It doesn't work By italia

I am sorry that the product didn't work. I wish it would. The neighbor's dog approaches the place where I spread the repellent, without any problem, absolutely undisturbed. Two bottles! No rain or wind. I have to look for more effective options.

Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. With each encounter the dog has with the product, its sense of taste and smell will be irritated. After multiple encounters with the product over several days or weeks, the dog will learn to associate this unpleasant feeling of the product with the treated area and learn to stay away.

We apologize that the desired results were not seen as quickly as anticipated. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.

Disappointed By BACB

Feel like I wasted my money. Applied a large container of granular to my front lawn and garden. The following day, while sitting at my computer working, I spied not 1 but 3 people letting their dogs poop and urinate on the area I had treated the day before. Didn't seem to bother or deter the dogs.

Good initial result By Russell

Rabbit(s) under my deck and I had this in the garage. Sprinkled on the deck and as I was sweeping in the cracks the rabbit came flying out. Hope it will stay out, it was bothering my dog a bit.

Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Russell,

This product is a repellent for both cats and dogs. If the dog is going into the treated area, it may prefer to stay away due to the smell and taste of the product.

The product works Ok but the STRENGTH of the ingredients needs increasing. By pmk
This is my first time using Critter Ridder Spray. It seem to work ok. However, I found I had to immediately spray my lawn after the grass was cut or I had dogs pooping on my lawn again. It is very frustrating because they tend to poop right where the path to my car is. Will the spray ever absorb into the soil, so when the grass grow, there is a little protection on the new growth before another treatment?
Response From Havahart®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and are happy to provide assistance. Our Critter Ridder® spray (model 3145) can be applied to the point of run off and directly to soil around plants for additional protection. The spray will dry where it is put, and will not be absorbed into the soil unless directly applied.

Havahart Traps & Critter Ridder By KenB
To combat a family of skunks and raccoons terrorizing my tomato gardens, I turned to Havahart lever activated traps and steered my tormentors away from their hideouts under my sheds and porch into the traps. Amazingly easy to set, these NEW traps caught the raccoons easily and with come care allowed me to carry them away to far away locals. The skunks were another issue. With a elongated hooked pole, I was able to flip the setting handle back, opening the trap, allowing the skunks to waddle away, out of my yard and into the woods. I then sprinkled the granular Critter Ridder deterrent around the access points to my yard and ever since, I've been critter free. Even the squirrels have stayed away. Great stuff. I just bought ten more pounds to use next spring. I'm a satisfied customer and will remain so. Thanks Havahart!

Canine deterrent By Eric
I purchased this kit to help with our personal dogs. They are Boxer puppies and very active. We had a bed of cannas that they would not stay out of. They were pulling the plants down, tearing up the leaves and stalks and destroying it. I put up a fence with chicken wire, but wanted something else and was looking at electric fences when I found this product. We have used both of these in various areas to deter the mischief.

So far, the granuals have not had much affect on the boys. The sniff it and don't like it. There were pulling up the sprinkler solenoid covers, so I covered one with the powder. I literally covered it so you couldn't see through the granuals. 10 minutes later it was back on my porch. Didn't stop them at all and it sure didn't burn their paws like it indicates.

The spray works. When I spray something with it, they leave it alone. The dogs were scratching at the ash pan for the charcoal grill. I sprayed that, now they don't go near it. They started digging a hole in the yard, so I sprayed the hole and the grass and they don't go near it. I sprayed all the new growth cannas this week and will do so again after the rain today. Then I will take down the fence and see what they think of that.

Overall, I give this a 4 star rating. The spray works well, the granuals, not so much. I still have a lot left and will try it again in the canna bed and see what happens.

Q.I have chipmunks all over my yard! Three acres with bird bath and feeders, piles of wood, flowers and VEGETABLES. I'm not worried about anything except my peas! Can I use the liquid Critter Ridder on my peas? What about mothballs or a mix of cayenne/tabasc/water? Please help.

Our Critter Ridder® granules and spray are not intended for use on edibile plants, such as in a vegetable garden.

Q.Hi, I'm trying to keep my cat out of my neighbour's vegetable garden, and want to know if this product is safe on edible plants. If not, is there another product you could recommend? Cheers

Since this product's ingredients are castor oil, white pepper, cinnamon oil, citronella oil, and garlic, it would be best to set this in a perimeter around the garden, but not too close that the oils will taint the vegetables.

Q.Does this deter random/neighborhood cats & dogs from urinating and pooping on my lawn?

This product acts as a conditioning agent and is designed to repel cats and dogs from a protected area through scent and taste.
