Run into the sprinkler, scream its so cold and run away laughing…remember those hot summer days? It was fun for us; it’s not that fun for wild animals. Startle those guys with noise and water and they’ll run away. Most wild animals learn quickly to avoid an area after getting squirted and startled with the ScareCrow. Scare away deer, raccoons, heron, dogs and other animals with a noisy, startling burst of water. Installation is effortless as it attaches right to your hose. Works day and night, motion activated automatic protection for your yard, fruit trees, vegetables, flowers and water features from hungry or destructive animal intruders. (You can set it up in the yard for you and the kids too. How long has it been since you ran through the sprinkler? You’ll never get too old for the fun in life.) Makes a great gift. ScareCrow's 'head' measures approximately 7 in. long, 3 in. wide, 4 in. tall. The sturdy plastic stake is 17 inches tall. Operates for up to six months on a single 9 volt battery.
