Deer, rabbit repellents the topic of Sept. 27 program

Is your vegetable garden devastated by hungry rabbits? Are the deer “pruning” your landscape evergreens into Alice in Wonderland forms? Have you tried to banish these marauders from your property with no success?

Dr. Scott Williams will present potential solutions for these problems on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at the North Haven Recreation Center, 7 Linsley St. Sponsored by the Daytime Gardeners of North Haven, this program will take place from 11 a.m. to noon. Guests are welcome and should register by calling 203-239-1557. A donation of $5 is appreciated.

Dr. Willams is a Research Scientist in the Department of Forestry and Horticulture at the CT Agricultural Experiment Station in New Haven. His research focuses on the deleterious impacts of white-tailed deer, invasive plant species, and blacklegged tick overabundances, on the health of local ecosystems and the public.

He is also knowledgeable about other Connecticut wildlife including songbirds and other migratory birds, game birds, small and medium-sized mammals, and fish.
