NEW YORK – As greater numbers of neighborhood developments are built, more and more wooded areas are being torn down to make room.
This is leading to a once unique but now relatively standard problem in suburbs across the country.
That problem is what to do with all the wildlife that is suddenly homeless. In particular, homeowners across the country are seeing an abundance of deer showing up on their doorsteps looking for food.
While the prospect of a deer eating berries outside your kitchen window can sound quite appealing, it can also be quite a nuisance, especially for lawn and garden afficionados.
Deer can trample and eat a season’s worth of work in a matter of minutes.
Thankfully, protecting your lawn and garden from such a fate can be done in a number of ways.
