INTEGRATED APPROACHES TO DEER MANAGEMENT

Tuesday, February 9,

12 – 1:30 p.m. MST

Most people love deer but, as their populations grow, the damage they can cause through colliding with vehicles, supporting tick populations that vector diseases, and obliterating our gardens and landscapes. This webinar will present an overview of effective strategies to manage deer under many conditions. We will examine their keen senses of smell, hearing, sight, and taste and how these senses can be used to repel them. Participants will learn about the plants that deer love to eat as well as those they typically avoid. Our experts will review deer deterrents, repellents, devices, and exclusionary fencing. Finally, community-based deer management plans will be discussed.
