The Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler will protect your garden or pond from unwanted animals. The Scarecrow Sprinkler by Contech instantly releases a short burst of water when it detects animals.
The sudden water, movement and noise scare animals away, and help teach them to avoid the area in the future. Because the sprayer only triggers when the animal moves, its behaviour is difficult for animals to anticipate, making it a very effective deterrent.
Some of the animals that the scarecrow sprinkler deters are Deer, Cats, Raccoons, Dogs, Heron, Rabbits, Squirrels, Skunks, Groundhogs, Opossums, Canadian Geese, Cranes, Pigeons and more.

FAQ on The Scarecrow Sprinkler:
How long will the ScareCrow Sprayer operate before needing a new battery?
Results vary from a few weeks to a year depending upon how often people, pets or the wind trigger the unit. The average seems to be between four and six months. The ScareCrow will typically fire approximately 3000 times from a single battery.
How much water pressure is needed?
30 to 80 P.S.I. If your water pressure is greater than 80P.S.I., Contech recommends installing a pressure reducer (available at hardware and irrigation supply stores) at the hose bib.
Does the ScareCrow work at night?
Yes. The ScareCrow works during the day and at night because it uses an infrared sensor.
Can I adjust the sensitivity of the ScareCrow?.
Yes, you can adjust the sensitivity with the simple twist of a knob.
Can I switch the ScareCrow off?
Yes. There are two ways to switch off the ScareCrow: either set the sensitivity knob to zero, or shut off the water supply.
Can the ScareCrow Sprayer be used in the winter?
No. Bring it in when there is risk of freezing. Freezing water may damage the valve in the Scarecrow.
