Essential Info

Scare away raccoons, stray dogs, stray cats, opossums, skunks, chipmunks, deer, squirrels, gophers, moles, rabbits, voles, woodchucks, coyotes, and other unwanted wildlife.

The Critter Gitter uses a passive infrared sensor to detect the animal's body heat within a 40 foot detection range. This battery-powered device produces startling high-pitched sounds coupled with flashing lights to scare animals away. The sound pattern changes randomly so animals do not get used to it. You can also use the Critter Gitter to train pets to keep away from certain areas. Features include high and low volume settings. You'll enjoy wireless operation for up to a year with a single 9-volt alkaline battery (included).

Note: sounds are audible to humans.

    Did not work for Raccoons! Battery life very short and when the battery wears down, the unit just sounds off until you replace the batteries.
    LUCINDA E -- chichester, NH   11/3/2013
    Perfect! Only problem has been during leaf-fall - had to shut it off to stop repeated alarms! :-) FYI I found skunks were not impressed by the device, but they aren't easily scared off by much. I'm PLEASED to have my own CG, which is protecting my honeybee yard. Thanks. Delivered very swiftly, as well!
    CHUCK -- reedsport, OR   7/11/2013
    We bought two of these and installed on our remote cabin in Alaska. Easy to install, the range is excellent, and noise ceases after movement ends. The shipping of the units was poor. Only UPS was offered to Alaska unless we paid $25. So we took the free shipping option to a friend in Oregon and he mailed the units to us for $9.80.

    Loud alarm so it's a good thing it's in an area away from homes. Appears to be keeping the deer away. So far, it was worth every cent. Just ensure no leaves or branches are in the way, as they can set it off when the wind blows. We had to set ours to bend down a little as cars were setting it off that went by 50-60' away on the road! Yes, there is only a little plastic bag to cover it from rain...however, that has not been an issue thus far. Overall, a really good product.
    PAULA -- haines city, FL   11/30/2012
    just returned this item. it did not work for us at all. we tried placing it in different locations to scare away our vultures. none of the locations work, we were disappointed as this was recommended by the federal fish and wildlife game wardens....hopefully we can find something someday to help us with this problem.
    RONALD -- dundee, NY   10/18/2012
    Using critter gitter to keep a bear away from my beehives. So far so good!!
    JOHN -- big indian, NY   8/20/2012
    As advertised. It seems to keep the bears away from my bees.
    WILLIAM -- atlanta, GA   7/30/2012
    Works well but the range is too much for my area (front porch). Living in a city, the noise it puts out is too loud. Wish there was a way to modify the range and width of the sensor.
    ELAINE -- alamo, CA   6/17/2012
    Great product! Simplest way out there to humanely keep critters away from the garden or anything else outside OR inside that needs protecting. I even use it on my kitchen counters to "gently" remind my kitties that this is off-limits...
    RICK -- condon, MT   12/9/2011
    I bought Critter Gitters for a bear expert who handles problem bears. I have used them for campsite security in remote area that have bears. Although none of mine have gone off for a bear, I know they work well when a human trips them. They arrived in a timely manner, and the product does what it is supposed to do. I would recommend a minimum of two for a campsite depending on the terrain.
    BARBARA KEEL -- auburn, AL   10/9/2011
    I'm pretty sure I like it, it is certainly loud and scares me every time I walk past it. The noise shakes me to the core and I hope the coyotes feel the same. I think I like it enough to probably order more. Very easy to set up, nothing to it. If it keeps the coyotes away from my pens, I can deal with jumping out of my skin every time I forget it's there.
    IRENE -- ft mccoy, FL   9/29/2011
    This device is the greatest! It not only alarms for bears and such soming in the yard but we have had a string of home invasions in our area and it definately alarms and scares away burgulars. Get one of these it could save your life!! I have 3 of them.
    ARTUR SOBCZAK / -- eagle, CO   9/9/2011
    I have 2 of these and they work great. Will purchase again.
    FORREST -- minneapolis, MN   9/9/2011
    good sensitivity, range, and loud. I used it while backpacking in Wyoming as a way to stay alert of bears came in the camp.
    LAURIE -- ward cove, AK   8/31/2011
    After dealing with bears getting into our shed and tearing down the door, I tried the critter gitter and it has kept them away for a month now! Something people should know is the batteries that come with it say they are only temporary and should be replaced after a month. They shouldn't put a temporary battery in a new package because often people don't read the fine print and think it just quit working.
    Jon -- warren county, NJ   7/18/2011
    I bought the critter gitter to keep bears away from my beehives. While I haven't had any trouble yet with the bears, the deer are not frightened by this device at all. They literally stand directly in front of it, tripping the alarm all night long. I had to disable it because of this.
    JOSEPH -- sudbury, MA   4/29/2011
    Very effective repeller for cats, racoons, etc. No effect on our wild turkeys. Considerable variation in sensitivity unit to unit. Needs all weather housing.
    KAREN -- greenwood, SC   1/7/2011
    So far, so good. I got this to keep the cats away from the birdfeeders. It's doing a pretty good job of that. Doesn't faze the squirrels though. It's been outside in rain and snow and is still going strong inside it's little baggie. I do wish that it was completely weather-proof.
