Don't waste your money By Nj

I bought this with the advice from a home depot rep who said it will definitely work. Sad to say the racoon who was pulling up my freshly laid looked me straight in the eye and continued about his business. The smell definitely did not deter him.

Thank you for sharing this experience. This product is not an instant repellent. The product works as a conditioning agent to repel animals over multiple exposures to the treated area. This product is backed by a 30 day return policy. Please email us directly at with any questions.

Critter Ridder works as advertised. By jim 2928

We had a problem with squirrels and chipmunks eating our flowers in containers. The chipmunks would even dig and destroy what we had growing. I sprinkled Crittter Ridder on the ground around the containers and even in the containers. They would not cross where I used the Critter Ridder. This is a great product and I have even noticed fewer rabbits in the yard.
