Default Liquid Fence

Anyone ever use Liquid Fence on their Hops? Something did a pretty good number on my place last night. Ate pretty much all the leaves off of my Hallertauer plant and hit some of my flowers(not surprising). Left the other four alone though. Anyhow, the packaging says it ok for edible items. Just curious if any one has used it before on hops, I know it works great for flowers, the trick is just remembering to spray. I was thinking I might just apply it to the bottom few feet where there are no cones. That should be enough to deter the critters.

Not the ones that fly...which can be the worst as they are big and eat a lot...

Ahhh...I have deer eating on my property every day and they have not taken any interest in the hops...sunflowers they mow like hay though. Good news is that you are probably safe from flying deer.


Best of luck!!
