Review RateWaste of money
Worked great the first time we sprayed it around outside, has never worked again when we reapplied three weeks later or any time after that. Waste of money.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
This product should be applied during mild, dry weather conditions with low humidity, with 3 to 5 full trigger sprays used per square foot. Critter Ridder® is a conditioning agent that trains the animals to stay away from the treated area over a period of time through multiple exposures to the product. It repels by taste, smell, and touch. We recommend keeping the product down for a few weeks to allow time for the animal to be repelled.

Review RateWaste of Money
I bought this to keep my puppy from pooping on a certain spot in the yard. Did not deter him at all. he went back there twice! No hesitations. I caught him the 3rd time, so he didn't actually poop, but he was going to. the dogs walk right through it. I'm sure the stray cat doesn't mind it either, although I have not checked that spot yet. Complete waste of $14 and the gas it took to drive to pick it up. I should have went with a different company.Response From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this situation and appreciate your feedback. Critter Ridder® is a conditioning agent that works by irritating their paws and mouth and in turn trains the dog to stay away from the area over time. This is not an instantaneous solution and may take several weeks to be effective. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for further assistance.
Review RateNo surprisesProduct came on time and was just what i expected. It worked.
Review RateI wanted a spray to keep feral cats away.
I followed the directions. I wanted to stop feral cats from climbing my screen room and tearing it. I sprayed all around it. The cats actually laid down on top of the ground where I sprayed. This did not work at all and I am very disappointed.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. We apologize that the desired results were not seen when using this product. It is important to understand that this product is a conditioning agent and not considered an instant repellent. When animals visit the treated area, the product will begin to irritate their mouths and paws. Over multiple exposures to the product over a period of time, they will learn to associate this unpleasant feeling with the treated area and learn to stay away.
Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.
Review RateGood Product Bad Applicator
This is second bottle of ready to use. First bottle I returned unused because applicator was plugged before use. Second bottle I bought at a different store. Worked first time and was plugged when I quit. Today I tried to fix applicator but no luck. Finally put in one gallon sprayer and used it that way.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
When using this product, it is very important to shake the bottle vigorously to ensure that it is well blended and no sediment remains on the bottom of the bottle. We apologize for this experience and have shared this feedback with our Product Manager.

Did not work with these ground hogs in my back yard. They seemed to be telling me, "Go and buy some more and see if that will work".
