Sends out a very loud noise at a frequency that cats can hear but is too high for most humans to hear. This is both annoying and frightening to the cats but does not affect birds. Also effective for dogs and foxes.
See below, or give us a call if you want to know more about how they work - speak to one of our experts for a full explanation of how to get the most out of these humane and effective cat deterrent systems.
- Unit includes motion sensor
- Covers an 80 degree arc, to a distance of up to 23ft (7m). Total unobstructed working area of 369sq ft.
The Cat repeller is the quickest fix for cats in the garden. Battery powered, it's easy to install by pushing into the ground using the stake supplied, or it can be screwed to a wall or fence.
Fully waterproof, it can be left out in any weather.
Why the motion sensor?
The repeller comes complete with an infra-red (PIR) motion sensor which turns the device on when a warm body enters the controlled area. This has an important purpose other than saving battery life: researchers have found that cats can become desensitised to the noise if they realise that random sounds are not associated directly with their presence in the controlled area. With the motion sensor, the cat learns to associate the noise with its own movement and is much less likely to stop being afraid of the noise.

This repeller device allows you to change the output frequency, enabling you to have the most effective solution for your particular pest problem. Listed below are the types of animals that this repeller can be used against and the most effective setting for each.

N.B If set on numbers one or two the chances of humans being able to hear this are greatly increased.
Batteries What area does it cover?
Requires four AA batteries. Battery life depends on how many times the device is activated, but they typically last 3-4 months assuming 10 activations per day.
Batteries are not supplied as standard but we can supply them.
It covers an 80-degree arc, to a distance of up to 23ft (7m), giving a total unobstructed working area of 369sq ft. Unlike most other repellers this allows you to cover a smaller area with the sensitivity dial. The repeller will give you the full 7m if the dial is fully round to the right to decrease the distance turn to the left, this will help to increase battery life as the repeller will cover the distance you want it to.
How quickly will it work?
If cats have a habit of feeding and fouling in your garden, it can take 14-28 days to deliver the full deterrent effect. 'Occasional' visitors will usually be stopped within 7 days. If you have a dog, the dog may be affected if it is allowed in the same part of the garden. The sound doesn't travel well through walls and fences, so it won't affect a dog in the house or a neighbour's dog. Of course, as with all methods involving animal behaviour, we can’t guarantee effectiveness in every situation, however, our own experience and the feedback we get from customers suggests that this device is effective in almost all situations.
Will it affect birds?
Not at all - you will be able to welcome the birds back to your garden.
