Review RateIt worked for deer
This spring I went out into my rose garden to fine every bud gone. Our neighborhood deer had been through. It looked like someone had cut off all the bushes tops evenly with a hedge trimmer. I ordered the Nitro-Plus & sprayed it on the bushes. I now have roses blooming. It really worked!
Review RateR.I.P. off
Critter Ridder is a colossal rip off !! Completely ineffective !! Huge waste of time and money !!Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
For the best results, we recommend applying the product in an area where the animals are forced to come in contact with it. Upon contact, it will immediately irritate their sense of smell and taste. The intense irritation sensation is enough to teach them to stay away from the area the product was applied after several unpleasant visits. We recommend allowing a few weeks for the animal to be repelled

Review RateBack where I started
It was very pungent for the first 2 hours, then the true test came along and the dog walkers stopped to have their pets continue to urinate on my almost dead box woods. This behavior comes with a very big price tag.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
This product is not an immediate deterrent. It works by irritating the dogs sense of smell and taste. Through multiple exposures to the product, the dogs will be conditioned to stay away from the area. We recommend allowing a few weeks for the product to be effective.

Review RateNOT a good purchase
I was really excited about getting this product but when I did and used it the animals just licked it as if it were candy and didn't deter any of them darn it.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Upon contact, it will immediately irritate the animal's sense of smell and taste. The intense irritation sensation is enough to teach them to stay away from the area where the product was applied.

Review RateGreat product
I have used the Critter Ridder product before. It always gets rid of the squirrels for three or four months. The hose attachment bottle is very convenient. Thanks for the product availability. Tom H
Review RateI like the product but.....
I really Like the product, been using it for three years....but the application is not very reliable at times. It seems that sometimes it works and other times the product isn’t siphoning through. I think because the product has a thick consistency. But overall I will still buy because it works
Review RateWould like a credit for $19.99 for Home Depot.
Waste of money ($19.99). Used this product for more than two weeks. Trying to control squirrels from chewing on my deck and plastic railings and my plastic trash can lid. I bought this at Home Depot and I thought it would work.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. This product is a conditioning agent, which means that it trains the animal to stay away from the treated area over a period of time. It works by irritating their mouths and paws and conditions them to stay away through multiple exposures to the product over several days or weeks.
This product is covered under a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. For additional assistance, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).
Review RateDoes Not Work.
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.

Review Ratewaste of money
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 wasteResponse 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.
