Set Of 2 Solar Cat Repeller By PestBye®
Set of 2 Solar Cat Repeller By PestBye®
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.
These cat repellers are the quickest fix for unwanted cats in the garden. Solar powered, they're easy to install by pushing into the ground using the stakes supplied. Fully waterproof, they can be left out in any weather.
What area does it cover
They cover 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 repellers 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.
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 these devices are effective in almost all situations.
Will it affect birds
Not at all - you will be able to welcome the birds back to your garden.

Why the motion sensor
The repellers come complete with an infra-red (PIR) motion sensor which turns them 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.
