How does it work?
The ScareCrow uses a
combination of sudden noise, unexpected movement, and a startling blast
of water to create a memorable and unpleasant experience for the
The animal immediately
associates this unpleasant experience with the location, and to avoid
similar surprises, learns to avoid the area. If an animal chooses to
return, the ScareCrow will be waiting.
While a human may flee several steps after activating a ScareCrow, animals are typically affected to a much greater degree.
In most cases they run much farther, and stay away longer.
Because the unit only
triggers when the animal moves, its behaviour is difficult for animals
to anticipate, making it a very effective deterrent.
Reminder for ScareCrow use in winter:
To prevent damage from freezing water, take the ScareCrow inside and
remove the battery before the first winter frost. Failure to do so may
cause some parts to break as ice expands inside.
Creative Use of ScareCrow by our customer Jeffrey L:
I’m very good at customizing items for my own use.
I customized the Scarecrow water sprinkler used to keep Blue Herons away. (Picture Below)
I have two of these connected directly to the sprinkler
system supply line and hard wired to an outlet for power.
One points up in the air (we had a problem with a red
tail hawk) and the other points across the water.
These have worked Flawlessly for 5+ years with zero
maintenance! I’ve installed them with slight modifications in others
You can see in one of these pictures a copper pipe – this
is only there to add stability. The white pvc is the water supply.
The power is a 9v transformer connected directly to the
batter terminals inside the battery compartment.
I’ve pulled out the red/black wire in the picture.
This is very cheap and easy to do…as long as you have power and a water supply
Just thought I’d share – seeing you might be
interested. BTW, I purchased both scarecrow sensors from you.
