Worked for Deer

Date:September 25, 2013
"I planted the garden in the spring, as soon as the garden sprotted the Deer were there. I setup the ScareCrow and the garden was perfect, the Crow got me and some others, but that was OK.
This is much better than a fence!!!

No more stray cats, wandering dogs and hungry deer

Date:May 22, 2013
"Excellent product worked extremely well keeping stray cats from using flower beds as their litter box and even kept our small dog from digging up in the back garden.
Loaned in to a friend with deer eating his yard and he claimed worked like a charm. Caution must be used as the crow works well on humans as well if you forget to turn it off.
I wish it was a little more sturdy but mine is not broken yet, and the water connection is a little high, easily fixed by digging a small channel on the rear of the unit once installed."

Raccoons didn't trip the motion sensor

Date:September 14, 2012
"We were hoping it would deter a local raccoon family from digging up our lawn. Tried different sensitivity settings and locations but raccoons were cavorting over our lawn and digging right in front of the Scarecrow and they did not trigger the motion sensor. Howver it did work really well when I accidentally walked past it on a number of evenings. And our paperboy sure got a surprise on at least one morning. ."

Not for scaring off everything

Date:September 8, 2012
"I bought this to put out on Halloween so that kids won't come to my door. But it didn't do so well. Oh well, I'll just turn off my lights next year."

A deterent that works

Date:February 26, 2009
"I have three of these and no longer worry about the deer eating my tulips and other flowers in the front yard. The Racoons hate it as they don't like getting wet and the Herron that tries to get my Koi for a fresh sushi dinner is terrified of the two in the back yard. It also gets my neighbour several times a year. Great Machines and easy to program."

kinda works

Date:September 19, 2008
"It did seem to reduce, maybe even eliminate, our problem with wild animals eating our garden. Even our cat is now scared to appreach the garden. The downsides however are that it is tricky to figure out the most effective angle setting and it is annoying that it ties up a garden hose permanently (this is even more annoying if you don't have a garden hose outlet close by)."

It Works, But . . .

Date:August 9, 2008
"It works but it's too easy for a thieve steal it. I had 2 of them but the one that was visible from the street was stolen. So if you do buy one, don't use it in the front yard. Product needs to be redesigned to make it harder for thieves to run off with it.
I find it's very effective at preventing my neighbor's dog from depositing steaming piles of you know what, BUT the 1200 sq ft rating is far too generous."
