This Innovative Motion Activated Sprinkler Keeps Yard Pests Away

There is nothing more disheartening than putting a lot of effort into a garden only to have it viewed by squirrels, rabbits or other animals as a private buffet. Enter the Contech Electronics Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler. Not only does this protect gardens, it does so in a completely safe and humane manner. First off, installing the motion activated sprinkler is a simple matter of installing a 9 volt battery, connecting the sprinkler to your hose and driving the 17-inch spike into the ground. An adjustable sprinkler arc lets you control which area of your yard you want protected. For added coverage Scarecrow sprinklers can be linked to guard larger spaces..

The sprinkler takes it from there. Whenever it senses motion, it comes to life and lets out a burst of water. This unexpected water plus the noise and motion of the sprinkler then scare the animal away from your yard. Better yet, this model will protect up to a 1000 square foot area of your property.

Those consumers providing reviews of this motion activated sprinkler overwhelmingly appeared to like the model. Review after review said the motion detector sprinkler functioned just as it claimed. If there was one drawback, it would be that the Scarecrow motion activated sprinkler cannot distinguish animals from humans and will be activated by any movement – even the owners.

The Positives
Scarecrow sprinkler teaches pets and wildlife to avoid your yard and garden. Motion sensor sprinkler detects and sprays animals in a 1,000-square-foot area. Lightweight plastic shaft and metal sprinkler head. Adjustable sprinkler arc to cover the area you want protected. Great choice for neighborhoods where fences are prohibited.

The Negatives
Doesn’t detect small critters like squirrels unless they come within 6-8 feet. Some felt that even at it’s lowest setting the water stream is too high.

So What’s The Scoop?
Not only for garden protection, this motion sprinkler also will deter cats, dogs or deer from using your space as their personal bathroom. This looks to be an innovative, great product for those wanting extra yard protection.
