Dual Action Formula
Critter Ridder® is a blend of ingredients derived from three different hot peppers that immediately irritates an animal’s senses. These ingredients provide a dual action effect, repelling critters via smell and taste. This overwhelming and irritating sensation sends animals running. After a couple of unwelcome visits, the animals will avoid another unpleasant interaction with Critter Ridder® and learn to stay away.
One Application Lasts Up to 30 Days
Critter Ridder® delivers a longer-lasting defense. Just one application of this unique animal repellent provides up to 30 days of protection.
A Little Bit of Critter Ridder® Goes a Long Way
Open the adjustable shaker cap and sprinkle Critter Ridder® granules along garden pathways or around the perimeter of your flowerbeds to deter pests from entering. For a more targeted approach, spot-treat areas of grass, flowerpots, mulch beds and more by sprinkling a small amount of Critter Ridder®. For multi-surface protection like garbage cans, bird feeders and other hard surfaces, Critter Ridder® Ready-To-Use is an ideal solution.

Review RateDid not work
Bought to deter feral cats, I followed all the instructions but the cats used it enough more. Tried 3 times but to no avail,Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more. 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. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.
Review RateDidn't work for me
Unfortunately, the product didn't work for me. I still have rabbits and squirrels coming on my lawn. Pretty discouraging, especially this time of the year, when the squirrels are digging up holes all over to bury nuts, etc.Response From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share your feedback. This product may take several weeks to repel the animals. It's a conditioning agent that will repel them over time by irritating their mouths and paws. It is not an instantaneous solution.

Review RateWORKS FAIRLY WELLFirst time dealing with skunks digging in the ground-cover. Find that there are a very limited number of products authorized for use these days. Critter Ridder seems to work fairly well but we've found that once sprinklers are turned back on, the mix gets washed into the soil quickly and looses it's odor. In two nights the skunks are back. Trying to use this product prudently since it's expensive.
Review RateEfficiently effective
Used a small amount first day to rid of groudhogs. Two days later they were gone.

Review RateDidn't work
I bought this specifically to stop my dog from peeing on the grass. We have a small grass area so I used almost the whole bottle and shook it everywhere but it didn't even slow my dog down from going right onto the grass, smelling, and then peeing. I tried sprinkling some more the next day just around the borders, but my dog walks right on the grass as if there is nothing there. I was disappointed as its expensive for something that didn't even slightly deter my little shih-tzu. I decided to bite the bullet because of all the good reviews. I'm glad it works for so many people, not sure why it didn't even phase my dogResponse From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative
