If you’re one of those suburb or country dwellers who finds themselves constantly battling the local animal population this modern take on the trusty scarecrow could bring some relief.
The ScareCrow is basically a sprinkler with a built-in motion detector that connects to a garden hose and can be set up anywhere on your property you want protected from the wildlife. When the motion sensor detects an animal it will fire a startling burst of water back and forth for a few seconds scaring off the intruder and hopefully convinces them to never return. The ScareCrow uses only about 2-3 cups of water per deterrence and will protect and cover an area of about 1200 sq. ft. It operates for up to 6 months on a single 9-volt battery and is currently available for about $80.
