Repel with Smell and Taste - Dual Action Formula

Critter Ridder® is a patented blend of ingredients derived from three different hot peppers that immediately irritates an animal's senses of smell and taste upon encounter. This overwhelming sensation sends critters running, and after a couple of unwelcome visits, the animals associate it with your yard and learn to stay away. Critter Ridder®’s unique formula delivers two times the layers of protection of other animal repellents, and it’s proven to work.

One Application Lasts Up to 30 Days

Critter Ridder® delivers a longer-lasting defense. Just one application of this unique rain-resistant animal repellent provides up to 30 days of protection.

A Little Bit of Critter Ridder® Goes a Long Way

Sprinkle Critter Ridder® granules along garden pathways or around the perimeter of your flowerbeds to deter pests from entering. Or, for a more targeted approach, spot-treat areas of grass, flowerpots and more with just a sprinkle. For multi-surface protection like garbage cans, bird feeders and other hard surfaces, Critter Ridder® Ready-To-Use is an ideal solution.

Organic Gardeners Apply with Confidence

An alternative to synthetic chemical repellents, Critter Ridder® gives you confidence that you are using the best formula for your home and for the animals you are repelling. Furthermore, Critter Ridder® is OMRI listed®, and USDA approved for use in organic gardening, so it is perfect for even the most eco-friendly gardening and landscaping regimens.

completely ineffective By Natasha

I have used this product in the past several years and it worked like magic with the first application against dogs and squirrels. Bought two new containers yesterday and applied some. Noticed right away I wasn't getting the irritation and smell that I have always gotten (through a dust mask) with previous applications. This morning it is obvious the squirrels are back. It would seem either the ingredients have been changed or this batch has a problem.

It Does Not Work At All By Trifector

It does not work at all. I read the instructions and applied as such. Dogs smelled it and had zero effect. Zero. Subsequently, I tried applying it thicker, no effect. Zero. Then, tried it lighter and no effect. Zero. It seems it helped the grass grow.

Didn't work for me By UnHappyCamper

I sprinkled the product around the front of my home and porch. Later that day and the following, we had more critters than ever. Even a chicken entered our yard and got on the porch. I haven't seen a chicken around here in 20 years.

Several encounters may be needed for animals to associate the unpleasant scent and taste of this product with the treated area and learn to stay away. We cannot recommend this product to repel chickens. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions. We are happy to help!

Doesn't work on squirrels By jym

May work with some animals but not our tree squirrels. They sit in a fork of our large tree so I thought that would be a great place to put some of the Critter Ridder. Well...15 minutes later both of them were standing on the stuff and hopped down the tree to the bark with the Critter Ridder, dug a while then proceeded to the yard (more Critter Ridder) and dug some more. When I went out to scare them. They ran up to the crook in the tree. Sitting on the Critter Ridder granules.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! This product works by irritating the squirrels sense of smell and taste. After several exposures to the product, they start to associate the repellent with the area it was applied and learn to stay away from the treated area. We recommend allowing a few weeks for total control.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Works Great By Scott

It works! I had my doubts, but I haven't seen a cat since I lightly sprinkled this stuff in my yard. Even after two rains. And my dog-walking neighbor's dogs avoid the yard also. Nice!!!

Critter bringer By Pete

Critter bringer should be called, this stuff does not do anything. Instead of getting rid of critters, there is more in my backyard.

Awful, used as directed the first day and it didn't work, used a whole container for a 2'X3' area and they pooped there that same night again.

won't stop coons By larryh

I bought this stuff because I have a coon problem. Coons even get into my hummingbird feeders for the nectar. I sprinked this critter ridder all around the porch where the coon would stand while reaching out. One night I woke up to noise and there was the coon, splayed out across the long pole getting the feeder. Critter Ridder was all around and it didn't faze it. I ended up having to bring the feeders in at dusk.

As a conditioning agent, Critter Ridder® repels by taste, smell, and touch through multiple exposures over time.

Don\'t Waste Your Money! By Skunked

I bought Critter Ridder to repel 6 skunks that have set up housekeeping in our yard. At dusk, the skunk family came out of their burrow and headed under the fence to do whatever skunks do all night. I then applied Critter Ridder exactly as the instructions recommended at the hole under the fence as well as putting it down at the entrance to their burrow under our shed. Then I turned on the camera. The next day, in reviewing the video, I saw they came bounding under the fence and headed straight for the burrow. They paused briefly, seemed to sniff at the stuff and just kept right on going into the burrow. So much for this stuff. I'm out $30.00 and still have skunks. On the upside, I did sprinkle some of this along the border of our front lawn and the neighbor's dog has decided to go find another yard to use as a toilet.

It works (so far)!!! By mickeyg
I had seen 2 skunks come out of a hole under our rear concrete patio at night a week ago. I bought Critter Ridder 5 days ago and partially filled the hole including some sticks planted vertically to be able to tell if the skunks entered or left the hole. I sprinkled a pile of Critter Ridder across to front of the hole and around the immediate area. The first morning the sticks were knocked over indicating that an animal(s) had left the hole. I replanted the sticks with a 1/2 inch deep pile of Critter Ridder across the front of the hole. Nothing has entered or left the hole since the first morning. I think and hope the skunks are gone for good.

Q&A
Q.I am pregnant and am wondering if it is safe for me to use this product? We are having a major squirrel issue that keeps chewing through our porch wood beams, even after removing the nest and young. I am the one that is home during the day to apply the product but am wondering if it is safe for pregnant women to use? ( of course I am using gloves when using product but wanted to check regardless)
A.

There has been no specific testing on whether Critter Ridder® has any effect on pregnant women. The active ingredients are oil of black pepper, piperine, and capsaicin.

Q.Is there a preferred temperature outdoors for this to work? Right now it is about 40 degrees F and I want to train our puppy to stay out of the garden.
A.

We do not have a recommended minimum temperature for using this product.

Q.We have several irresponsible dog owners on our block, and I have two small children who like to play in our yard. Needless to say it's not fun when they get dog waste all over themselves or their toys. Also, being in Florida, we water our lawn 3 days a week and can get some good rain in certain seasons. Will this product work for us? With that much watering will it be ineffective? Thank you,
A.

This product is scent and taste-based, and may need to be reapplied after heavy rains or lawn waterings.
