You might think that because the weather has turned cold and it’s no longer gardening season, you can forget about deer damage. If only that were true!
Although deer tend to fatten up before the first snow fall, the cold and snow quickly deplete precious calories and hides nutritious treasures in their natural environments. It is under these circumstances that animals will change their usual eating habits often to the detriment of your landscaping efforts.
People tend to think that there is a definite line between the plants that deer like from what they don’t. This is not the case. Deer and other animals will move up and down the spectrum of available food sources due to simple environmental variables such as climate, available food source, animal population, and geographical space. These are only a few variables that influence deer and other animal to feed on plants.
The more urgent any one of these variables is, the more likely the animals will move along the spectrum line to a plant or shrub that no one thought they would eat. We make the same choices every day. Would you rather have filet mignon or a hamburger, or for the vegetarians out there that choice between and beautifully made salad or a plate of celery sticks? As home owner’s, just remember in desperate, times deer and other animals will eat almost anything to survive.
