Scarecrow Sprinkler Review

scarecrow-sprinkler-003.jpgThe 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.’

Mosquito Barrier

mosquito-barrier-image.jpegConsumers looking for a natural mosquito repellent that is both environmentally safe and effective have limited choices. Repellent review has chosen to look at one of those repellents, Mosquito Barrier. This natural deterrent contains no harmful poisons or chemicals. The key ingredient behind Mosquito Barrier is sulfur. Very potent garlic cloves are used to make a strong, garlic smelling liquid. The garlic contains a natural sulfur which acts to deter insects such as mosquitoes and ticks. The use of garlic as a natural insect repellent has been practiced for many years. Mosquitoes have a sense of smell 10 thousand times as strong as humans. The nasty garlic odor will disappear for us within a few hours, but last for weeks for the flying pests. Obviously it would be a challenge to use garlic in any area of large size. Mosquito Barrier has solved that problem.

The natural sulfur in Mosquito Barrier kills the mosquitoes on contact. After the initial spraying, mosquitoes will detect the garlic sulfur and stay away from the area. It’s best to spray mosquito barrier during the cooler parts of the day. Early morning between 8 to 10 AM, or early evening after 6 PM are recommended. Mosquito Barrier is not to be used directly on the skin. Spray this repellent on grass, shrubs, or other areas around your environment. Spraying in standing water will actually suffocate mosquito larvae according to a scientific lab report performed by a major U.S. mosquito abatement district.

A recent reviewer of the product stated, ‘I had basically quit using my patio because I was tired of bites and risk of West Nile. I also dislike using nasty chemicals that eradicate all life from my yard. I sprayed my yard (10K sqft) with Mosquito Barrier two weeks ago, and have not seen a single mosquito since. I’m sold!’

Other positive testominials on the efficacy of mosquito barrier include readers of the Detroit News. ‘According to published reports, Garlic Barrier and Mosquito Barrier have also proven to be an effective deterrent to fleas, gnats, rabbits, deer, geese and even armadillos.’

With threats of West Nile Virus and Triple E becoming more prevalent, protecting your yard from the nuisance of ticks, mosquitoes or other pests is a necessity. The garlic-based natural mosquito repellent, Mosquito Barrier, should help act as an effective mosquito control.

Mosquito Barrier can be found online for quantities ranging in size between 1 qt. and 1 gallon.
