havahart 5266 spray awayAre you looking for a natural solution to protect your home and garden from rabbits, squirrels and raccoons?

Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler is a great and smart device to keep them away from your home by spraying water.

It’s perfect to protect your property up to 1,900 sq. ft. from any pets that you don’t want to see near your home. It’s totally natural, so it isn’t harmful for your people.

It comes with a sprinkler that is pre-installed. It saves you time and energy that you don’t have to install the sprinkler to the device.

How does Havahart work?

Havahart 5265 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler has an infrared sensor built in it. The sensor seeks for the heat or the movement of the animal. When the sensor finds an animal, it immediately sprays it with water to scare it away. It works very well not just against rabbit and squirrel, but also larger animals like deer.

It works on a very low battery (9V) to conserve power and uses around 3 cups of water per spray.havahart 5266 spray away review

Where should I use it?

The Sprinkler works on vegetable gardens, flowerbeds, fish ponds or any other areas of your property that you’d like to protect.

It’s an easier and more natural solution to protect your home from animals than building a fence or using chemicals. Chemicals might be harmful for your family as well. This spray is perfect to keep your family safe and keep animals off of your property at the same time.

It’s very customizable – it has four settings of sensitivity that you can set depending on what kind of animals you’d like to scare off your property.

If it’s a smaller animal like a rabbit or a squirrel, set the first level. If you need protection against deer – set it to a higher level.

How to set it up?

The device comes with detailed text and visual instructions about how to set it up. One of its advantages is that it’s simple to set up and it’s ready to use instantly.

It’s harmless for people and for animals. If you don’t like to hurt the animals, it’s definitely a better choice than other animal traps or an electric fence collar. It might be a good solution for teaching your dog which areas she/he needs to avoid.
