A new deer repellent called BrowseBan has just received federal registration for use on apple, cherry, grape and several vegetable and field crops. It contains the active ingredients capsaicin and related capsaicinoids. It is recommended for use at 1 gallon of product per 100 gallons of water. Application in high deer pressure areas is recommended to begin prior to growth in spring and continue on a 7-day schedule. In moderate to light pressure areas, application should begin at the first sign of damage and continue on a regular schedule. Rainfall after application may reduce effectiveness.
