Deer Repellent

Asked March 17, 2016, 1:16 PM EDT

Our yard is a throughfare for deer. These deer ruin my plants year round. I have tried various types of spray repellents with varying degrees of success, but they don't last long and require repeated application. Do you have suggestions for repellents that work longer term? Thanks!
