About: Forget trying to deter deer with stinky soaps, human hair, or rotten eggs. Garden writer Lee Reich's invention, Deerchaser, is a harmless device that scares them off using the human voice. A radio and motion detector in one, the battery-run, weatherproof gadget covers about 25 feet with a 110 degree arc. Just tune the radio to a talk show (Rush Limbaugh works well, says Reich), and mount the device on a pole or tree. It turns on when deer get within range, then switches off after they leave. It's available on-line through several garden supply companies, so peruse the Web for the best price, then say bye-bye to Bambi.
