I too have a water scarecrow which has proved very successful. Having read various reviews, don't be seduced by cheaper options of the original Contech water scarecrow as they appear to be a waste of money. I liked the idea that they were moveable and 24/7. I move mine around the a garden to protect areas mainly from foxes - protecting the patio from being fouled, young seedlings I have planted out, newly planted bulbs etc. My mum uses hers to scare off herons from her pond. I have no deer but deer are listed on the box so it should work for them.Although they run on a battery, it lasts for ages. You just have to remember to turn it off when you go into the garden as it will give you a shower!!
