Pests or pesticides?
We vote for neither!

Filling your yard with toxins just trades one problem for another. And you’re smart to worry. Due to their smaller size, children and pets are especially vulnerable to the harmful physical and neurological effects of synthetic pesticides. Not to mention, they’re outside much more than adults, which leads to increased exposure. Your family deserves better — and so does the planet.

We know what you’re thinking: “Does it actually work?”

We hear this all the time — and we get it: You’re right to be skeptical. There are a lot of “natural” products out there that smell great but stink when it comes to effectiveness. But this isn’t one of them. Scientifically researched and proven effective, ohDEER can hold its own against any chemical pesticide. (In other words, it smells great, AND it works great.)

Now, maybe you’re wondering HOW it works.

What the heck are bioactive compounds, right? That’s just a scientific way of saying it’s made in nature, but elicits a pharmacological effect. Like caffeine, for example. That buzz you feel is real, but it comes from a coffee bean, not a lab. In the case of ticks, mosquitos and deer, we’re using proprietary blends of essential oils that stop mosquitos and ticks in their tracks and make deer search elsewhere for a free lunch.

What’s in our products?

We don’t hide behind hard-to-pronounce chemicals. Everything we use is something you’ve heard of and trust.

TICK & MOSQUITO CONTROL
LEMONGRASS OIL:
Lemongrass oil contains citronella, a natural insect repellent that works by masking odors that attract insects so it’s harder to locate their human or animal target!
GERANIOL:
This plant-based compound is made of geranium and citronella and, like lemongrass oil, interferes with a tick’s ability to locate its host.
CASTOR OIL:
Bugs hate both the scent and texture of castor oil.
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE:
A common ingredient in dish soap and shampoo, SLS helps the repellent spread evenly across surfaces to ensure proper distribution.
CORN OIL:
Corn oil serves as a “carrier” for the other active ingredients, ensuring even application and adhesion.
DEER REPELLANT
EGG SOLIDS:
This is made from cracked eggs, unfit for human consumption — and deer agree!
GARLIC:
Vampires aren’t the only ones who hate garlic — this smell drives deer away.
WHITE PEPPER:
Deer don’t like any kind of pepper (neither do rabbits, by the way!).
PIPERITA PEPPERMINT OIL:
Peppermint smells great to humans, horrid to deer!
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE:
This is a common ingredient in dish soap that helps the product emulsify and spread evenly.
POTASSIUM SORBATE:
This is a safe, widely used preservative in foods, drinks and personal care products.

We believe you should be able to protect your family and the planet.

This means choosing products that reduce your risk of harmful diseases without endangering our planet’s delicate ecological balance. Synthetic pesticides may work in the short term, but ultimately lead to resistance in pests, which requires even more toxic chemicals. And that’s no way to live. Literally. We hope you feel good about your choice to use an all-natural product like ohDEER. Because you should! Together we’re making a difference today and for future generations.
