Scarecrow Sprinkler

Scarecrow Sprinkler

Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler Chases Animals Away
It is a clean and effective alternative to smelly, poisonous, or visually disruptive repellents. Just hook up to your garden hose, plug in the battery and point it over the area to be protected. It's that easy.
How it works
Scarecrow senses animals the same way security lights detect people: movement and heat. When an animal is seen, a valve opens, instantly releasing a three-second pulsating spray of water. The combination of the sudden noise, movement, and water frightens animals away. This startling, yet harmless action is a remarkably effective deterrent.
What it needs
9-volt battery power and a hookup to a garden hose. Scarecrows easily last through an average summer's use.
It's easy! Just install the battery, hook up the garden hose and plant the stake in the ground.
Up to 1000 square feet can be covered by one Scarecrow. A 35 foot deep and 45 foot wide 100 degree sensor detection zone provides plenty of garden protection. Ships Quickly!
