How does your deer repellent work?
Home Shielders’ deer repellent works by using ultrasonic sound to deter pests. Frequencies that humans and household pets cannot detect and therefore, won’t be affected by. The sound makes some pests uncomfortable so they avoid it, hence the repellent effect.
Do deer repellents work on other animals then?
Yes, they do! Deer repellents are also effective on raccoons, rabbits, mice, wild pigs, groundhogs, gophers, and other mammals that can detect ultrasonic frequency.
Do deer repellents need wiring to the mains?
Not necessarily. The Solar Yard Gard is a self-contained solar-powered unit that charges using sunlight and needs no external power.
The Deer Gard uses batteries but can also be connected to the mains. It comes with a 20ft power cord in case you want to wire it up.
Where do you put the deer repellent?
Place the deer repellent in your yard, on your lawn, in flower beds, or anywhere deer like to eat. These devices have a range of up to 3,000ft2 so should be able to protect most areas of your property.
If your property is larger or you have a more serious deer problem, use these devices in pairs or groups for more coverage.
How are humane deer repellents better than pest control?
Home Shielders’ deer repellent doesn’t use chemicals or traps that harm the animal or your children or pets. They won’t dissipate in rain or stop working once the chemicals wear off. There is no guesswork as to whether these deer repellents are still working or not either.
Sound is annoying to deer and other wild animals but inaudible to humans and most pets. That’s why we recommend using ultrasonic deterrents over more intrusive solutions.
Odor repellents are effective but wash off in the cold or wet and despite the promises of being undetectable to humans or dogs, you can often smell them too.
How long will it take for the deer repellent to begin working?
Much will depend on the scale of the problem, the property, and how much of a habit the deer has formed.
The deer repellent begins working right away but it might take a couple of weeks for all the deer in your neighborhood to get the message. Most Home Shielder customers tell us they begin seeing a reduction in pests within 2-3 weeks.
How do I use your deer repellent?
Using humane deer repellent is easy. Simply set the device up, place it where it provides the most coverage of your yard or property, and set it into the ground. The battery-powered repellent can also be wired to the mains or be kept on batteries. The solar-powered models will need a chance to charge but will begin providing coverage automatically once charged.
