This conditions potentially destructive critters to avoid your property, keeping your gardens, ponds and home safe.Multiple Settings Offer Flexibility To ensure you get exactly the protection you want, the Critter Ridder® Motion-Activated Repellent has 4 available setting on the sensitivity dial, ranging from least to most sensitive. In addition, the sprinkler head features a distance dial so you can adjust the range of the spray – up to 100 feet (depending on conditions).

Simply turn the sensitivity knob to the “Sprinkler” setting to enable a continuous spray. Once the area has sufficient water, use the knob to turn the unit off or revert to a motion setting.A Safer Alternative to Traditional Chemical Repellents This motion-activated repellent deters animals using only water (just 2 to 3 cups per spray!), making it environmentally friendly and great for your lawn. Not only is a water sprinkler repellent safer than applying chemicals, but it’s also more efficient and economical as there is no need for continuous reapplication.Critter Ridder® Motion-Activated Repellent Product Details Do you want to know more helpful details about the Motion-Activated Animal Repellent?
