Alpaca manure as deer repellent

Asked April 16, 2020, 10:57 AM EDT

I live adjacent to Quiet Waters Park in Anne Arundel county. As of about two years ago we started having a significant deer problem. I bought some Alpaca manure for fertilizer but I now read it may be good as a deer repellent. Is the success conjecture, anecdotal, or is there more hard evidence on this.

We are not aware of any research done on alpaca manure as a deer repellent.
Here is our page on deer, including links to repellent information: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/deer
If you were growing vegetables, fruits or other edibles, we would always suggest only using only aged, composted manure, where any original contents are indistinguishable and there is only a fresh, earthy smell.
