Critter Ridder® is Proven to Repel:


How Critter Ridder® Works

Critter Ridder® animal repellent uses a powerful, patented blend of ingredients derived from hot peppers, which work together to irritate nuisance animals when they smell, or taste a treated area. The intense burning sensation that Critter Ridder® delivers will turn animals away, and after a few unpleasant visits, they will be unwilling to return.

How to Use Critter Ridder®

For best results, use both Critter Ridder® Spray and Critter Ridder® Granules, which together deliver highly effective dual pest protection.


Cirtter Ridder: Spray

Spray Critter Ridder® Ready-to-Use Liquid for multi-surface protection. Apply the peppery spray directly onto trash, soil, plants and other areas where you see signs of animal activity.



Critter Ridder: Sprinkle

Sprinkle Critter Ridder® Granules in and around an area you want to protect. By sprinkling the granules along flowerbeds or around vegetable gardens, you can create an effective perimeter to deter pests from entering these areas.
