Essential Info

Having trouble with returning animal "visitors?" Need a deterrent to keep the most daring animals away, time and time again? Then try the Scarecrow, a device that sprays animals with a blast of water when they approach. Simply push the mounting spike into your lawn, attach your garden hose and you'll have a foolproof animal deterring system that is humane and won't injure, but merely scare them away. The Scarecrow features a PIR (passive infrared) motion detector that sprays a three to four-second burst of water then resets when it detects an approaching critter. Its spray coverage can be adjusted from a narrow 10° coverage to wide 360°, and the 35-foot range lets you place the Scarecrow where it makes the most sense. It requires a 9V battery (sold separately) and is effective on dogs, cats, raccoons, deer, and other unwelcome guests.


What's Included

  • 1x - Scarecrow Water Spraying Animal Repeller
  • More Info

    To keep animals guessing, simply pull up the Scarecrow, move it to a different location, and turn the water on. Soon, animals won't know where they'll be sprayed from, and will be wary of entering the protected area.

    Requires a 9V battery (sold separately), which powers the unit for approximately 6 months under normal use.

    FANTASTIC FOR BLUE HERONS..!! After 5 years my fish pond problems are over. If you have a high water pressure problem, I suggest you go to an RV store and buy a pressure reducing fitting that is only about $10.00. I also I bought a heavy duty hose since it must continually holding pressure. I really recommend this product.

    It works out great! The 2 women normally walk their dogs in my yard and not picking things up finally disappear.
    TONY -- bethel, MN   9/10/2013
    My father bought this for keeping geese off his lawn. Unfortunatly, it didn't deter them and we returned it.
    Bill_IT -- herriman, UT   7/15/2013
    This unit works much better than I had hoped. Within days, two neighborhood dogs that had messed up my flower beds on a daily basis no longer came onto the property. Once this retraining is accomplished, usually you can stop using the unit unless a new animal enters the picture. But be aware of one thing: kids in your neighborhood will line up to be sprinkled on hot days! The novelty seems to be irresistible.

    The Scarecrow worked like a charm-actually like it is supposed to. The cat that has been hunting/killing the hummingbirds in my backyard-has given up trying to get into the backyard.Hummingbirds are safe and well and returning.
    SUE -- brainerd, MN   6/1/2013
    I purchased my first Scarecrow after the first bears and raccoons of the season ruined my bird feeders twice. The Scarecrow worked. I have since purchased a few more, to keep my apple trees safe from the deer. So, far, so good. My only complaint is that it is difficult to push into the ground. Sue from Minnesota

    We've had one for years. Replacement was hard to find, but excellent at keeping crows and small animals out of our vegetable garden.
    DALE -- duluth, GA   5/11/2013
    Works great. I have 3 of them.
    MARYJANE -- arbuckle, CA   4/2/2013
    Very pleased ,we have kept all cats out of our garden!!!! Love it
    GLEN -- la porte, TX   10/29/2012
    It actually works!

    DENNIS -- rr1 lunenburg, NS   9/6/2012
    Seems to work well keeping deer out.
    JUDITH -- greenville, SC   8/23/2012
    I am pleased with the Scarecrow. After being sprayed twice, I finally got behind it. lol.....I recommend reading the directions before turning it on.
    BENJAMEN -- bountiful, UT   8/8/2012
    Worked well with the dog, the deer, & the squirrels but even after cleaning the lens it stopped working...not sure why...can't wait to get the replacement tho, it not only keeps animals out, but kept the garden watered well.. Great Product!
    BRADLEY -- coats, NC   7/30/2012
    WORKED LIKE A CHAMP....I am intending on ordering at least 4 more in the future! Bradley Cole
    EARL -- grand island, NY   7/26/2012
    Second purchase of Scarecrow. Would be better if the stream of water could be adjusted to a horizontal trajectory. To contact the backs of small animals such as rabbits.
    JEAN -- snohomish, WA   7/17/2012
    it works! less rabbit activity, its even taken us by surprise a couple of times.
    Dave -- aptos, Ca.   10/19/2011
    I have a very large well manicured lawn. Unfortunately there is a 20 mile long state park next to us and the raccoons were coming nightly to feast on the earthworms and tearing up the grass. I've tried every repellent on the market including products with coyote, fox, and mountain lion urine but nothing worked.I caught and relocated 59 raccoons to date but there is an endless supply. A month ago I purchased 2 scare crow sprinklers and have had no problems with raccoons since. I highly recommend your product. It's the only thing that works.
    TERESA -- rifle, CO   9/24/2011
    I bought it to keep dogs from pooping in my yard. It works great it also keeps my yard watered so a win win both ways!
    MAURICE -- kitchener, ON   8/16/2011
    Skunks and racoons were ripping up our lawn. Scarecrow worked exceedingly well, our sensor light was not deterring them, only giving them more light to do their damage. We now have some wet and clean animals around. I would have liked it better if the water stream could have been directed lower though.
