Hi guys got roe  on my land ,cant be culled is there any quick n cheap  method  off keeping em away ,eg rag soaked in something  or other  ,cheers 

On anything over the size of small garden ;not really. 

The now unobtainable Reynardine repelled everything, dogs   ,cats, deer, friends ,family, neighbours etc. It would take a lot of rags soaked in stinky stuff to secure the perimeter of a bit of land and they would need to be renewed regularly - labour intensive.

     Animals soon become inured to such things and the lure of some tasty food source will trump a few smelly old  socks.

And anyway   Jeyes Fluid and  creosote hardly offer a cheap solution  . Anyone rich enough to consider  using diesel at todays prices could probably afford to employ peasants to patrol the land with sticks on 24 hour basis .

 If there was a lazy solution  there would be no need for expensive deer fencing and tree guards. 🤷‍♀️

Ive seen deer in places youd never think theyd get into. Apart from hassling them i dont think you will deter them with jeyes diesel ect. Alot of deer live very urban now doesnt seem to put them off

Maybe folks thought I was kidding about Lion dung. I live right by a zoo and the keepers will let me have any amount of the stuff. It deters a number of unwanted species. Not that we have many Roe in this area so send them up this way please. Jok.
