Motion Sensing Scarecrow Squirts Pests
The 30-in. tall scarecrow is powered by two 9-volt batteries. It attaches to the end of your garden hose and pushes into the ground. Its motion sensor detects animals from as large as deer to as small as squirrels, then quickly fires a short burst of water at them from its pulsating sprinkler head.
Unit swivels 360? and has a range of 35 ft. so it'll protect up to 1,000 sq. ft. of yard or garden.
Sells for $129 (U.S.) plus S&H.
