Effectively Repels:


Havahart® Spray Away® Our Most Compact and Discreet Motion-Activated Sprinkler Repellent

Defend your garden from passing deer, birds, rabbits and more with Havahart® Spray Away - an efficient electronic repelling device that effectively frightens critters away with startling bursts of water. The newest generation of Havahart® Spray Away motion-activated sprinkler repellents is the smallest and easiest to operate. But don’t let its small size fool you - this compact device provides maximum protection against nuisance critters, sensing up to 1,750 sq ft.


Patrols the Animals in Your Yard 24/7

Spray Away’s full-size infrared sensor seeks animal movement day and night, constantly patrolling your yard for intruders. Each and every time that it detects a passing animal, Spray Away releases a startling surge of water to scare it away. This persistent pattern conditions potentially destructive critters to avoid your property, keeping your gardens, ponds and home safe.


Effortless, Simplified Sight Settings

Rather than constantly fine-tuning your device to one of many different sight settings, with Havahart® Spray Away you only need to choose one of 4 settings: High, Medium, Low and Off. Use these settings to determine how far and what size critters you want your Spray Away to see.


Quick and Easy Setup

Forget all the finicky bells and whistles. Havahart® has simplified this Spray Away and streamlined the setup to minimize the time and effort it takes to get started with using your device. In addition to simplified sight settings, Spray Away also comes with a pre-installed sprinkler head and a new and improved leak-free hose connections - located at the bottom of the device for easier installation. As a bonus, two hose connections allow you to attach multiple units using just one water source.


Smart LED Indicator Light Eliminates Any Guesswork

An LED indicator light illuminates every time Spray Away detects movement, allowing you to test the detection distance without turning on your water source (and getting wet). What’s more, it tells you from a distance when your battery is running low, so you never have to guess when it’s time to replace it.


A Low-Maintenance, Eco-Friendly Alternative

Using only 2 to 3 cups of water per spray, the Havahart® Spray Away offers a pest repelling solution that is not ecologically wasteful and helps hydrate your lawn in the process. It incorporates no harmful chemicals and is entirely friendly to the environment.


2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty

As the recognized brand leader in nuisance animal control, Havahart® is committed to making customer satisfaction our number one priority. Your Spray Away motion activated sprinkler unit is covered under a 2-year warranty. If for any reason you have any issues with your Spray Away during that time, please call us at (855) 542-8242 so we can assist you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Redesign! We have used the previous version of this "Deer Sprinkler" for several years - it has proved to be the only way for me to have a nice garden with all the deer that trek through eating everything in sight! We did have recurring "issues" with the previous version though - had them replaced under warrantee a few times and learned to fix other issues ourselves (like when the plastic sprinkler head would break - we just replaced it with another) This new design of the sprayer itself , sensor settings and hose attachment placement especially so far seem to be so much better and hopefully therefore less opportunity for malfunction. Time will tell but so far I am thrilled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea Bought this last week and still getting things adjusted. It is a great idea -- and I may be pushing the design for shorter distances, but everything works as advertised. Please note, you can modify this with other parts using the original motion detector and hose connections. Very happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Havahart Spray Away This is a great idea that works well. Set up was so easy. Just connect to a hose and set in the ground. Flexible options for angle and best hit to problem animals was easy, too. Only using a short time, so hopeful it works. Also great that it works day or night, when you're home or when you're out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living with deer I live on a ravine with many deer and other types of wildlife frequenting my yard. While I love the wildlife I also love to garden. These motion detector sprinklers have protected my gardens and allowed me to enjoy the wildlife and my flowers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! I bought this to keep osprey from building nests on my boat while on the lift. I tried every contraption made to keep them off, but nothing worked. I thought I'd try one of these on a whim and it works like a charm! No more osprey nests, eggs, branches, feathers, dead fish, sand, or slop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cats and squirrels I bought this motion activated sprinkler to stop the neighborhood cats and squirrels from getting in my front yard. After installing two of them, I have not seen any animals out front. They work great. Thank you Havahart!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great!!! Keeps the deer away from my wife's bushes and flowers at nite. They need add a photocell so it doesn't work in the day time or at least a shutoff switch. Otherwise it works like a charm!

can I run sprinkler to water garden and then set up for night deer

Asked by: t8trz
This product is designed to deter animals such as deer, however it will only activate when it detects movement and is not recommended to water the garden. If you are interested in a dual purpose item that will work for both needs, we recommend our Havahart® Spray Away Hydro-Remote Animal Repellent Sprinkler. http://www.havahart.com/spray-away-hydro-remote-animal-repellent-sprinkler-5267

Is distance setting sufficiently accurate to avoid spraying innocent pedestrians?

Asked by: Patsy
The location, as well as the sensitivity setting used will both influence when the unit is activated.

I specifically do want birds in my yard but not the cats that try to eat the birds. Do you have a product that would be perfect for this problem? 

Asked by: dischlies
Our Critter Ridder® Animal Repellent Granular is a great option for this use. The product works to repel animals such as cats by smell, taste and touch, but does not repel birds, as they have no sense of smell or taste. http://www.havahart.com/critter-ridder-granular-animal-repellent

Does this activate during both day and night? It would be nice if there was a light sensor that activated the unit at dusk or night only.  I don't want to hose down the mailman...

Asked by: Tripscout
This product detects both heat and motion.

Can this be attached to in ground irrigation system, and will it work on geese?

Asked by: Claire
This product works well to deter animals such as geese. It is designed to be attached to a hose, rather than an irrigation system.
