About Deer Guys®

Meet the Deer Repellent Specialists®

Deer Guys® president and founder, Christopher J Markham, is a wildlife biologist from Rutgers University who started a landscaping business in northwest NJ in the late 90’s.  His landscape designs were being ravaged by deer damage and he experienced very minimal success with using over-the-counter repellents.  He decided to shift his focus and dedicate his time and energy to creating a superior deer repellent that would provide long-term success.  After years of research, experiments, and field testing, Chris patented a natural product that is extremely effective and has achieved amazing results.

Since 2002, Chris has been protecting landscapes from deer damage at a very high success rate. The success enabled Chris to add his two business partners, Spiro Economou and Mark Jameson in 2007 to form New Jersey Deer Control®, LLC, and in 2020 they decided to rebrand themselves with the proper fitting name of Deer Guys®.  We are Deer Repellent Specialists® and this is all we do as a company!   We are an owner-operated business that is completely dedicated to customer service and satisfaction.  Unlike some services, we use our own proprietary deer repellent that cannot be found in stores.  And unlike some repellents, our product is extremely weather-resistant, virtually odorless, and transparent.  A unique element to our company is that we actually produce our product on a daily basis which lends to its potency and is a key component to the success of our spraying service.

Our success has enabled us to grow an extensive customer base throughout the state including some clients who have been with us since the start in 2002. We have also been able to build great working relationships with many landscape and nursery professionals over the years.   We promise our clients and colleagues dramatic results against deer damage and we guarantee both our product and service.
