Scare Tactics

We consider scare tactics to be the most effective method of deterring deer.  However, not all scare tactics are created equal....

Predator Eyes on a movable post.Lights
Predator Eyes sells a product with a red flashing light that's supposed to simulate a predator looking at the deer.  Although the company has excellent customer service, I have had no luck with their lights, despite moving them every three days as instructed (which is a pain in the butt, let me tell you.) 

My father swears that they work when put four on a post as is shown in this picture, but using them that way would cost nearly a thousand bucks to protect my garden!  In addition, a study by the University of Georgia shows that deer can't distinguish the color red --- oops.
