Get Superior Protection with Two Modes of Defense
Protect your home from animals two ways - with a liquid and solid Critter Ridder® animal repellent. Each contains a patented blend of powerful ingredients, which is proven to repel critters by irritating their senses of smell and taste. The liquid protects surfaces like garbage cans and sheds, while the solid creates a barrier when sprinkled around your lawn or mulch. Apply both together for a full-blown defense against problem critters. Just a couple of unwelcome visits to your yard, and the repeat discomfort brought upon by Critter Ridder® will make them unwilling to return.
Ready-to-Use Spray Treats Surfaces like Plants, Bird Feeders and More
Simply spray Critter Ridder® directly onto trash, soil, plants or other areas on your property where you see signs of animal activity. The liquid adheres to surfaces, and lasts for up to 30 days. You can even use Critter Ridder® on bird feeders for effective protection from squirrels without bothering birds.

Review RateThe product works Ok but the STRENGTH of the ingredients needs increasing.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 RepresentativeWe 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.

Review RateHavahart Traps & Critter RidderTo 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!
Review RateC ritter reidersSo far it is helped getting rid of squirrels.
Review RateCanine deterrentI 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.

Review RateHavahart - Critter Ridder Dual Area protection bun
I bought these 2 items approximately 30 days ago. I am very disappointed with the results. The granules do not work and the spray, after a thorough application, lasted less than a week.Response From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for the feedback. We apologize for this experience and would like to learn more about what occurred. This product is a conditioning agent and will take several visits for the animal to be repelled. It trains them to stay away through multiple exposures to the product over several days or weeks.

Review RateSpray container
After spraying almost a full bottle around my shed over over a two week period, I still have a critter returning. I had to hold the spray bottle in different positions to get the stuff to come out. The sprayer worked well every few sprays and with about an eighth of the container left it quit altogether. I was told this was a good product and was willing to spend the money. Not happy with the container or the results.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate this feedback regarding the sprayer for this product and it has been shared with the Product Manager. Critter Ridder® is a conditioning agent that works through repeated exposure. We recommend applying in a five-foot wide perimeter for a border protection, using 3 - 5 full trigger sprays per square foot.

Review RatePesky CrittersI bought the Critter products to gain peace of mind and I'm in heaven! Those pesky critters are no longer feasting on my avocado tree!
Review RateGreat ProductThis product is working as promised.
Review RateDispleasedI saturated the ground with the pellet form and sprayed my bushes and fences with your spray. Within a weeks time the squirrels were back. All I can figure is the dew from the morning diluted your product. During that period we had no rain to speak of. For the cost of the product and the results I was very displeased.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Jimmy,
We appreciate the time taken to share this valuable feedback and apologize that the desired long term results were not as expected. Critter Ridder® is a conditioning agent that teaches animals to stay away from the treated area. When you first begin to use this product, it's not out of the ordinary that you may have to reapply to keep the active agents at heightened levels while the animals learn to avoid the area. When you first apply, the scent and taste triggers are at their highest levels. The need to reapply should reduce over time.
Please keep in mind that our products are backed by a 30 day customer satisfaction guarantee. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.
