Disappointing
Rabbits killed the old lawn. We invested in removing all of it and had a new, expensive lawn installed. Unfortunately, the rabbits love the new fresh grass even more. They're favorite place is a few inches from this device!

Looks nice but worthless.
I bought 2 of these and put one at each end of my newly planted yard and flower bed. It's suppose to keep dogs and cats away? Ya, Right. The cats walked in front of and still did bathroom duty. One dog layed directly infront of one and never seemed to be fazed. The other dog still dug a hole in front of it. I even took out the rechargeable batteries and put in regular. Didn't make a difference and yes the red light was on. I wanted something to work not waste my hard earned money on junk! I can't send them back as I threw away the invoice. I'm very discussed!

It dose not work!
This was bought to keep coons away from my bird feeder.I mounted it as shown and placed it so the beam went to the feeder.The little red light showed it was working.This didn't seem to faze them nor did any of the other thing I have put in there way.

Useless piece of junk
A useless piece of junk. Looks nice, but didn't keep raccoons or squirrels away from bird feeder. Placed it about anything about 3 feet from feeder, red light came on, but they didn't even turn around to see where the "sound" was coming from. Bell & Howell used to be a name you could trust their products.

Did not work for us!
did not keep the raccoons from getting into bird seed containers and also the grease tray under the outdoor grill' Unfortunately I will be returning both next week.

Wish I had gotten two
Seems to be working as I have not seen any deer in our yard since it was installed (or is it just the time of the year?). It also seems to keep the neighbors dog away - he chewed up the last non-ultrasonic unit I had. They were not on sale when I bought mine - wish I had bought two so I could put one in the back yard.

Doesn't Work!
I purchased two of these items. One of them didn't work at all, but I had already tossed out my invoice. And the second one works....at least the red light comes on when you walk in front of it. However, it did not deter the raccoons from digging up my lawn. I tried it solar, but then switched to the batteries thinking that would be better. But, did not chase the raccoons away.

Absolutely Useless!!!
Does not affect cats, squirrels or deer. I personally watched as the deer "activated" the device, ie: the red light turned on, and then proceded to leasurely eat all around it!!! I think Harriet Carter should have Bell & Howell pull it from their catalog and refund the money to us.

Works with some, doesn't work with other
As with all things, some animals will be detered, others just won't seem to hear it, or don't mind it. This is more than likely the "Bell Shaped Curve", where the maority of animals are in the middle, others won't come within a mile, and others would eat the thing if they could. My two work fairly well, keepimg MOST of the animals out of my yard. All I can ask for.
Sep 17, 2013
It Works!
I bought a second one this year. I bought one last year and it worked so well to keep the animals out of the garden. I have recommended this item to my gardening friends and neighbors.

Repels Raccoons Nightly Visit
Installed under my window. Heard scampering of little feet. Confirmed the effectiveness of this purchase. Best buy yet.
Sep 13, 2013
Works Great
I have 4. One just stopped working. No problem with others. Best results with Durable Outside Rechargeable batteries: They last the longest. Keeps the cats out of my flower beds, which is why I purchased them. Have to be careful about other animal you are NOT trying to keep out. Gave 2 additional repellers to my neighbor and he loves them.
Aug 24, 2013
It does not work at all1 I have a Yorki
I have a small Yorkie and that is the only animal who is afraid of it. Cats, deer, squirrels they are not afraid at all and play around it. I would like my money back!
Aug 19, 2013

Neighbor recommend this product
I live in a HOA and over the past five years the RABBITS have invaded! I have a family living in a space between my patio and foundation. I placed the unit next to the foundation and have not seen a rabbit since. (They would cross my patio in the morning). I placed the other in my front yard to chase them out of the grass under my tree. I followed instructions and let them charge for two days, used the stakes to plant and have had no problems. Will order more!!

Solar Repeller
It must put off music only the critters can hear. Looks like they are dancing around it. In other nice words it does not work.
Jul 10, 2013
Too much whiz and not enough bang
I installed the Repeller about 4 feet high. I tried from about 8 feet away and the light went on. After 3 days it died. I took off the rechargeble batteries, turned the switch to manual and again it worked from about 8 feet away. 3 days later it died again. Either it is not good or something is wrong with it.

One deaf deer?
We enjoy watching deer come down the edge of the property then go out about 50' until they are beyond our property then swing in again. These obviously work BUT, we must have one deaf deer who will stand right next to them and munch away at my flowers and shrubs! Nice not to have deer poop on the lawn anymore.

Bad Product DOES NOT WORK
Purchased one unit to see if it worked. After setting up the unit I could not see the light flash even though you walk in front. Thought I had a dud. Ordered a repacement. Light came on, indicating it works. Set the unit within 10 feet of the bird feeders. 5 squirrls, two chipmucks and the light did not come on. I set off the motion detector from 30 feet away and the squirrls did nothing. The product is worthless and the company should be ashamed to market this product with their name on it. If I were the CEO of this company some heads would roll. I am sure the idea can work, all that is needed is quality engineers, and a production line that has some quality control prehaps made in America.

Solar Repeller
We ordered this about three years ago but it never worked. I was too lazy to send back. The idea was great as we have deer, raccoons, field mice and an assortment of creatures to nibble at my plants. I had it up from some flowering bushes but it never repelled anything and the bushes were eaten.
Jun 08, 2013
doesn't work, don't buy!
Solar repeller worked only for a week, after that period, the family of groundhogs trimmed all the leaves of my 1 and 1/2 feet height tomatoes, 16 tomatoe trees were all gone! It was just a waste of money!
Jun 06, 2013
It does not work - Squirrels sat on it.
I returned it!!!!
May 30, 2013
Doesn't work.
It will not keep the cats from going to the bathroom under my shrubs.
May 24, 2013
This does not work
Trying to stop squirrels and raccoons from coming around my house.I have it in the sun, I have it on the rechargeable battery switch. It has been in the area I installed for a week. They play and dance right in front of it, around it, and behind it.They are not repelled nor do they have any reaction at all to this product.This product does not work and it's not worth my trouble and expense to send it back..Garbage can is a cheaper way.
May 11, 2013
So far - so good
Have only had them for a week and so far I have not seen any deposits from neighborhood dogs. Based on other reviews, I purchased two. Additional Comment: If you want people to respond to your survey you might try making the form readable.

does nOT work.
unfortunately, this does not work at all. the deer and rabbits are DANCING around and in front of it.
Apr 30, 2013
I would still buy the product again
It's affordable, easy to install. This is my second order, the first one last more than a year. the plastic lens pulvorized under severe sunshine in No. California. I didn't check the warranty, but I should have been given a little rebate on my second order because a product like this one should have at least 4-yr useful life expectancy.
Apr 11, 2013
did not work
Still have ground squirrels
Mar 30, 2013
Returned
Returned the equipment because it did NOT work at all. I even changed the batteries. Nothing!
Mar 28, 2013

dont buy !!!they dont work!!
Nov 11, 2012
I like the solar repeller very much.
It works just find.
Nov 03, 2012
Two are working and I am buying two more
Two are repeling the dogs and I am buying two more to extend the coverage area. Less expensive and less sightly than puting up a fence. My only concern is if the dogs will adapt over time.
Sep 06, 2012
It Works! I almost bought another one.
The product was staked into the ground and the raccoon tried to destroy it but the bulk of the machine held together, so I placed it in an area where he can't get to it. I like it, but some animals must be capyured and relocated.
Aug 06, 2012
Good but not Great
Chased away voles but did not chase away a baby rabbit that is eating my flowers.
Jul 29, 2012
DOES NOT NOT RABBITS STILL COME IN GARDE
WOULD NOT REFER THIS TO ANYONE. NOT SATISFIED
Jul 25, 2012
I am sorry I purchased these
I couldn't find anything great about them. If my husband had not thrown the boxes in the trash I would have returned them. I purchased two and they just didn't work. A waste of [$]
Jun 15, 2012
I would buy again
I put one on my back porch to keep the squirrels away. Also one in the front flower bed and there hasn't be a squirrel in it since.
Jun 13, 2012
Great product leaves not eaten on tree
Keeps the deer away from small bushes and trees
May 17, 2012
Takes some mauvering
I read some of the cons against the purchase; but I bought it and tried some different angles in setting it up in my yard. It took some doinf....BUT IT REALLY WORKS!

Happy With This Product!
So far this repeller is keeping the squirrels of my deck.

"I would buy this product again
product seems to be working....
Sep 16, 2011
It has kept the pests at bay!
A ground hog wandered up to a short distance away and then it took off as fast as it could go. I have never seen it again. It worked so well that my son wanted to "borrow" it for his garden. It kept the ground hogs out of his garden. That is why I ordered two more.
Sep 01, 2011
Worthless
Watched rabbits and a groundhog help themselves to my vegetables right in front of the "Repeller"
Aug 25, 2011
did not work from day 1; squirrels stood
Never worked from day 1 with solar energy & with new batteries; squirrels stood right in front of it!
Aug 16, 2011
Saved my vegetable garden!
I received this for mother's day and it has saved my vegetable garden! No more pests eating my produce before I get it picked. Plan to purchase another for front yard flower garden!
Aug 11, 2011
Doesn't do what it's supposed to!!
I let this sit in the sun for two days. Hoping to deter cats and a groundhog, I set it up. Looked out the window and groundhog was eating my flowers while standing in front of it. Cats continuously walk by. Not a good product.

Solar dog repeller
This product is a joke. We got it to keep the dogs away from our cars and driveway. Ike a pitt boxer mix, 100 pounds. Went right over in front it the thing and layed down and chewed his bone.
Jul 06, 2011
I WOULD NOT RECCOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
A GROUNDHOG WAS ABOUT 3 FT. IN FRONT OF IT EATING MY VEGTABLES. THE SONIC WAS FULLY CHARGED.
Jul 04, 2011
does not work on squirrels
This product might work for rabbits and some other rodents, but absolutely does not work on squirrels in the Kansas City area. We have fought them for years. After my next door neighbor purchased and installed 2 of these I decided I better get 2 myself so his didn't send all the squirrels to my garden. Well they just have not worked at all for this application!!!!
Jun 26, 2011
good product for purpose
good for my deer problem
Jun 24, 2011
Seems to be working.
We use this to keep squirrels away from eating pool solar panels. The longer it is in the sun light the better it works.
Jun 22, 2011
Doesn'tn work very well
It didn't seem to work under solar power so we ued batteries. Still see squirrels around
Jun 16, 2011
So far, so Good
I only started using this item on June 1st. So far I haven't seen any squirrels on my lawn or in the tree. I purchased this product because last August I had a squirrel that stripped my tree naked. There were only a few leaves left in the fall. I called a nursery which stated the squirrel was sharpening his teeth. I will be able to rate this item at the end of the summer. Hopefully, it will keep them away. So far, so good. At first, it did not work. Once I changed to regular batteries, the led light lit up.

Save Your Money
I bought two of these repellers and positioned them on either side of a cherry tree. The repellers did not deter the squirrels and birds one bit. All the cherries were eaten off the tree before they were ripe enough to pick.
Jun 03, 2011
I bought this product to repell raccoons
I bought this item to repell raccoons from my bird feeders. It kept them away from regular bird seed ,but not from hummingbird juice. I had to give up on putting out hummingbird feeders because the raccoons just kept tearing them down inspite of the 2 solar animal repellers that surrounded them.

Cat and Dog Scat

May 07, 2011

I need you to send me a box so that I can return it to you. I does not do the job.I still have squrals running around my back yard. I followed the instructions and it just don't work. I would like a refund.
Apr 20, 2011
it dosen't work on small animals!
it dosen't work for small animals!
Apr 14, 2011
I already had 1, bought another 2
The first one I bought really worked well with keeping the squirrels and birds from eating all the fruit off our trees, so I bought 2 more for other parts of the yard
Apr 02, 2011
did not work
Did not deter animals as advertised. Followed all instructions and nothing happened. Squirrel sat in front of it with no effect. Units worthless.
Mar 08, 2011
a real disapointment
Bought this to control small animals from diging up the mulch in my yard. The first thing they did ( after I installed the unit) was to run up and sit on it.
Feb 15, 2011
I am ordering more!
I had trouble with squirrels digging up my flower beds, rabbits eating my vegetable garden and neighborhood dogs leaving deposits in my yard. I bought 2 of these last fall & they have worked very well.
Nov 04, 2010
So far so good
so far it has worked time will tell
Aug 17, 2010
Difficult to evaluate effectiveness
It is hard to evaluate the effectiveness of the unit since you would have to stay up all night to see if the unwanted night visitors are repelled from the small area covered by the ultrasound. For the unit to operate effectively it has to get many hours of direct sun. Often the areas one wants to protect are shaded. After several more weeks of use I may be able understand the unwanted animals habits and be better able to position the units. It takes some learning since the instructions are minimal.
