Product Overview

Using taste and scent deterrents, Critter Ridder is the humane solution you need to keep animals away from areas you want to protect. This 2 lb. shaker can contains granules that are made from a mixture of piperine, capsaicin and oil of black pepper. This combination provides repellent action against a number of animals including raccoons, groundhogs, skunks, chipmunks and squirrels. It is also for use against dogs and cats eager to do their business in places you don't want them to do it. Each treatment lasts about 30 days and you can use it outdoors as a perimeter treatment around gardens, on your lawn, inside trash cans and inside indoor spaces that aren't living areas, such as sheds and garages.

    Dont buy this product
    Applied to raised garden bed to keep cats from using it as a litter box. The same night and next morning the cats were in the garden. You’d be better off buying something else because this simply is a waste of money.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback! Critter Ridder® is a conditioning agent and not an instant repellent. It works over time and multiple exposures to the product to teach animals to stay away from the treated area. Each encounter with the product will irritate the animals nose, mouth, and paws. Over time, the animal will learn to associate this unpleasant feeling with the area in which it was applied. If an animal has been coming to that area habitually, it may take longer for them to be repelled.This product is backed by a 30 day return policy and covered under a one year replacement policy. Please contact us at 1-855-542-8242 for assistance.

      This stuff really works. Had squirrels eating flowers and neighbors cats constantly in my yard. Put this down and no more squirrels or cats for two weeks. Will see if it lives up to the 30 day timeline. So far this is a life saver.

      I purchased this product due to Groundhogs eating my garden. After applying as directed, even more groundhogs appeared. Cucumbers, squash, pumpkin eggplant and zucchini GONE! Wish I could get my money back.

      It Works to Repel Dogs and Cats and Does Not Harm My Lawn
      I was very surprised to see so many negative reviews on this product. I use this every year, for the past 10+ years, in northern Oklahoma. I spread it on my front lawn around the mailbox and sidewalk to deter the lazy animal owners that let their dogs poop anywhere and don't pick up after them. This stuff works! I use the granule version and have tried the liquid but found the dry granule type to be a better choice in windy conditions. Pros-It works to repel dogs and cats from pooping in my front lawn. The granules are easier to spread than the messy liquids. It does NOT stink(some of those liquid repel products smelled like rotting blood or fishing stinkbait.) Cons-I Wish It was sold in larger quantities AND for a little less money. The natural ingredients on the label can not be that costly. Havahart folks-please consider a more fair retail pricing.

        My standard poodle was not the least bit repelled by this product. I took him to the store to sniff alternatives but nothing seemed to bother him. Some he even licked. In the end the only to way to keep him out of the flower bed was with a shock collar.

        I bought it to repel skunks from the backyard. As a test, I spotted where they were coming in and put a lot of the critter ridder there. The first night, they just walked through it (2 of them at different times) I figured out they would smell it on them and learn where they got it on their paws. But they have been back every night for a week now, so yeah, that did not help at all. Don't waste your money, you're better off buying cayenne powder at the grocery store

          This product was recommended by a home depot associate. I thought it was expensive and did not seem to make a difference. We have an invasive cat that we think it using the beds in front of our house as a litter box. I can see the cat cross our front porch 2 - 3 times per night.I followed the directions and applied it as instructed. The cat has not changed its behavior patterns and i still making itself at home on our porch and in our beds. It was easy to apply, but does not seem to be effective..

          We recommend allowing time for the cat to be repelled. They learn to stay away from the treated area through multiple exposures to the product. It works by irritating their mouth and paws and teaches them to avoid the area. We recommend allowing a few weeks for control.

          Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for additional assistance.
