The PestBye Advanced Cat Scarer sends out a very loud noise at a frequency that cats can hear but is too high for most humans to hear. This is annoying and frightening to the cats. The repeller is also effective for dogs and foxes but does not affect birds.
The Advanced Cat Scarer incorporates a sophisticated PIR (Passive Infra Red) motion sensor which turns the device on when a warm body enters the controlled area. This has an important purpose other than saving battery life: researchers have found that cats can become desensitised to the noise if they realise that random sounds are not associated directly with their presence in the controlled area. With the motion sensor, the cat learns to associate the noise with its own movement, and is much less likely to stop being afraid of the noise.
It covers a 120 degree arc, to a distance of up to 52.5ft (16m), giving a total unobstructed working area of (188 Square Metres).
If the cats have a habit of feeding and fouling in your garden, it can take 14-28 days to deliver the full deterrent effect. 'Occasional' visitors will usually be stopped within 7 days. Of course, as with all methods involving animal behaviour, we can’t guarantee effectiveness in every situation, however, our own experience and the feedback we get from customers suggests that this device is effective in almost all situations.
If you have a dog, it may affect the dog if it's allowed in the same part of the garden. The sound doesn't travel well through walls and fences, so it won't affect a dog in the house, or a neighbour's dog.
Not at all - you'll be able to welcome the birds back to your garden.
Requires 2 x 9 Volt batteries or optional power supply (not included). Battery life depends on how many times the device is activated, but they typically last 3-4 months assuming 10 activations per day. This device uses fewer batteries than other repellers but lasts just as long. Batteries not supplied.
Push the repeller into the ground using the stake provided or mount it on a wall or pillar.
The test button on the bottom of the unit when pushed once will turn on a constant, audible noise. Pushed again it will turn it off. There is no "on" or "off" position on the button, so the only way of telling if the unit is in test mode is if the device is making an audible noise. If you press the test button again, the noise should stop and the unit will work as described.
No complaints whatsoever about the supplier.
