Products to help deter unwanted animals from entering your yard.

Scarecrow: A motion activated sprinkler used to keep unwanted animals out of your garden or yard. When an animal is detected a valve opens, releasing a three-second pulsating spray of water. Just connect a garden hose and plant the stake. Covers up to 1000 square feet. Two 9-volt batteries power it for six months. Item # 587-0102, $69.95
Available through J-B Wholesale Pet Supplies, Inc., 800/526-0388

Get Off My Garden: The best selling dog and cat repellent in Europe and Australia is now available in the U.S. Its special formulation of repellent enveloped in green colored, suspended water crystals gives long lasting, continues action. The crystals do not melt or stick and the repellent is effective in most weather conditions. During rain or moisture, the crystals may grow. In dry conditions, the moisture of the crystals is drawn into the soil. Simply scatter crystals wherever they are needed. Also available in a liquid formulation for application where crystals are not practical.
Item #36348 16 oz. Crystals $5.49, Item #10056 16 oz liquid w/sprayer $5.99
Available through Omaha Vaccine Company, 800/367-4444

Catwatch: Catwatch works on the same principle as a burglar alarm which senses movement within a protected area and produces an ear splitting noise. In this case, the ultrasonic alarm is only heard by cats, and they quickly leave the area. The alarm turns off after 7 seconds when no movement is detected and reverts to scan mode. Covers a range up to 450 Sq. Ft. Dark green weatherproof case mounts on a stake unobtrusively in a flower bed or border. Only 6"H x 3"W x 2"D. Requires a 9 volt battery, or use of the AC adapter with 30' cord. Item #AA46103-00 Catwatch $99.95, Item #AA46103-01 AC Adapter $34.95
Available through ALSTO's Handy Helpers, 800/447-0048
