Does Not Work. By lhbrackett

This product is completely useless. It does NOT repel or deter any animal or bird.

Response From Havahart®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. Our Critter Ridder® products are conditioning agents that will take a few days or weeks to repel an animal from the area.

When an animal has repeated exposure to the product, they will learn to associate the unpleasant taste, smell, and feel of the product with the treated area and begin to stay away. This is not considered an instant repellent.

For more information on our products, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.

waste of money By Glo

Did absolutely nothing. Cat still came into yard and day after I sprayed. I sprayed several days after the grass was mowed so I knew it would be in place. T36 hrs after I sprayed the armadillo was digging in the yard! A big waste of $59 hose sprayer works great but product is a waste

Response From Havahart®
Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize that the desired results were not seen.  
Critter Ridder® works as a conditioning agent that trains animals to stay away from the treated area over a period of time. It does not offer instant results and requires multiple exposures to the product for it to be effective. We recommend keeping the product down for a few weeks to allow time for the animals to be conditioned to stay away.
Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions. Our products are covered by a 30-day return policy and a one-year warranty against damages.

Been putting it on the sidewalk in Weehawken a busy town just across the river from Manhattan. You can see the dog noses go up when they hit my sidewalk. I spray it on the neighbors too keep a larger area CLEAN from the rich people who come here to save money from NYC and enjoy a better neighborhood, which evidently does not include cleaning up after they're dogs.

Doesn't work for dogs. Now Looking elsewhere. By Hhhh

Need to use older formula, new formula actually doesn't work with dogs. Dogs ignore the new formula. I wish I was informed of the new formula as I wouldn't have wasted my time, gas and money buying two bottles of useless product. Please market old formula under a different label.

Response From Havahart®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Havahart® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable products. We regret to hear that what was received did not meet these expectations. Critter Ridder® with NitroPlus™ (model 3147) has been tested to effectively repel armadillos, birds, cats, chipmunks, deer, dogs, groundhogs, rabbits, raccoons, shrews, skunks, squirrels, moles, porcupines, and voles. It includes a restorative plant fertilizer that naturally promotes beautiful plants. As with the original formula, it is a conditioning agent that repels by taste, smell, and touch through multiple exposures to the product. We recommend keeping the product down for a few weeks to allow time for the animal to be repelled. Our original formula of Critter Ridder® (model 3145) can be found at many local retailers and on our website here: . Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with additional questions.

No problems. By Tony219
`Have used this deer repellent before and found it superior to other brands and formulas, but the local stores where I purchased it previously no longer carry Critter Ridder. I found it very easy to obtain from and it arrived a day earlier than projected

Application By TPC1
Recently purchase Critter Ridder and applied it just a few days ago to stop a skunk, that has been walking by the house for quite a while. Hopefully it will be stopped in this habit. The product is easy to apply and has a very pleasant smell. The one thing I would suggest is the application. I find that if the bottle was a bit translucent, one could tell if the solution was being mixed with the water proportionately in order to effect the best possible effectiveness.

Q.Can the critter ridder spray be shipped to Hagerstown IN and how many days to get here with regular shipping?

This product is not able to be shipped to IN, NM, PR, or SD as it is not registered for use in these states or territories.

Q.Will this product repel foxes?

No, this will repel armadillos, birds, cats, chipmunks, deer, dogs, groundhogs, moles, porcupines, rabbits, raccoons, shrews, skunks, squirrels, and voles.

Q.I want to deter chipmunks...I have a pet dog, who is having ACL(knee) surgery, and since i have limited her activity, I am overrun with chipmunks, more than ever. I don't want her to chase them, but I don't want to 'deter her'. Is there anything you can recommend?

The repellents that we offer for squirrels also act as a repellent to dogs, but we do also offer electronic sprinkler repellents that are motion-sensitive and may be set when the dog is not outside.
