The Scarecrow Sprinkler is a motion-activated sprinkler with an age-old concept. Contech Electronics has taken the scarecrow out of the ground and placed it on top of a sprinkler head. The sprinkler acts as a deterrent in the garden or lawn by spraying unwanted animals ranging from deer, dogs, cats, rabbits, large birds or other unwanted animals. Connected to a garden hose and operated by a 9-volt battery, a startling blast of water and frightening noise scare the animals when they venture into your precious territory. Intruding pests quickly get out of the way of this natural repellent.
We put the scarecrow sprinkler to the test on a farm with 19 cats, a dog, and neighboring deer. Yes. You read that correctly. This cat owner keeps plenty of felines around to keep the mouse population under control. Unfortunately, visiting coyotes act as an even better cat repellent, so she likes to keep plenty on the premises.
The scarecrow motion-activated sprinkler can protect an area up to 1000 square feet in size. We were surprised how well the sprinkler worked. The dog was the first to get hit by the cold blast. The natural fight or flight survival response kicked in and he quickly learned to avoid the area. We adjusted the sensitivity of the unit for the cats, and the scarecrow sprinkler worked just as well.
Other reviewers of this sprinkler had the same high praise. ‘We bought the Scarecrow because of the problems we had with our neighbors cats.’ ‘It is safe, non-toxic and user friendly.’ ‘The Scarecrow did a great job of keeping the cats out of our yard. I was very impressed with it. I never heard it fire but left the hose attached and the device on all the time for the first week. The connections were tight and did not leak. The spike on the bottom of the device was strong enough and sturdy enough to survive being pounded into the tough Arizona ground.’
‘This is the only thing I have ever seen that is effective against armadillos.’
‘I would say that this scarecrow sprinkler is the best “Cat repellent” period. 2 thumbs up for this product. A+’
Yet, another reviewer commented on the scarecrow sprinkler as a deer repellent. ‘It is a god sent for the deer that visit my lawn every day. They destroy everything around if the scarcrow is not up and running.’
This motion-activated Scarecrow sprinkler worked well as an animal deterrent. Congratulations to Contech Electronics for producing a safe, natural, electronic repellent. The scarecrow sprinkler is definitely worthy of 5 stars.
