Product Overview

Protect your yard from nuisance animals 24/7 with the Havahart Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler. Spray Away uses only water and noise to effectively and instantly repel animals that enter your garden, yard and pond area. Spray Away works by detecting an animal's heat and movement with its infrared sensor. Once the unit senses the animal in its path it releases a short and startling burst of water to scare the animal off your property. This motion activated sprinkler will defend up to 1,900 sq. ft. with no harmful chemicals. The exclusive Adjustable Sensor Eye coupled with nine different sensitivity settings makes Spray Away the most innovative animal repellent sprinkler on the market. Just point the Adjustable Sensor Eye up or down to sense the animal. Choose from nine sensitivity settings to target your specific animal and distance. Havahart has also made Spray Away easy to place in your yard with its Step-in stake design. Simply, step down into the foot stirrup and easily insert the stake in your desired area. Unlike other motion activated sprinkler that leak water; Spray Away was designed with leak free engineering in mind. Spray Away has only one hose connection directly on the body of the unit to prevent leaking. Its smart warning system, Spray Away's LED indicator light will flash when it senses movement, and to alert you when batteries are running low so there's time to replace them and ensure your yard will never be unprotected.

How do you turn it off so that a person can enter the yard? Can you turn it off remotely so you don't have to get sprayed in order approach it?

Asked by: eazymom45
You can not turn it off. In fact, it is hooked up to your garden hose which will have to be turned on for this to work.

Could the Spray Away be used with a rain barrel or does it require the pressure from a conventional spigot system?

Asked by: Wildlife
I would think it requires pressure from a spigot system. Otherwise, the spray force could be too low.

Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler Animal Repellent is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from When operating they do keep the critters away. I have 2, but only 1 really works. They both leak.... When operating they do keep the critters away. I have 2, but only 1 really works. They both leak. Battery compartment gets wet and corrodes the battery pack. Not replaceable from the company. They sell NO spare parts! Junk after about 1 to 2 years if you're lucky.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with this product So I basically bought this item because my friend had purchased one couple years back when he had a pest problem destroying his new grass, I went to purchase the same name brand but the box and item looked completely diff, but he said it was good quality, well when I opened the box I could already tell it looked a bit diff, so I assume this is the new and improved version, I thought wrong!! I followed instruction the instruction, did my first test and it only worked once, after that it would just drip out of the holes onto the device itself. And stop working all together, this was a brand new! Unit out of box and failed after one spray. Return next day, not even your 2 yr warranty is worth the headache to keep repairing/replacing this unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scares 'em away and keeps 'em away! What a great way to keep pesky critters away from sensitive areas around the home! I set my Spray Away unit up to keep the armadillos from digging up my lawn in the back of my house. It was easy to assemble and set up very simply. I left it on and set the sensor to about half way. When the armadillos get within range they start at the sound and scurry as far away as the can in a hurry. The squirting action also keeps the squirrels from getting to my pecan trees. The intermittent action prevents the critters from becoming accustomed to the unit. I like this non-lethal remedy to keeping pesky critters at bay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good for smaller critters like squirrels If you want to scare away larger animals, my guess is this product will work like a dream. However, for smaller critters like squirrels, this product is not effective. Even at the most sensitive setting, the sensor does not pick up the movement of squirrels very accurately. They sometimes pass by the sensor 2 or 3 times before it actually "sees" them and sprays. I watched a squirrel walk past the sensor, climb a tree, grab a fruit and walk back past the sensor. The sensor only went off as it passed by with fruit in its mouth. It made him run a little faster at that point, but then it was too late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pest deterrent Had a neighbor and her dog constantly wanting to use my front lawn as waste area without picking up afterwards. Dog urine turning several spots yellow from constant everyday "dog watering" . After asking the dog owner to please stop this with no positive response---now the spray away truly keeps them moving down the sidewalk to other areas. Seems its really hard to find the "right" spot for marking my yard while constantly being sprayed!!!!! Recommending it to all my neighbors so we keep the pest and her dog on their side of the neighborhood

Rated 1 out of 5 by from would not recommend...leaks and comes off This product itself is great when it works, but designed really poorly..have bought two and the same problem...the part that attatched to the hose is constantly comeing off and water all over the place. luckily we have been home and up..We then desided to glue it...and you guessed it, last a few weeks and then a small flood near our house..the hose came apart from the sprayer..I would tell people if they want a water flood in there garden or near their house, buy it...The design should be different..the water attatchement at the top..then gravity would be the one thing against it..the pressure just shoves it off..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use Care when handling! We live on a pond. We get geese and geese are very messy. We started setting this up in our yard to keep the geese out of the yard but while tightening the hose to the machine head, my husband dropped it. And it broke. The machine head is very heavy and the eye sensors very fragile. We called the 800 number and they shipped us out a new one right away and with no hassle. Once we got the new one set up, it works great! It has been keeping the geese out of our yard wonderfully! And it waters the lawn at the same time. No more goose droppings in the yard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe for garden non lethal to wildlife Last year I planted hundreds of dollars of plants and shrubs and herbs that were killed or eaten by the stray cats and squirrels. This product has changed the outcome for my flower garden and shade garden. Nothing gets by this product. It works even better than I imagined. Best of all the animals are not injured and my garden is safe. I really enjoy watching how well it works.
