This unit is ideal for repelling a variety of animals including raccoons, opossums, cats, dogs, and other animals with potentially destructive behaviors. In addition to providing an animal-repelling solution, the Critter Ridder Motion-Activated Repellent can also be used as a sprinkler unit for watering lawns or gardens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this motion Activated Repellent a few weeks ago,I had my doubts about it because it is mostly plastic but to my surprise it works great and so far has kept the deer from destroying everything,even got me a couple of times,the motion distance is quite far,for deer I think the trick is to keep moving it around so they don’t get used to it and don’t place it too close to a tree or bush that will activate it in the wind and deplete the batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a cat person? You'll love this! Easy to set up. Neighbourhood cat kept defecating on our front yard. And skunk keeps startling us when when were sitting on front porch. Installed in the front flower bed and aimed it across the yard where the cat would emerge from between the houses. So far, so good. No sightings! I have the motion sensitivity set on 1 (the lowest?) and it's really sensitive. A person walking up the neighbours driveway (25ft away) will trigger it. As will the occasional car on the street. It will go off no-stop if you don't get it set up just right. I've actually pointed it downwards a bit to compensate. Yes, it will go off in the middle of the night. I find the sound of the sprinkler firing into action for a few seconds quite satisfying, knowing that it's doing it's job. ONE PROBLEM: Cats are smart!!! They figured it out and now just walk behind the sprinkler! Will likely need to keep moving the unit to catch them off guard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Garbage Nothing about this poorly constructed gadget works. goes off randomly, batteries die quick, leaks, uproots itself. If this was $12.99 I might give it 2 stars but it’s also terribly overpriced. very dissapointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance of product and support We have purchased 4 and returned 3 at Home Depot, and purchased 2 at another store and returned 1. As others reported, light would come on, but no water jet, and in some instances unreliable sensing of presence as well. Called head office in US, and was advised that the units that we were trying were 'obsolete' models 5266 and 5270. That was their explanation for lack of function. Apparently there is a newer model (think 5277?) that is supposed to be in the stores. No real interest in troubleshooting these new 'obsolete' units still being sold. Specifications say that it will operate at stanard city water pressures, 60 to 80 psi. Noticed that during removal of hose, water pressure reduced due to process of disconnecting, unit would spray water. Purchased a water pressure guage and and pressure reducing valve, found that in most cases maximum operating pressure had to be reduced to something below 40 psi for any kind of reliability in function of model 5270. Out of 6 units tried we have 2 of the oldest model (5266) working somewhat reliably after installing an adjustable water pressure reducing valve to reduce the water pressure of around 50 psi.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought 2 of these and they both don't work. The led comes on but no water comes out. I called Havahart CS and they had no answers other than I should return it. The problem is that they don't have any on stock that's not a 5 HR drive from me. I guess their going back and I will be buying another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just does not work as advertised We bought this sprinkler in hopes that it would be a more humane and less stressful way to deter neighbourhood cats from using our yard as a litter box. We did the research, read the reviews and decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. We had to get a better hose to hook it up to as our standard rubber hose would not stay in the on-device hose connector. We also did not know that it takes a 9-volt battery (who uses a 9-v battery these days?). We read the manual and assembled the unit. It was very difficult to insert into our lawn and we ended up digging a small hole just to insert the spike. We tried various sensitivities and angles to get the device to spray and initially, it seemed to work. However, the cats just learned to defecate behind the sprinkler. Then the device stopped working altogether. What a colossal waste of time and money. We returned it to the store today for a refund, no questions asked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with this product So I basically bought this item because my friend had purchased one couple years back when he had a pest problem destroying his new grass, I went to purchase the same name brand but the box and item looked completely diff, but he said it was good quality, well when I opened the box I could already tell it looked a bit diff, so I assume this is the new and improved version, I thought wrong!! I followed instruction the instruction, did my first test and it only worked once, after that it would just drip out of the holes onto the device itself. And stop working all together, this was a brand new! Unit out of box and failed after one spray. Return next day, not even your 2 yr warranty is worth the headache to keep repairing/replacing this unit

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy quality. It sprayed one time before it stopped working.... Lousy quality. It sprayed one time before it stopped working. I have used this brand before and had great results. The new design is cheap and doesn't work. I do not recommend this product.
