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. Critter Ridder is OMRI Listed and compliant for use in organic production. This Havahart product has been third-party reviewed by the Organic Materials Review Institute.

My cat walked right over the Critter Ridder and did not even smell it or react to it.

Can it be used in a vegetable garden or is it going to affect humans eating the vegetables

Asked by Sis March 11, 2020

Answers

No. It is not meant to be used in and around fruits and vegetables meant for consumption; at least not this particular product. Havahart does make a product safe for fruits and vegetables. This is NOT that product.

Answer

While this product will be effective for dogs, it will not be instantaneous. It works by irritating their nose, paws and mouth and will train them to stay away from the area through multiple exposures. We recommend allowing a few days to a few weeks for control.

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.

It Works to Repel Dogs and Cats and Does Not Harm My Lawn
Quality :

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.

Hello JD,

Please contact our Customer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242)

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.

Sprinkled this stuff around my garden acting as a barrier and it did not stop critters from coming in and eating my vegetables. I sprinkled more around again, wider swathe and even on fence cross beams, and more of my vegetables were eaten again. Will not buy again and do not recommend.

I purchased two canisters in the past two weeks and immediately sprinkled them down around the edge of my property where a Feral Colony had laid claim to my yard and was entering through a gap in the fence. That evening, the "Feral Queen" perused the edge of the fence. I thought, OK I'm going to not only win the battle; I'm going to win this Feral Cat War. Well, later that night I got up to get a drink of water and looked out my kitchen window at what looked like a statue in my back yard. What is that??? I don't have any statuary in my yard! Well, that night she was proudly, unfazed, and sat statuesque in the middle of my yard. Early the next evening when I came home from work and peered thru my kitchen window, lo and behold, two younger, smaller cats were playing right beside the fence where I had sprinkled the Critter Ridder less than 48 hours earlier. I took pictures of the two virtually rolling in it. I then returned to the Home Depot with one of the empty canisters and the picture in my iPhone. Home Depot was great; they refunded the cost of one of the canisters only because I had thrown out the other. I'm just going to have to put up an 8' fence around my yard! They won all the battles; but hopefully, I'll win the Feral Cat War.
