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.

NO IT DID NOT DO THE JOB. SQUIRRELS ARE STILL IN MY SHED. NOTHING I HAVE TRIED WORKS. A WAST OF MONEY.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHave not had time to see final results
The product appears to work in the area where is spread it. Problem it did no cover enough area for the cost of five pounds and shipping cost. I am continuing to monitor the area
Review RateIneffective and expensive.
Raccoons, opossums and woodchucks are eating all my tomatoes before they are ripe. I used all 5 lbs. of this product to surround the plants. It seemed to have no effect whatsoever.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not experience the desired results.
Through multiple exposures to the product, animals are conditioned to stay away from the area because of the unpleasant taste and scent. The results are not usually instantaneous, although a decrease in activity should be seen within a few weeks.

Review Ratewould try again
product worked o.k. probably slowed the damage by the squirrels
Review RateI would get it again.
I tried it and it’s still working. No problems
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.

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.
