Peanut butter is a commonly used attractant for a baited electric deer fence.
Placing aluminum foil tents over the deer fence wire with peanut butter underneath is one way to bait the fence. Put these tents every several feet.
Also, using a slurry made from peanut butter and vegetable oil, the entire deer fence wire can be coated using a paint roller.
A peanut butter fence for deer can be a simple as a single electrified wire about 2 ï¿½ feet high or it can be several strands.
The problem with using peanut butter is that it separates, molds, dries out and otherwise deteriorates and so it has to be replaced often. Another problem with using peanut butter to bait your fence is that it attracts many kinds of animals; dogs, cats, raccoons, possums, squirrels, birds, and insects, etc., each with its associated problems.
