ScareCrow Sprinkler Additional Information

Protect your vegetable garden from squirrels, raccoons, birds, and other hungry animals. The ScareCrow® motion-activated sprinkler has a sensor to automatically detect heat/motion and scares unwanted animals away with a short and startling burst of water. Animals learn to avoid your garden area because of the sudden noise, movement, and spray of the ScareCrow Sprinkler.

The ScareCrow protects up to 1200 sq. ft. of garden area, and comes with a 2 year warranty. Optional sticker decals (included) help to scare away small birds as well. 9V battery required for operations and is not included.

The ScareCrow works day and night without chemicals or unsightly barriers. It can also be linked to additional ScareCrow sprinklers to protect a larger garden area. Using just 2 to 3 cups of water per deterrence, the ScareCrow conserves water and helps to keep flowers, vegetables, herbs, and garden plants safe from unwanted visitors. It is easy to setup and gives you peace of mind for all the hard work you put into your vegetable garden. It operates for up to 6 months on one nine-volt battery (not included).

To prevent damage from freezing weather, take the ScareCrow inside and remove the battery before the winter frost.
