?
Deer eat woody ornamental evergreens and shrubs during the winter months. Spray those plants that they do eat and do not spray plants like Boxwood and Andromeda, which they do not eat.
How does DeerPro work?
The active ingredient in DeerPro is Thiram, a fungicide that is also used as an animal repellent because of its bad taste. Deer that try to eat plants treated with DeerPro will spit out the leaf and leave the shrub alone.
Is DeerPro safe?
DeerPro has been used safely to protect shrubs for 25 years. People and pets should stay inside while spraying and for about an hour to give the spray a chance to dry. Once DeerPro has dried on the shrubs it is safe to be outside.
Is DeerPro clear?
No, the active ingredient in DeerPro is white. We add a colorant to the spray to help it blend in with the shrubs. However, DeerPro does leave a noticeable residue on treated shrubs. It will break down in the Spring.

PROFESSIONAL APPLICATOR QUOTE:
“I tried the summer formula of Deer Pro and IT DOES WORK! I treated three locations that were monitored for deer activity by the homeowners. All reported amazing results.”
Treatment date 6/28/10 follow-up date 8/4 (five weeks later; periods of heavy rainfall occurred during this time also).
Location 1: Had four potted plants; I treated three. The deer ate the untreated plant. (This was the customer’s 3rd planting this year in the pots — all others eaten.)
Location 2: Spot treated several plants/shrubs on residential lot, mostly ones that were the hardest hit by deer. She has tried several products in the past, none worked. Property owner very skeptical; even stated she would eat her hat if the deer stopped eating a particular shrub that has not bloomed in many years. After five weeks property owner reports the possible need to “wash her hat” (although shrub has not bloomed, deer have not eaten); she has not seen many of her plants/flowers bloom in nearly ten years, until now.
Location 3: Spot treated several shrubs — areas remained uneaten for four weeks.
“No complaints of offensive smell — all were satisfied with results.”
