WHAT ARE DEER?

White-tailed deer are the most abundant big-game animal found throughout Wisconsin. These graceful creatures can run up to 40 miles per hour and jump 9-ft fences. They have brown and white fur that changes with the season. White-tailed deer are about 6-7 feet in length and vary in weight from 80 to 200 pounds. They prefer to live in densely vegetated areas with plentiful sources of food and protection. 

Deer primarily eat grass, twigs, wheatgrass, alfalfa, acorns, berries, tree leaves, and pine trees. They will also eat your garden vegetables, especially corn, tomatoes, carrots, and lettuce. 

White-tailed deer are found throughout Wisconsin in forests, farmlands, and even Milwaukee’s urban areas. Deer prefer to live in densely vegetated areas like forests, farmlands, and brushy areas that provide good food sources, protection from predators, and the weather’s elements.

The mating season for white-tailed deer runs from October through December. The spring-time is when new baby fawns are born. Fawns can walk just a few days after they are born and will stay with their mothers for about two years.

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH DEER?

The deer population across the Midwest has been growing consistently for decades. The biggest concern is automotive collisions with deer, resulting in extensive property damage, bodily injury, or potentially death. Deer will also eat away at your gardens and landscaping. Deer ticks also travel on deer, which can lead to tick problems on your property.

    Deer Repellent & Control

    Regulated hunting is the primary method of deer control. However, most suburban areas do not allow hunting. At Advanced Wildlife Control, we can place natural deer repellents around gardens and trees to discourage deer from eating them. Our tick control lawn treatments will also eliminate deer ticks in your yard that have fallen on wandering deer.
