Dogs and cats are adorable, As long as they're yours. Your neighbors' pets however can be quite annoying, peeing and pooping in your yard like it's the city's designated dump. The Contech Scarecrow Sprinkler doesn't only keep that from happening, it looks awesome too, looking more like a robot bird head than a tool that just sprays the lawn.
Designed for humane but effective animal deterrence, you can finally get rid of the electrocuted traps you've set up along the yard. Make sure you inform the neighborhood association, so they can retract the complaint too. And tell the mailman he's no longer going to be fried when he tries to walk on your grass. Just really, really wet, but you can hold that part back. Tee-hee.
The Contech Scarecrow Sprinkler is a motion-activated watering device, measuring 24 x 7 x 2.5 inches. Not only does it look like a beaked robot guarding your ground from intruders, it actually works like one, spraying a startling burst of water up to a 1,000 square foot area (adjustable) when it detects unwanted rustling anywhere in the vicinity. Mounting stake is 17 inches long, so you can bury it firmly on the soil.
Setting up is simple. Just connect the system to a hose, throw in a 9V battery (not included in the box) and find an ideal spot to mount the stake. Whether it's a herd of raccoons trying to snack on your vegetable garden or a snarky dog that enjoys pooping on your manicured lawn late in the night, the system should detect their presence and take the necessary action. Just be sure to turn it off before tending to your soil, lest spend the next couple of minutes dripping wet.
See, you don't need to install land mines to keep animals away from your yard after all. As long as Gremlins don't roam in your area (remember, they multiply when wet), the Contech Scarecrow Sprinkler should have you covered.
