organic deer repellents vs. natural deer repellents
the term organic deer repellentis often used interchangeably with natural deer repellentand to some degree they are the same.
organic simply means made of materials found in nature, but to be "certified organic" a deer repellent must be tested for complaince with the united stated department of agriculture (usda) regulatory framework governing organic products. the usda has established the national organic program (nop)to do this. manufacturers who wish to use the workd "certified organic" in reference to their products must comply with the usda standards.
in addition, the organic materials review institute (omri)is an independent non-profit organization that examines products to determine if the product is organic, and the omri also issues organic certification.
no certification is required for a deer repellent to be labled as a "natural" or "all natural" , a natural deer repellent may not be 100% natural and may contain manufactured substances whereas an "all natural" deer repellent should not contain manufactured ingredients.
the consumer should be aware that sometimes products are labeled in a deceptive manner and they should read the fine print.
"organic" deer repellents made from thigns that occur in nature would include milorganite, predator urine, lion feces, fermented blood, feather meal, cat feces, and bags of human hair but these gross things would not be "certified organic".
a certified organic spray-type deer deterrent should be made of only certified organic ingredients like pepper oil, garlic oil, eggs, etc.

most homemade deer repellents are natural and organic and if they are made of certified organic ingredients they would be the equivalent of a certified organic repellent.
