A Unique, Wireless Solution To Destructive Deer
Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent uses a unique, patented technology that gives deer a harmless, static shock to condition them to avoid your yard and leave your landscape intact. No need for unsightly and expensive fencing solutions that compromise your landscape - the Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent works just like an electronic fence but without the wires, providing an unobtrusive, silent solution to destructive deer.
Lure Deer Away from Your Plants, and Train Them to Stay Away
This electronic solution works by taking advantage of a deer's heightened sensitivity to smell, attracting deer to the individual repelling posts with an irresistibly sweet acorn scented lure inside of an azalea-colored casing. When the curious deer contacts the post, the Electronic Deer Repellent delivers a mild static shock, startling the deer and herding the animal away from your property.
Posts are Easy to Install and Relocate, Keeping Deer on Their Toes
Proper stake placement is KEY! Posts should be positioned around deer entries, paths, and around plants they are most likely to encounter with the goal of forcing deer interaction with the unit. After deer have been conditioned to avoid certain areas of your property, the units can be moved to protect newly emerging plants or to protect new entryways. And because the batteries last up to 1 year, the product is virtually maintenance-free. Just reapply the powerful acorn scented lure weekly for best results.
Correct Just One Deer, and Repel the Entire Herd
Deer are known to travel in groups and will communicate with one another when they locate food or sense danger. In most cases, all you need is for one deer to touch the deer-repelling stake, and the entire herd will receive the message to stay away.
Harmless for Them, with Safety Features to Protect You
These electronic repellent posts are both safe for the target animal and for accidental contact. The current produced by this electronic deer repeller has a very low amperage and lasts only a few milliseconds. The voltage range for this product is approximately 300 volts, and it recharges itself slowly, so there is no possibility of a continuous shock to an individual. Finally, the lure holder, which also holds the electrodes, is colored red - which attracts deer and also gives awareness and caution to the shock area.2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty

Review Rateelectronic deer repelant
The electronic deer stakes have been working well in my yard. Last year at this time all my vegetation was chewed to the ground. I now have a full yard of greenery this year and my yard looks good.
Review RateTERRIBLE, FALSE ADVERTISING
OMG I THOUGHT THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD IDEA THAT i PURCHASED 24 OF THESE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, THEY DID NOTHING TO REPEL DEER AND I AM JUST OUT THE MONEY.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
For best results, placing the units around deer entries, paths, and around plants they are most likely to encounter will force deer interaction with the unit. After deer have been conditioned to avoid certain areas of your property, we recommend moving the units around occasionally.

Review RateNon functional
I installed them about 12 days ago and the deer come, sniff, and walk away..... I "tested" each unit with my finger and of the 9 installed, only 2 provided a "shock". I changed out batteries and re tested with same non shock event. Very unhappy.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
After assembling the units, it will take approximately 45 minutes for the spikes to fully charge. How long were the units charged before they were tested? We recommend visually inspecting the electrode wires to make sure the inside pair are not contacting the outside pair of wires. If they are touching, gently adjust them away from each other until there is a small gap between them in all areas.

Review RateDidn't work.
Unfortunately, these did nothing to scare away the deer at our house. I bought six, tested them regularly, moved them around, used them in conjunction with fishing line and various spray repellent--all to no avail. The deer were not scared. We had to the install a fence.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThey work better than anything else I have used.
I have about 40 of the Havahart electronic deer stakes. Our 1/3rd acre yard and flower garden was featured in the Wichita KS Master Gardener's annual tour last year so keeping the deer out is important. We are located next to a wildlife refuge and with no fence we have to be creative. Maybe because of our large deer population I find that every plant and every shrub I want to protected must have an electronic stake. Staking only the deer entry points does not solve the problem. I have them at entry points and wherever plants are that deer eat. They are effective but each planting bed needs 1 to 3 of the posts. Rain and lawn watering discharges them and washes off the scent. They will recharge after a rain but need new scent applied. Even without rain I re-scent at least once a week. One issue I have found and need to solve is some of the electronic stakes get water into the electronic head. The plastic weld seams or moisture wicking is causing water to get into the heads. Once wet inside some don't work again.
Review RateGreat Concept
Great concept. Bought 3 and they worked for a while. Two cracked where the plastic top meets the aluminum base. One lost ability to hold the charge. Could be that the deer broke the stick when they didn't get shocked.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHavahart dud
We have tried everything to keep the deer away. I am disappointed with reports concerning the poor design and ineffectiveness of the Havahart device. "Of the 9 electronic deer repellents I purchased, only 1 was working." "The doe backed up about 8 feet, walked around the stake and went into the orchard and started nibbling on the leaves of the trees." "Did not anticipate that rain will discharge battery fast. Our deer were not really attracted by the scent of lure." "It shocked one deer one time which I believe was an accident because the deer were not attracted to the acorn scent. After checking all of the units about 10 days later none of them would work. Very disappointing." "Half did not develop a charge and the only way to test them is touching the loop and get shocked if it is charged and nothing if not functional. Switched batteries, with no positive results in most cases. Product needs an external indicator of charge - perhaps an LED for low voltage draw illuminated when full charge is reached." Havahart responses to these posts were not encouraging.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot worth the $300 for the 3 sets
Possible a good idea, but poor design does not allow it to be effective. Of the 9 electronic deer repellents I purchased, only 1 was working. Because of poor design and/or material, the 2 halves could not be joined together. After a couple of months, the plastic end of the top half end could be joined with the bottom half because the plastic end cracked and pieces broke off. This was not because deer abuse, but the plastic would not hold up in the outside elements. Also I found it hard to check for electric current with my ohm meter.Response From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
