If there are unwanted animals in your garden, digging through your flowerbeds, fouling your garden and generally making a nuisance of themselves, the Cat Scarer is the answer. Able to scare away not only cats, but foxes as well, this device can keep your plants from being nibbled, and your garden from being played in all night. 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. However, family pets which use the same garden may be affected. Of course, as with all animal behaviour solutions, we can’t guarantee effectiveness in every situation. However, our own experience and our customer feedback have consistently reflected high performance and versatility.
This product is solar powered, which means it is economical, and easy to use. No messy cords or cables - simply find the ideal spot on the wall or fence and let the ultrasonic noise take effect. You'll start to see a difference within a week, and within a few weeks even your most stubborn visitors will be deterred. The solar panel is adjustable, so you can position the panel for optimum performance. The rechargeable battery is included.
| ||Ultrasonic Sound and Strobe Light|
First, the infrared motion sensor detects a warm body moving within the oval, 110 degree arc, up to a distance of 22ft. Once the body is detected, the PestBye Solar Cat Scarer produces an ultrasonic sound at a high frequency, which is inaudible to humans, but will frighten and annoy any cats in the vicinity without scaring away any birds. In addition to the noise, there is also the option to turn on an intense strobe light which will further ward off the animals.
The easy to use wall mount is attached using a keyhole hook and a simple screw, both of which are included with the product. Wall mounting means that it is less likely for an animal to knock over the scarer and damage it, and also means you don't need to make a hole in your lawn or flowerbed.
Due to the strobe light used, this product may affect those with photosensitive epilepsy.
| ||Three Position Switch|
This Cat Scarer has three different positions for the switch. Position one means that when the motion sensor is triggered, the unit will produce a high pitched ultrasonic frequency, in conjunction with a bright strobe light, for 20 seconds, to ward away unwanted cats. Position two means that the unit is off, and the sensors will not be triggered. Position three means that when the motion sensor is triggered, the unit will produce a high pitched ultrasonic frequency for 20 seconds, but the strobe lights will not come on.

"Strobe lights work all the time - will raise this separately with you once visitors have gone. Meanwhile, have turned them off. Disappointing!"

"I have bought 2 scarers. One failed after just over 2 weeks of use, the other starting to flash continually after a week. They do seem to be effective when functioning correctly."

"I bought 3 because the neighbours all have cats and our garden had become a WC for several cats. Since I activated the 3 cat scarers they appear to stay away, or at least not stay for long. My wife thinks the flashing lights do the trick."
