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 RateIneffective and expensive
Did it work against chipmunks? Not at all. I used so much of this product...10 pounds across about 150 square feet with repeat applications after rain, the chipmunks kept coming and digging and they would stand in it. I have tried mothballs, bobcat urine, cayenne pepper and this product, nothing works, I live near the woods and traps are a foolish idea.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are very sorry to hear the expected results were not seen! How long was the product applied? It may take several weeks for the chipmunks to be repelled. The product works by irritating their sense of smell and taste; through multiple exposures to the product, they start to associate the product with the area it was applied in and then learn to stay away.
We hope this information was helpful! 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.
Review RateT Shirt
Product was well priced, prompt delivery and keeps squirrels from bothering my bird feeder. Love that I now have a safe location to keep my feeder. Non fatal product, so does not bother me to use it.
Review RateA big help in keeping my potted plants "safe"
Critter Ridder has done a good job of keeping my dogs from digging in my potted plants on my patio. I haven't used it elsewhere in my garden yet.
Not very effective in cold and wet weather. A lot of product is needed for a small area. Pets seem to ignore it if they havery used treated area in past.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. This product should be applied on sunny, dry days. Animals learn to stay away from treated areas through multiple exposures to the product. It works by irritating their nose and mouth and conditions them to stay away from the treated area. We recommend allowing a few weeks for the animals to be repelled.

Review RateNot happy , out $37.08
Save your money as this did not even slow the cats from using my gravel area as a litter box.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. This product is a conditioning agent, which means it trains the animal to stay away from the treated area through multiple exposures to the product over a period of time. It is not an instantaneous solution and may take several weeks to be effective.

Review RateDoes not work
Do not waste your money. Spread it extra thick and it did not stop raccoons it kitty. Put out a second entire bottle...same thing. Worthless. Get a trap.Response From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share these comments and we apologize that the desired results were not seen.
This product is a conditioning agent that uses unpleasant tastes and smells to deter animals from entering the treated area. While it may not provide instantaneous results, a decrease in activity should be seen within a few weeks.

Review RateWorks, but not for long
Only temporary, wish it lasted longer. Got this product to deter my neighbors dog from going on my lawn (they do not clean up after it). It seems to work, as the dog becomes uninterested in his favorite spots, but the product has to be re-applied if we get heavy rain and every 30 days or so. Also, it's useless in the winter months. If only there was a way to punish the owner and not the dog, I'd buy that product for any price.
Review RateDoesn't work here
Tried this 3 pack deal. Raccoons & skunks kept stealing / biting all my tomatoes as they ripened. Got'em on film sitting in an obvious deposit of this stuff. Must have got a bad batch, or suburban varments just don't scare so easy.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about 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. For best results with a vegetable garden, a wider perimeter band of repellent may be needed. Keep in mind, if an animal is habitually coming to a food source, it may take longer to drive them away.
