There is finally a way to keep unwanted animals out of the garden! Cats, Dogs, Deer, Rabbits, Raccoons, large birds and many others. When the patented Scarecrow sees an intruder it instantly releases full garden hose water pressure towards the trespasser. The effect is both startling, immediate and humane! Animals quickly get out of the area and avoid it in the future. A truly safe animal repellant.
Just hook up to your garden hose, plug in the battery and point it over the area to be protected. It's that easy.
Uses 2-3 cups of water per deterrence!
Runs for months and 'fires' up to 5000 times on one 9 volt battery!
Detects animals day and night!
Sprays only over the area to be detected!
Easy to install, move, and store!
Eco-friendly and chemical-free!
A humane solution to unwanted intruders!
Scarecrow senses animals the same way security lights detect people; movement and heat. When an animal is seen, a valve opens instantly releasing a three second pulsating spray of water. The combination of the sudden noise, movement, and water frightens animals away.
Why it Works:
The Scarecrow invokes a memorable and unpleasant form of deterrence through a combination of:
Sudden Unexpected Noise
This unpleasant experience is quickly associated with the location. To avoid similar surprises they begin to avoid the area. While humans flee several steps after activating a Scarecrow motion activated sprinkler, animals are scared to a much greater degree, run much further and stay away longer.
We attribute this difference in part to the inherent fight or flight mechanism found in most animals and their lack of intelligence or ability to ‘figure out’ what caused the annoying noise and motion.
Other reasons why the Scarecrow works:
Training/repelling is consistent at the location, 24 hours a day
It is the environment rather than a person or other animal doing the 'conditioning'
The water spray distributed is sufficiently surprising and unpleasant to communicate an immediate 'Leave now' message.
Frequently Ask Questions:
Q: How many Scarecrows should I use to protect my valuable Koi?
A: We recommend two, positioned 90 degrees apart to create a 'cross-fire' over each 1000 square feet of pond.
Important note: If you have persistent and very hungry animals or birds, fence in your Koi. We cannot accept responsibility for losses.
Q: Overall height?
A: About 24 inches.
Q: Does it have a Sensitivity adjustment?
Q: Does it have on/off capabilities?
Q: Does my water run continuously?
A: No. A small amount of water is used only when the sprinkler is set off.
