Are deer and raccoons getting more out of your garden than you. Are herons emptying your fishpond? Are local dogs and cats leaving a mess in your yard? Humanely and safely chase them all away with ScareCrow. The ScareCrow's sprinkler is motion activated, releasing a short but startling burst of water when it detects an animal. Without shocks, chemicals or unsightly barriers, one 9-Volt battery protects your garden or pond day and night for up to 4 months. Must be attached to garden hose.

  • Humane, safe and environmentally friendly; uses only a small amount of water each time
  • Highly sensitive motion detector senses large and small animals
  • No chemicals, shocks or unsightly, costly fences or barriers
  • Smart circuitry automatically dampens sensitivity in windy conditions to reduce false triggering
  • Works day and night for up to 4 months on a single 9-Volt battery

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works awesome! Bought this to try and keep our dogs from fighting through the fence with the neighbor dogs. Ordered it online and the product came within the week. Installed the scarecrow pointing down along the fenceline. As soon as the dogs rushed over to the fence and got within about 3 meters of the fence the sprinkler went off and sent the dogs running in the other direction. Now they just avoid the fence area altogether. This has restored out peace and sanity. Worth every penny. May 15, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Excitable Scarecrow The product discourages feral rabbits from digging up our front yard... when we can use it. The problem is that wind or rain easily activates it (false alarm) even when no animals are around. Lowering the sensitivity control reduces the false alarms, but then also fails to detect smaller animals at a distance of 20+ feet. It works well in dry, calm weather. Otherwise the effective range is compromised for smaller animals. Know this before you buy. May 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scary Scarecrow! What a fantastic product! I have it overseeing my strawberries and it scares the daylights out of those pesky birds. It's been operating for a month now and it's great. It doesn't quite "see" behind the berries so the birds stealthily sneek behind. However, the odd movement of the leaves triggers the "crow"'s hilarious to watch! Even the squirrels are ticked off! I'm planning to purchase another one to oversee my Currants and Gooseberries. A definite plus for the serious gardener. June 9, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great I bought this item to keep pests off of my yard. I had to mount it high and tilt it downward so the pests could not get at it . The pests were not animals , they were highschool kids that thought my lawn was a sidewalk. it work like a charm and gave me a great deal of entertainment . October 6, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected. Setup was easy. The critters have not returned since I put this up. April 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scarecrow Outdoor Animal Deterant Rec'd within 4 days of ordering - very fast. Met and exceeded my expectations, it is keeping the deer and rabbits out of our garden. It saved me from building a larger fence. Great product. August 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We use it to keep raccoons at bay. Before we got the scarecrow we had trouble with raccoons attacking the fish in our pond. We haven't lost a fish since the scarecrow came on the job! July 9, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. Know its limitations I bought the Scarecrow to cover 8 raised plot garden beds in a 20' x 20' area. Squirrels have been uprooting my your plants while digging for seeds. I have seen people questioning whether the Scarecrow is sensitive enough to detect squirrels - it is. With the sensitivity set to maximum it picks up squirrels and performs as intended, BUT, not for the full area I need it too. If a squirrel comes in from the far side of the garden, the Scarecrow doesn't detect it until it gets closer. For this reason, I have ordered a 2nd unit and am confident that between the 2 I will get the coverage needed. I do wish I could adjust the spray height even lower than the lowest setting, but I can live with the minimum it gives me. I have not had the unit long enough to speak to its durability. I have read some of the problems people have had and the maintenance that people have done to address them and feel like I have walked into the purchase with both eyes open. August 20, 2014
