Wildlife and the Back Yard do not necessarily mix well.
It doesn’t seem to matter if you live in the suburban areas or if you live in the country, animals can and will make themselves a nuisance. It seems that is what they are supposed to do. Nightly Visitors can be vanquished with the use of the Yard Sentinel. We have had raccoons declare our yard, theirs! I understand that raccoons have every right to live, but I don’t want them living in my backyard. They have a nasty habit of fishing in my pond and catching my Koi. I am never pleased when I walk out in the morning to find only the heads of my fish lying on the ground area surrounding my pond. To that end, I have decided to get a Yard Sentinel. This device emits an ultrasonic sound that is hurtful to the ears of stray raccoons or dogs, or other small creatures that are determined to inhabit part of your space.
The animals don’t like the high frequency noises that can be set to steer them away. With several settings on the device, it can be used as a 24 hour a day deterrent or you can focus it for night time and motion sensing so that it goes off only when it is triggered. These two models that I am showcasing for you here, are similar in in how they work, the second one just has the added feature of a remote control.
That is a handy feature that you might just consider if you are purchasing this item. Why? Well, because of the different settings, you could have this going off in the middle of the night and waking your neighbors. It does have a noise setting, that can be heard for quite a distance. So if you are going to use it in that setting mode, it would be beneficial to you, to be able to reset it as quickly as possible.
It’s not nice to be making loud noises in the middle of the night, even if it is to scare off unwanted animals. The remote will work well with this setting. The ultrasonic settings won’t need that so much. Most people will not hear those sounds, they are meant for animals who hear those high frequencies. It’s the whole principle of the device. Make it uncomfortable for the animals to be in your yard. It will also work for noisy dogs who bark incessantly. They bark and the high pitched noise is triggered, they stop barking because it hurts their ears. Problem solved. Neighbors who have these unruly dogs have no idea why their dogs all of a sudden stop barking. What they don’t know is that you have a secret weapon the Yard Sentinel.
