Exclusive to Birds Off, The Sonic Scarecrow or Hyrdo Blaster as it is sometimes known, is a motion activated sprinkler that sprays a stream of water each time motion is sensed. Birds and animals ( Possums, Cats, Dogs, deer , Roos, wild life ) will associate being sprayed with the area, and will avoid it in the future ( gives us Humans a bit of a scare as well !! ) . The combination of the spray, along with the movement of the head, and the ticking sound of the sprinkler, will all work together to deter birds from the area. The scarecrow is ideal for keeping pest birds and animals off the dock, jetty, pontoons, gardens, yards and pond areas. This product is a safe, humane, and effective way to deter pests.
Ideal Spots to use the Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler
• Pool areas
• Gardens or ponds
• Beach front areas
• Koi ponds for herons
• Athletic fields
Keep intrusive birds and animals out of your backyard, pool area, garden and more with the scarecrow motion activated sprinkler. The scarecrow can be used for large birds, geese, ducks, and animals like cats or possums. Not suitable for small birds or bats.
•Hooks up to a garden hose, uses 2-3 cups of water per spray ( must have water pressure not boat water pump )
•Works day and night
•Will operate up to 6 months with one 9 volt battery so you can install in places with out power.
•Covers Approximately 1200 square feet if you wish or home in the range to just a few feet.
•Stream will reach 35 ft out by 45 ft wide but you can set your own range.
•Lightweight plastic body, metal head
•Off and on button and sensitivity adjustments a bit light a light sensor
•You can adjust the spray distance so you don't soak yourself!! and turn on and off.
The scarecrow is very easy to install. You simply install a 9 volt battery into the compartment below the “head”, and attach a garden hose to the base. The scarecrow has a stake for easy installation in grass areas. You secure the scarecrow into the ground, and set in an area 35 or less from where the pests are a problem. Make sure the on switch is adjusted and you are ready to go!

Hi Guys, we'd just like to tell you that the Scare Crow motion activated water spray was successful from day one.
We have a family of five Bush Turkeys who excavated our backyard daily. They are not easy to scare and you have to almost grab them to physically scare them off.
However the Scare Crow (we call it the Water Sniper) is totally effective in its range.
Nightime blasts suggest it's having a shot at the neighbourhood cats too, so it is in fact protecting our wildlife.
Thank you !

It was alot of fun to set up, got wet a few times. The sensor picks up pretty well, mostly dogs and cats and bigger birds like Ducks but they need to be within 5 to 7 meters of the unit. Its good how you can turn it on or off and the sensor up or down. The range and pitch of water can also be adjusted. Great little package.
