Rabbit Repellent

Critter-Blaster-Pro-animal-repellent-01.jpgWould you like to repel many types of animals over an area larger than five acres? If you answered yes, the Critter Blaster Pro is the beast for you. This animal repellent is designed for repelling animals from large areas in rural or non-residential neighborhoods. It may be too powerful for the hobby gardener due to how it repels the animals. Let’s take a look.

We checked the prices of the Critter Blaster Pro on our Ebay price check link and found it sporting a price tag anywhere from $480-$600, depending on where you buy it. This electronic animal repellent is best suited for commercial use, but could be used by a homeowner on some acreage. Repellent Review is cautious about recommending this animal deterrent to residential customers after reading about the court case filed against one user of the repellent.

This electronic repellent works by emitting sounds electronically of animals in distress or making harassing sounds. With the capability of reaching over 100 decibels, some neighbors might not be happy about having to hear an animal in distress 24 hours a day. It is effective though.

Other features include,

  • Designed for farms or vineyards, airfields, marinas, etc.
  • Eight different sounds
  • Electronic repellent uses Progammable Play for hours of different sound combinations

What makes this animal repellent so effective is because it changes the sounds that are electronically emitted. The use of only loud noises loses its effect. The animal soon determines the repellent is a non-threat.

The Critter Blaster Pro will repel raccoons, deer, dogs, foxes, bear, rodents, birds, and even bats. There is a volume control on the unit so you can turn it to your desired level. Tests have shown that this electronic repellent has significantly, and in some cases, totally eliminated the pest problem.

Critter-Blaster-Pro-animal-repellent-02.jpgRepellent Review recommends the Critter Blaster Pro for commercial use. This electronic animal repellent comes with four speakers and requires an electrical source to run. It might be wise to investigate local noise ordinance laws if you are in an area that is borderline.

Scarecrow Sprinkler Review

by M.D. on June 12, 2006

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.’

scarecrow-sprinkler-0043.jpgThis 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.
