The Procter Pest-Stop Ultrasonic Outdoor Garden Pest Repeller is a powerful ultrasonic device designed to clear the garden of unwanted visitors. It repels unwanted garden visitors such as cats, rabbits, squirrels and even larger animals such as foxes and deer. The motion detector picks up movement up to 70 ft from the unit, which triggers a burst of powerful ultrasound, harmlessly scaring the pests away.

I must say, they really do work. They stopped the badger attacks immediately. Although the badgers are unharmed, and actually still pass up and down our driveway, they move rather quickly and no longer stop to 'snack' along the way.
That being said, the plastic case and screws are really not very well designed. The plastic case is quite fiddly to take apart -- which you need to do to change batteries. The eight screws require a phillips head screwdriver of exactly the right size, and a reasonable length neck to boot. At least two of the screws are set very deeply into a recession in the plastic. This makes access extremely difficult, and I've spent a lot more time than I'd like working away at these screws and muttering unprintable things.
The case doesn't really seal, and water can get into it. I've solved that problem by keeping a plastic freezer bag draped over it, but that can cause condensation.
The device does eat batteries. In continuous use, you would probably need to replace 4 D-size batteries in each device at least once a month. That's not cheap, but I've reduced some of the cost by remembering to shut the thing off and on during daylight hours. That gives about a month and a half. It's not cheap, but neither is repairing badger damage, so I just figure it into my overall gardening budget.
I would also like to see a rethink on the way this device is designed to fit on top of a 'pole.' It would be better if this fastener was a clamp and screw device which would fit onto anything, rather than this slide thing which only fits atop a particular size of pole.
All these negatives aside ...it really does work!
I have a big problem with deer eating all the roses so I purchased this pest repeller. I set it up on the setting for large animals with new fully charged batteries, I watched a big Fred Basset type dog no more than 3 metres directly in front of the unit, the dog was totally oblivious of the repeller and just carried on as dogs do.
I have a wealth of experience with ultrasonics after 34 years as an alarm engineer, so I fully understand the workings and how to set them up, I even saw a policeman having to leave a meeting due to an ultrasonic giving him a headache, nobody else was affected. I am very disappointed with this product and do not recommend it
Worked fine for a couple of years but needed to relocate it. Took it off the mount and noticed water coming from the seams. Screws rusted solid so had to drill them out. This was is a sheltered position and running from a power supply rather than batteries.
So in short if you fox or cat problem is indoors then you'll be fine. Otherwise tape up all the screws and seams once installed. and buy the power supply rather than use batteries.
Snap Crackle Pop did nothing to deter them and they managed to chew too many plants-
This piece of kit is NOT Fit for What it was sold for - Therefore I should be receiving a Credit for a Duff Piece of Kit.
Worth noting is that the repeller guarantee does not cover weather damage - it's an outdoor device!
It will repell all sorts of pests, but not at the same time, the type of pest has to be selected via a switch. We think our predator fits in the middle category, but cannot be sure.
