Product not effective at all By Bill

Squirrels were eating our flowers on our patio. Bot this product (Expensive) and sprayed liberally around pots . One day later squirrels were back. Sprayed product even heavier at least 6 times with no effect. Very dissatisfied.

Response From Havahart®
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for your feedback. This product is a conditioning agent and not an instant repellent. It works over time and multiple exposures to the product to teach animals to stay away from the treated area. Each encounter with the product will irritate the animals nose, mouth, and paws, so it may take several encounters with the treated area for animals to learn to stay away. Please contact us at 855-767-4264 for assistance, we're happy to help!

Terrible product. Doesn’t work at all! By Sue
Do NOT waste your money on this!!! Have problems with squirrels, chipmunks and raccoons. Bought 2 bottles of this. Sprayed all around my deck where l have several bird feeders. It hasn’t rained here since I used the spray. First day couldn’t keep chipmunks away. That night the raccoon came back and totally ate everything out there. Next day squirrels came back. Brought all my feeders in that night. Today can’t keep the squirrels away. Went out and sprayed again. If animals come back I WILL be returning product for a FULL refund!!!

Didn’t work at all By Tim
Did not work at all. I purchased to keep Squirrels away from my bird feeders and dogs out of my yard. I sprayed this product generously and it did absolutely nothing. It may as well have been water.

squirrels digging in plant pots and eating seed from bird feeder. By Chuck
Bought for squirrels digging in my wife freshly planted potted plants/flowers. Also used on my cylindrical bird feeder (mix seed) which the squirrels eat out the sunflower seeds and throw the rest on the ground. I soaked the bird feeder. Plants helped. Bird feeder did not phase the squirrels.
