Animal Deterrents:
There are many types of different animal deterrents that can be safely used in or around your home. Such solutions utilize different types of technology and methods to keep animals away from your property. Most solutions use a combination of motion sensing, sound projection, flashing lights, or water to effectively and humanely keep curious animals away. Below are a few examples of popular and effective animal deterrents.

The Contech Electronics Scarecrow Water Spraying Animal Repeller
Using a combination of Passive Infrared motion sensing and water, this solution deters animals from entering into a specific part of your home. Once motion is detected it sprays water causing the encroaching animal to run off. Install a 9V battery, stick it into your yard's soil, attach a garden hose and it's ready to stand guard 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's ideal for chasing off most animals and it even works on birds.



The Solar Powered Sonic Mole, Gopher, and Rodent Deterrent
Rodents are very destructive and intrusive. They can carry dangerous diseases, tear apart a home's wiring and infrastructure, and cause havoc within a yard by eating vegetation and digging holes. This solution generates sonic noise to ward off such nuisances. The sonic noise pulses every 30 seconds and causes ground dwelling rodents to move away from the now noisy environment. It's environmentally friendly, uses solar energy for power, and is water resistant. This type of deterrent doesn't affect you or your pets and has an incredible range of 7,500 square feet (or 1/6th of an acre).



The Nite Guard Solar Powered Night Predator Light
The majority of predatory animals hunt after the sun goes down and under the veil of darkness. This solution uses a flashing red LED to keep predators away from your home because they see the flashing red light as a threat which causes them to keep their distance. It uses solar energy for power and can easily handle outdoor temperatures well below zero. It's water resistant and has a visual range of up to 1/2 mile making it suitable for long range deterrence. Attach it to a post, tree, fence, and other areas that are vulnerable from predatory attack such as a chicken coop or dog house.



Spray Shield Animal Deterrent Spray
Having animal deterrents around your home works well, but what happens if you come across an aggressive animal while out for a walk? For such a situation, a different solution is needed. This defensive spray was developed specifically for aggressive animal encounters. When the trigger is pressed, a strong 10 foot stream of citronella (natural oil used in many human, animal, and environmental applications) infused spray shoots out. The strong smell of the citronella spray surprises the receiving animal causing it to scurry away. This solution is humane, pain-free, and will not increase aggression. It won't harm humans and can even be used indoors and for training purposes.



Insect Deterrents:
Mosquitoes and other flying insects can carry dangerous diseases that could threaten your life. To battle against such potential threats, insect deterrents incorporate many unique types of technology to ward off most flying insects from hanging around or entering into your house. Many of these insect deterrents use capture and elimination methods to manage the insect population around your home. From UV technology to magnetic screen doors and everything in between, there are solutions available with the ability to efficiently handle the majority of your insect related problems.
