    I tried a search but am having no luck.

    Does anyone have these?? How are they working for you and what type of critters are they keeping away??

    Thank you

    I saw them in Gemplers or Nasco catalogue I think. Maybe raintree.

    I have two of them. They work fine on pretty much all the critters you might have problems with. Even if they normally aren't bothered by rain the sudden burst of water shooting at them scares them off. Works wonders with deer. Negatives are (1) I often forget and walk in it's path and get wet myself. (2) you have to leave the water on so there is water pressure in the hose all the time which can cause burst hoses in the heat. I think Gardener's Supply carries them.

    You can make yourself a hose out of automobile radiator hose. Rather spendy, but then you don't have to worry about the hose bursting in the heat and they last for many years.

    Search for 'motion detection sprinkler' to see all that is offered.
