Hi Welshonion, the food does deter them in the main although it isn't always successful. Unfortunately there is nothing to be done re borders or fences around our property, there aren't any at all. We do have privacy from the road on two sides as we're hemmed in by very old and very tall trees but the road runs around us (its a very quiet road used only by the people who live on it and there aren't that many but as the road goes around it dips down, its gets to 40 foot by the time you get to the front door of the house and by the time you get to the back its nearer 100, and on top of that at the back of our garden is a bank, with the near on 100 foot drop to the ground, which hems the road in with woodland etc so its free reign for any animals wanting to wander there. They come straight up the bank and straight into the garden through all of the trees!
