Read what the press has to say about our innovative products:

"We installed a Scarecrow in one of our test gardens last summer, where we're normally troubled by hungry deer. It worked well--better than more-costly and complicated devices such as electric fencing and deer netting. Deer tracks in our tilled soil indicated that the deer were there often to investigate. Some snuck up behind the Scarecrow, nibbling that section of the garden. The area in front was unmunched until we removed the Scarecrow. The plants were then eaten to the ground."

"I love this thing, and with all the motion sensor lights around, I'm amazed they didn't think of it sooner. A motion-sensing sprinkler! Now isn't that just the thing to keep unwanted pests out of your garden; pest of any species. (Except, perhaps, for ducks.)"

"Braide and Farlinger are also enthusiastic gardeners. Every summer they hang flower baskets along the ocean side of the house, and the front garden has flowering shrubs and plants that complement their natural surroundings. Braide has solved a deer problem by using a device to ward them off. "I have five sprinklers set up around the house, permanently connected to hoses that have motion detectors on them. When the deer walk across the path, they are sprinkled for about five seconds, and then the sprinkler turns off. This deters the deer and the flowers aren't touched.""

"Deer will gladly go over an 8-foot fence to get at roses, but they won't stand for getting wet. That's the concept behind Scarecrow, an animal-invasion deterrent commonly known as "deer sprinklers." The device consists of a rotating sprinkler head on top of an infrared motion sensor. When on guard, it will spray any animal - dog, raccoon, rabbit, cat, cat burglar, daughter's boyfriend - that gets within 35 feet... Cost and assembly are minimal compared with digging postholes and running fence."

"My wife and I used to have a problem with kids sitting on the stone wall in front of our house and smoking cigarettes. Noting would dissuade them, and our lawn was continually littered with butts. Finally, I found a motion-sensor water sprinkler, and whenever the smokers came into the yard the sprinkler would activate. That solved our problem without confrontation".

"Another repelling device is a water Scarecrow. "It's a hard sprinkler connected to a motion sensor. When critters walk past it, they get blasted with water and they will stay away".

"Herons are probably the biggest predator we have," he says. "Everyone thinks it's raccoons, but a raccoon won't be much of a predator if the pond is built eight feet or more in width." It helps that herons are skittish. That limits most of their foraging to water gardens tucked into quiet corners of properties. "They don't like a lot of traffic or noise or kids running in and out of the house. If you're in an area where you think you'll have a problem, consider buying a 'Scarecrow'." By Scarecrow, Beaulieu means a sprinkler that runs off a nine-volt battery. It has a motion detector built in with a range of 30 feet. "Hook it up to a water hose," he says. "Anything that breaks that electronic barrier gets soaked with a blast of water.""

"With the vacation and gardening seasons in full swing, here's just the thing to protect your premises: the ScareCrow ($89), a motion-detecting sprinkler that takes direct aim at wandering animals or intruders. Just hook the battery operated device to a hose and stab it in the ground. When the sprinkler detects motion - up to 35 feet ahead and 45 feet to the sides - it shoots a short but startling burst of water at the trespasser".

"Dogs may be man's best friend, but that friend can become too familiar. Like when the neighbour's dog visits your yard to relieve itself. The result can be a blight on both your lawn and neighbourhood relations. Polite protests can be ignored, and taking revenge might make your negligent neighbour less inclined to lend you his Sawzall.

But there is an answer that's acceptable to everyone, probably, except the dog in question. Contech Electronics Inc. makes a sprinkler it calls the ScareCrow which is designed to prevent unwanted lawn deposits.

The 9-volt battery powered ScareCrow has a motion detector just like the ones found in security yard lights. Hook it up to a hose and it will shoot about two cups of water up to 35 feet in a quick burst. (You can watch a short video of the ScareCrow in action at"
