Homemade Deer Repellent Spray

Dear Chicago House,

You are a dark horse. Who knew the short burst of heat we had last week would produce such abundance of color in your garden. I had no idea so many of your bushes would produce such a wonderful array of blossom. We have pink, white, fushia and yellow.

What more could a girl ask for? I know, what how about a cheap home made spray that keeps those pesky deer from eating your juicy hostas.

Low and behold here we are, coming up one homemade deer repellent spray.


2 eggs
1 cup of skimmed milk
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons of dish detergent

Whiz up in a blender and put in an old spray bottle. The deer are repelled by the smell of rotting eggs… but I have been unable to detect much of a odor so Chicago garden you will carry on smelling sweet to the likes of me.

Chicago house your hostas WILL be protected.

Love from

Creative in Chicago

  1. Is this recipe bee friendly? I have Mason Bees that I don’t want to harm and I want them to pollinate the plants.
