Frequently Asked Deer Control Questions

Q. Do deer become accustomed to the sounds made by Deer Shield?

A. No. Deer Shield products harness deer’s natural fears and survival instincts to repel them.  A microprocessor randomly emits aggressive, hostile, and territorial sounds in a completely unpredictable pattern and at random time intervals and random frequency levels.  Sounds are cycled through randomly selected speakers (where applicable) to give the impression of multiple deer in danger throughout the protected area.  This keeps deer highly agitated and prevents them from acclimating to the sounds.

Q. What deer species of deer are repelled by Deer Shield?

A. Deer Shield has been proven effective at repelling white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) and mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus).  We are doing on-going testing with other deer species.  If you having problems with other types of deer, please call us.

Q. Can humans hear the sounds made by Deer Shield?

A. Yes. Deer Shield products play digital recordings of actual deer sounds to trigger an instinctual fear and flee response. All Deer Shield products have a volume control so the sound can be adjusted for maximum effectiveness and a minimum of annoyance to humans. Deer hear sound in the same frequency range as humans and are not affected by ultrasonic sounds.


Effective Deer Repellent

If your crops, garden or property have been damaged by deer, a Deer Shield unit can start protecting your property from nuisance deer today. Deer Shield achieves exceptional protection from deer by offering complete coverage of an area where deer are present. Deer, like most nuisance animals, live in an interdependent social structure. Deer Shield utilizes audible calls to signal danger, these calls cause an entire herd of deer to flee from the protected area.

Electronic Deer Control

Deer rely on camouflage and the ability to flee as their primary defense mechanisms. When a deer senses danger it makes alarm and distress sounds (audible to humans) to warn the rest of the herd, alerting them to the danger and causing them to flee. At Deer Shield, we harness the power of this innate fear by using high fidelity digital recordings of deer alarm calls as well as the sounds aggressive, hostile and territorial deer. When exposed to the combination of our proprietary sounds all nearby deer immediately flee the area.
