More like appealer than repeller
The lights work especially when the squirrels jump all around/over it. We've tried it in two different locations (moved 2 weeks apart) and feel it attracts the varmints moreso than detracts.

Solar light not working NEW
I ordered two of these at different times. The first one worked for about 1 week and no light, no nothing, does not work money wasted.

Solar Repellers did not work. Rabbits & Squirrels still can in. The spray did great and didn't cost as much.
Apr 16, 2017

I would not recommend . Only one works

Doesn't work
I've put this right in front of my green beans and the deer ignore this and eat them anyway!! Since there's no sound, I wouldn't be able to hear if it works or not, so I feel I got "ripped off" on this product. I've always liked the items I purchased from Harriet Carter, but this is one item that's completely worthless!!! Don't buy it!!

Works like magic
Bought for a friend because the squirrels would go eat her tomatoes in her garden. She says it's worked like magic and it did the trick. She hasnt seen any animal go near it, even her dog avoids it. Non-harmful to animals, just easier to keep her garden uneaten by strays. She woukd recommend and buy. Especially for the price. Been using for 1 month.

we bought three
No more critters and the deer have not ate our corn
Jun 28, 2016
Great for keeping the little critters away.
No more rats, foxes and raccoons steeling my fruit at night.
Jun 18, 2016
Still have a problem with Mr Squirill
Was delivered as scheduled. we may need more sun, we are still getting squirrels
Jun 15, 2016
Very easy to use and maintenance free
I had raccoons taking over my yard, since purchasing this product I have not had them in my yard. Thanks so much
Jun 12, 2016
Works great no more squirals running on my fence

Raccoons in my yard
Been having this product about three week and so far so good, my yard seem to be free of raccoon holes all over my yard
May 28, 2016
So far it seems to be working, flowers still intact!
Easy to install, maintenance free. Love the fact that it is solar powered AND battery power.
May 21, 2016
This does not work
This was supposed to keep rabbits from eating flowers. Not working. They are still eating the plants.
May 13, 2016
these solar repellers!!! Awesome!
We are so pleased with is product. We haven't seen a deer since these repellers have been installed. Awesome product!
Feb 21, 2016
Totally useless.....did not work from the beginning.I though
Not worth the money....never did charge results.....critters are just as frequent
Dec 02, 2015
seems to be working
seems to be working but had to try it as a fox was trying to get our chickens. don't know if its the devise or the remaking of the coop but would like to think that in part it is the device.
Nov 17, 2015
I will not buy this product again
Delivery was very good
Oct 13, 2015

JToo cheap for the purchase price.

Solar Repeller
This product did not work, it was suppose to repel unwanted animals in my yard specially squirrels that were eating the pears from my tree, but it didn't do so.
Sep 02, 2015
I returned it today
I had it pointed right at the driveway where a deer walks up to eat my tomatoes. I put it in such an angle that it'd go off the whole time she walker, ate. She ate at least half of 2 tomato plants. It had no effect on her whatsoever. I returned it today.

Product is supposed to be "inaudible to humans" but we could hear it in the house with the windows closed!
Aug 31, 2015
Scare the varmints
Will use up batteries quickly. But delighted that it scares off my night-time backyard critters pretty well. Wish on/off switch were more accessible.
Aug 24, 2015
I am ordering more as gifts
This product works great. I have them in my backyard, on the side of my house and in the front. I haven't seen any more critters in my yard, not even a squirrel. I love them. My neighbor use them too.
Aug 07, 2015
This product does not perform as advertized.
The paperwork that came with the product said that it was inaudible to humans, when for a fact it is very audible. Also, in spite of strategically placing two of these items at our garden, they did not at all keep squirrels from completely eating all of the tomatoes off the plants.
Aug 05, 2015
Not what it is reported to be
The product works the batteries are the problem They discharge fast
Jul 27, 2015
The animals are safe .....
I don't know if this item really repels animals because I couldn't get it to work.
Jul 24, 2015
animal repeller
this did not deter any of the animals, racoons turkeys walked by, squirrals were all over even the neighbors cat walked pass, would not suggest this to anyone. so very disappointed

"Keeps unwanted critters from invading your yard...."
On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the effectiveness of this product at 7-8. I have a neighborhood dog that POOPS in my yard. Chemical sprays have been of very little help. The Solar Repellar has been the most effective---I have 9 of the devices carefully placed around my front yard, I still have dog-poop about twice a week. I wish there was one with a stronger signal. I am using the 75ft range type. Please let me know if something better comes along. The neighbor is suppose to be keeping closer watch on his dog.
Jun 21, 2015
I have bought this product several times.
Have used this solar repeller in my garden and flower beds for four years now. Since I have used it the deer have stayed away from my area. I have been very pleased.
Jun 14, 2015
Do NOT judge this until you reinstall the batteries!!!!!
Please check battery box BEFORE trying this product! I read too many reviews about it not working. Well let me tell you!!! After resetting the batteries in their proper places, this product has kept the squirrels off of my Peach tree so far this year! I had the tree for three years and did NOT get one peach! Now my tree is PACKED FULL and still is packed full. This time last year the squirrels had it picked clean! I say they work GREAT!!!!!
Jun 13, 2015
Worthless, wish i would of kept my return label.
Does not faze the animals one bit. Waste of money.
Jun 10, 2015
It must work, we don't have varmits.
We haven't had a raccoon in our yard since we got the repeller. We wanted it so we could have the produce from our garden for us not for them - and its working. Thank you.

Keeps unwanted critters from...lawn,garden, garbage cans...
My problem is a neighborhood dog [don't know for sure which one] that poops in my front yard. I have tried various chemical spray products that seem to help some. The solar repeller is the best product I have found. I have scattered four around my front yard and the dog poop has gone from daily (1-2 times) to once a week. Must be a smart dog that can evade the signal at times. Wish it came in a stronger signal!

shared the info with a neighbor.
for outdoors

Doesn't work
followed all the instructions and it did not work.
Apr 20, 2015
So Sorry
This product simply does not work. We even replaced the rechargeable batteries to make sure it was not a charging problem. Although the motion detector was lighting the led light (indicating it was on), we know a wild raccoon and my two dogs completely ignored it as if it wasn't there. I am very disappointed about this because it looked so good in theory and I have always liked this company.

All talk no show
This Item is horrible I have one in my front yard and it's a squirrel standing 10ft away from it !
Dec 02, 2014
If I move in front of the unit, I see a LED light, but I have no idea if the unit is actually generating sonar sound. How can I assure its function?
Oct 29, 2014
Best Ever Bought
This keeps the raccoons out of our pool and yard and all of the others too. All you do is place it in the ground or attach to anything near where the pest are. We have two homes one in FL and one in the NC mountains and it helps there also. We have recommended this to all of our friends here.
Sep 05, 2014
does NOT work
Right after I put it in the ground, our groundhog ate our lilys and other plants right to the ground. It was a waste of money.
Aug 18, 2014
Product not worth buying
I bought two of the Solar Repellers to keep the deer away from our flower gardens and landscaping and it did not work at all. The product didn't even phase the deer and they ate all our flowers and destroyed the flower garden. This product did not work like the advertisement showed. will not buy this product again

The Solar Repeller works Great
I love this product. I wish I bought a Solar Repeller a long time ago.
Jul 15, 2014
Works as Dog fence
Delivered fast & in good shape. BUT before installing, remove battery tray, remove plastic disconnect & MAKE SURE all batteries fully reset in tray before using,(8 out of 12 I bought were not). Multiple units over uneven ground will take adjusting. Using both 30's & 50's, some need to use 1 tube others 2. Need clear line of sight on body mass. Fenced 250'x 100+ for 3 Bostons First thing that's even come close to working. If go dead change batteries - fixed my oldest one to like new. 4 days of rain knocks out solar power.

Does not work for racoons
I bought this to keep raccoons out of my koi pond. It had no effect on them at all!
Jul 01, 2014
yes and no
It has kept 4 pesky squirrels out of yard, but, no luck with blackbirds. I bought two and may buy another, or a different type.
Jun 16, 2014
This didn't work on squirrels
I put each of the units I bought on the fence - one in the backyard and one in the front. I primarily wanted it to discourage squirrels but they were climbing trees not 10 feet from the unit.
Jun 07, 2014
It actually works
This seems to really work. Just don't have tall grass or weeds in front of it because it will think it's a animal & send the signal when the wind blows.
Jun 05, 2014
not worth the money or the time
I bought two units and gave one as a gift. The animals still came into the garden without any problems. My gift also reported the same results. Very disappointed.
May 20, 2014
It Worked
After years of looking for something that was safe and also works....I am very pleased with this product. No more cleaning up poop in my yard behind others pets.
May 18, 2014
i'm ordering more there great for raccon
they work so good that my neighbors want them slso

Best things since sliced bread
I have a hosta bed on either side of the driveway. We moved there in 2005 and for the first 5 years I never saw the hosta bloom. Every year just as the buds would open up something would come in and eat them all to the ground. I came across these gadgets and for the last 3 years I've seen the hostas bloom :). The units work pretty good for about two years if I make sure I put it away during winter. Last year I didn't get around to it and I had to replace them the year, but hey, I got lucky. They are on sale. Oh I got the smaller one because they work on an area bigger than advertised.
