NY Deer Control - Featured Garden

DeerTech Protects the Historic Lyndhurst Estate

DeerTech began protection of the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, NY back in 2005. A sprawling National Historic Trust property, Lyndhurst was the home of the wealthy Gould family whose passion for horticulture lives on to this day on the impeccably maintained grounds.

When the Lyndhurst Estate contacted DeerTech they were struggling with a deer infestation that was changing the landscape of the property. The Rock Garden, Fern Garden and historic Rose Garden were all suffering from extensive deer damage. The Rose Garden was particularly hard hit and, as the site for countless weddings over the years, the deer damage was an economic as well as aesthetic concern.

DeerTech's Three Circles of Protection allowed these gardens to rebound over the course of the spring and summer. Lyndhurst was even kind enough to allow DeerTech a research space on the property, where we test newly developed New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware deer control strategies. Come visit Lyndhurst and see DeerTech in action!

Read about why our Three Circles of Protection Program is so successful. Take look at our for the trade and tick control pages where you can find out more information about DeerTech. We also offer deer fencing and deer repellent to our customers.

DeerTech featured in The Home Monthly:

Homeowners v. Deer

June Issue 2008

[Article from The Home Monthly Special Section of Greenwich Post, New Canaan Advertiser, The Wilton Bulletin, The Redding Pilot, The Darien Times, The Ridgefield Press, The Weston Forum, The Lewisboro Ledger.]

After a recent survey by helicopter, Howard Kilpatrick, a deer biologist for the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, said ¬â¬€ˆæFairfield County has the highest deer density in Connecticut, averaging 60 deer per square mile.¬â¬€ˆø

¬â¬€ˆæWe have a shade garden with hostas, rhododendrons, and impatiens,¬â¬€ˆø said Candy Goldstein, a Westport resident. ¬â¬€ˆæIt would be beautiful one night and decimated the next morning. DeerTech has been the most effective protection against deer damage. Between their technology and monthly service, we haven¬â¬€ˆ†t had any deer damage since the system was installed.

DeerTech provides ¬â¬€ˆæThree Circles of Protection¬â¬€ˆø¬â¬€ˆ§ a patented combination of ultrasound, a 12-month proprietary treating program, and a technique of switching things monthly to keep deer from adapting. Fairfield County homeowners spend a fair amount on fencing, treating, and other one-track methods, which can be limited in their effectiveness.

According to Greg Lake, DeerTech president and a Greenwich resident, this is because deer are far smarter and more athletic than people might think. ¬â¬€ˆæDeer eat around eight pounds of vegetation per day,¬â¬€ˆø said Lake, ¬â¬€ˆæand hungry deer can easily leap eight- to 10-foot fences when they know there is food on the other side.¬â¬€ˆø

DeerTech¬â¬€ˆ†s comprehensive solution works by assaulting all the deer¬â¬€ˆ†s senses simultaneously, creating an environment the deer perceive as dangerous. The company¬â¬€ˆ†s patented ultrasonic unit emits a frequency that is nearly inaudible to humans, dogs and birds but sounds like a 747 jet to deer. Ultrasonic frequencies are DeerTech¬â¬€ˆ†s first circle of protection. They block the deer¬â¬€ˆ†s greatest natural defense¬â¬€ˆ§hearing. Ultrasound is disconcerting to deer, but, in many cases, the ultrasound is not enough to keep hungry deer from eventually eating if they observe no predators and learn to listen through the sound.

As a second level of protection, the company utilizes treatment developed by a wildlife biologist (often composed of predator scents) in combination with ultrasound. Deer smell a predator but can¬â¬€ˆ†t see it nor hear from which direction it might be coming. They also find the taste unpalatable, so the combination makes the plants totally undesirable.

While significant barriers, even these two circles of sound and treatment can be penetrated by deer smart enough to adapt. This is why DeerTech switches the sound and treatment monthly to keep the deer off balance. A field technician comes to adjust the systems depending on the season, weather changes, and deer browsing behavior.

DeerTech featured in Westchester Times: Outsmarting Hungry Deer - June 13, 2008

Outsmarting Hungry Deer - Homeowners Concerned about Valuable Landscaping Investments

¬â¬€ˆæThe average deer density across Westchester is around 25 deer per square mile and may be higher than 50 deer per square mile in non-hunted areas,¬â¬€ˆø said Kevin Clarke Regional Deer Biologist, for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, after considering recent data. This fact is bad news for homeowners in Westchester, unless they take steps to protect their landscaping investment from hungry deer.

¬â¬€ˆæThe deer had been destroying my landscaping for years,¬â¬€ˆø said Barbara Abrams, a Westchester homeowner. ¬â¬€ˆæIt took a better solution to fencing or treatments to keep the deer from eating my plants. My garden now looks beautiful and I can plant flowers. I would have never invested again in landscaping without DeerTech.¬â¬€ˆø

DeerTech provides ¬â¬€ˆæThree Circles of Protection¬â¬€ˆø¬â¬€ˆ§a unique combination of patented ultrasound, a 12-month proprietary treating program, and switching things up monthly to keep deer from adapting. Though the company states it is unknown exactly how much Westchester County homeowners spend on deer deterrents each year, it is known that fencing, treatment, and other one-track methods can be limited in their effectiveness.

According to Greg Lake, President of Westchester based DeerTech, this is because deer are far smarter and more athletic than people might think. ¬â¬€ˆæDeer eat around eight pounds of vegetation per day,¬â¬€ˆø said Lake. ¬â¬€ˆæAnd hungry deer can easily leap eight to ten foot fences when they know there is food on the other side.¬â¬€ˆø

DeerTech¬â¬€ˆ†s comprehensive solution works by assaulting all the deer¬â¬€ˆ†s senses simultaneously, creating an environment the deer perceive as dangerous. The company¬â¬€ˆ†s patented ultrasonic units emit a frequency that, while nearly inaudible to humans and dogs, sounds like a 747 jet engine to deer. Ultrasonic frequencies are DeerTech¬â¬€ˆ†s first circle of protection. They block the deer¬â¬€ˆ†s greatest natural defense¬â¬€ˆ§hearing. Ultrasound is disconcerting to deer. But, in many cases, the ultrasound is not enough to keep hungry deer from eventually eating if they continuously observe no predators in the area and learn to listen through the sound.

As a second level of protection, the company utilizes treatment developed by a wildlife biologist (often composed of predator scents) in combination with ultrasound to simulate a dangerous environment for deer. Deer smell a predator and can¬â¬€ˆ†t identify where the predator might be hiding or hear which direction they may be striking from. It becomes unsafe for them to bury their eyes in plants to eat. Additionally, using treatment on the plants make them taste undesirable to deer, so the whole, now scary process of eating a homeowner¬â¬€ˆ†s tasty plants becomes outright unappealing.

However, even these two circles of sound and treatment, while significant barriers, can be penetrated over time if a smart deer learns to adapt. This is why DeerTech switches things up monthly, to keep the deer off-balance. The company sends a field technician to every customer¬â¬€ˆ†s property each month to observe and adjust accordingly the system depending on the season, weather changes, and the deer behavior on the property.
