Havahart® Introduces its new 5 lb Value Size of Critter Ridder® Animal Repelling Granules

NEWS RELEASE - For Immediate Release

LITITZ, Pa., February 13, 2008 -- Havahart®, the leader in caring control for pets and wildlife, is expanding its Havahart® Critter Ridder® line by introducing an economical version of the best selling animal repellent—a new 5 lb Critter Ridder® granular shaker canister.

Launched in 2004, Critter Ridder® has quickly become the number one solution for homeowners in their battle against nuisance animal control.

OMRI listed® and compliant for use in organic gardening, Critter Ridder® repels skunks, groundhogs, squirrels, raccoons, dogs and cats with just one product. Critter Ridder® formulas are approved for use indoors (granular product) and outdoors (liquid and granular products.) Created with the consumer in mind, the new 5 lb. shaker canister features a comfort grip handle and an adjustable shaker spout.

"With our product innovations, Havahart®, offers more ways for consumers to protect their yards against animal damage," said Barry Wood, Vice President Havahart® Marketing. "Additionally, because Critter Ridder® repels six common nuisance animals with just one formula, retailers may consolidate their repellent offerings."

Havahart® Critter Ridder® not only prevents animals from ruining valuable landscape, but can also be used to repel animals from garages, sheds, attics, basements, and storage areas that often attract unwanted pests.

While competitive animal repellents last less than one week, one application of Critter Ridder® lasts up to 30 days—less frequent application by the homeowner, increases the product’s value. It uses a unique patented pepper-based formula, with oil of black pepper, piperine and capsaicin as the active ingredients.
