Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ClaireS Don't waste your time, money or effort!
These do nothing to deter any kind of animal. Wanted or unwanted. We have had a problem with skunks. The whole reason I purchased these. They did no good keeping them away. I put them along the line where the skunks came into the yard, no good. Heck my dogs were even attracted to them. I would almost say they attract animals. I never had possums in my yard, now I do.
Do not waste your money.
Skunk Smell Remedy: Popular Grease Cutting Dish Detergent, Peroxide and Baking Soda. Make a paste, try to let it stay on your dog for at least 10 minutes and then rinse off with cold water. Once it is rinsed off, rinse again with warm water.
You can also clean clothing and furniture with this paste. Do not count on the smell going away for at least a month. This time around it was about 3.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BMer Difficult to predict when the sound comes on
I purchased this specifically to drive away two types of uninvited rodents (moles/voles and groundhog?) that made my yard their home. After 3+ weeks I do not think this purchase made any difference. I could not yet understand when the sound comes on and off. Sometimes when this is moved it makes the sound, sometimes it does not. I am not sure if this is the way it is designed. I am going to wait another 4-6 weeks and then return it. There are cheaper versions of solar light if that is the only functional feature of this item.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEAN Go away Raccoon.
Raccoon came over back fence but would not go past this light, went back over the fence & did not raid the food for my feral cats. One cat just sits & waits for the sound & tries to figure it out, other cat is sure there is a critter under there & tries to dig it out. Now it' a game & I replace the dirt each morning when I check the yard.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alyunya Good idea, but makes VERY annoying sound
I was very tempted to buy this for the price and practicality, but I did not realize that it actually makes a sound every 10-15 seconds, which is VERY annoying when you sit in the backyard and it buzzes all the time. Only used it for 30 minutes

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Babs It really works
I got this product to see if it would keep the squirrels out of my flower beds. Not only did it the keep squirrels out but got rid of moles and voles I didn't even know I had. Follow directions on the 2 days of full sun charging or battery can be fussy. I got five , now wishing I had gotten 5 more. I love the solar aspect of the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by happy It worked!
Had a skunk in The neighborhood. He liked our beg low bush for cover. Placed a unit near the bush. Could smell his laocation as he went on down the street. Left my yard alone! Still have birds and a cat. No other rodents in my yard. Glad I bought one and will buy more!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OakSt Poor lighting, did nothing for rodents
The light this gives out at night is very, very low. Seemed to do nothing for rodents... I had a squirrel hopping around it with no effect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JeffS Looks cool, doesnt work
Plain and simple - doesnt work. I followed the instructions for installation. Initially, It appeared to be keeping away the moles, however I just dont think they were around yet. After about 2 weeks of it being in, we have a ton of moles in the yard.
