There are certain places in our homes where we do not want animals, even our own pets, to be playing around in as they may mess things up. Playful dogs and cats may ruin flower beds. Birds can leave feces on the pool or fireplace. Other wild and untamed animals may eat plants. They have to be deterred from doing these unwanted things. Yet, in recognition of animal rights, this has to be done as humanely as possible.
One of the best ways to achieve this is through the use of a Contech ScareCrow Motion-Activated Animal Deterrent. This device is basically an automated water sprinkler that is activated by a high quality motion sensor. Once movement is detected, a signal is sent by a trigger mechanism to the sprinkler instructing it to release a burst of water spray towards the source of movement. This burst is accompanied by sudden movement and noise. These are sufficient to startle and scare any animal, whether it is as big as a deer or small as a pigeon, intruding into the ScareCrow’s line of fire.
The ScareCrow uses plain water to prevent the intrusion of animals making an environmentally friendly deterrent. You and your family, your garden, and even the animals themselves are therefore not exposed to potentially dangerous chemicals.
With the sensitive sensor and powerful burst of the sprinkler, the ScareCrow can effectively protect an area of 1,000 square feet. You only need to attach it to a garden hose, power it up with a 9-volt battery, and turn the switch on. You can make a few adjustments with the spray distance, the width of the spraying arc, and the sensitivity of the sensor. After that, you can go to bed relaxed knowing that your garden and pool will still look pretty when you wake up in the morning.
