Amtek Critter Gitter

Scare away racoons, stray dogs and cats, opossums, skunks, chipmunks, deer, squirrels, gophers, moles, rabbits, voles, woodchucks, coyotes, etc.

The Critter Gitter uses a passive infrared sensor to detect the body heat of animals within a 40 ft. range. This battery-powered device then produces startling high-pitched sounds (note: sounds are audible to humans) coupled with flashing lights to scare animals away. The sound pattern changes randomly so animals do not get used to it. You can also use the Critter Gitter to train pets to keep away from certain areas. Features include high/low volume settings. You’ll enjoy wireless operation for up to a year with a single 9-volt alkaline battery (included).
