Probably a good omen ,, The day I received my "critter getter" I had set it up next to my desk just to adjust intensity , adjust critter range and check motion sensor , and then unplugged it. Later I was watching a youtube clip and heard a scratching sound , turned down my volume and determined I had an opportunity to give it a live test. Reached over - plugged it in. WITHIN 15 SECOND THE WOOD CHIPPER HAD ENOUGH AND HAVENT BEEN BACK FOR DAYS. INCIDENTLY: I had unplugged my unit that same night!!!!! I've got it set up in where I had originally needed it for squirrel attack and haven't heard from my (former) quest , its been a week !!
A cat kept leaving a digusting mess in my yard. I tried several online recommendations and store-bought products to prevent the cat from defecating in my yard. Nothing worked for very long so I purchased the Yard Gard. I've had it on continuous operation for about a week now with no new deposits from the cat. I'm hoping this has solved my problem.
The product itself is of good quality but doesn't do a thing to deter rabbits. If anything I have more now than i did before. It bugs the heck out of my teen daughter, My old ears don't hear a thing but all the younger people here it. Well nice try, going back to the store tomorrow
I have two of these in my front yard, and it is extremely effective in keeping my neighbor's colony of about 13 cats from defecating on my lawn. I know it works because I downloaded an app to detect frequency ranges and the frequency meter is peaking at maximum levels. Frequency can be adjusted so that humans can not hear it. Be sure to use the provided ac cord and keep it set to continuous ac. I've invested close to $200.00 to keep my lawn clean, and I'm determined to have it that way! Thank you for a great product.
We were having a problem with birds pecking at the glass doors adjacent to our deck as well as raccoons using our deck as their latrine. Nothing has worked to keep both from happening UNTIL we purchased this out of desperation. Since placing it on our deck a month ago, we have not had either problem.
The Bird-X Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller.has performed as promised. We had a dog that thought our backyard was his domain and bathroom. I didn't want to stay up all night to try to catch the animal and if I had I am not sure a good tongue lashing would do much anyway. I certainly didn't want to hurt the animal so this was a great option. I has worked from day one and continues to work. After a couple of months I plan to change the setting and go after the squirrels that like to share the bird food.

Review 11 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
Its hard to tell if the product works unless you actually see a cat or dog is close to it...but I haven't seen any cat doodoo close to my side door since I placed it there. There are several stray cats in my neighborhood and my allergies have gotten better since I got the Yard Gard!!!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality

Review 12 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
I have purchased this product before on line to use on racoons in my attic. It got rid of the racoons immediately. Then I used it to get rid of the skunks in my back yard that kept spraying my dog. Then the raccoons were attempting to come back and I needed another one for my attic, but could not wait for it from online. I purchased another one from Home Depot and again it got rid of the raccoons before they could do too much damage and they have not returned. I plan to keep this one permanently in the attic; which is no big deal because it uses very little electricity.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, weather resistant, lives up to its description

Bird X yard gard
PostedDecember 10, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
I purchased two based on reviews. What a waste of money. I am returning one since I do not have the box to return the other. Who writes these reviews? They are not true. My dog/cat problem still exist. These annoying animals still do their business on my lawn!! They walk by the "repellent" like its not even there. Do not buy this item; it does not work.

Review 15 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
I researched this type of unit before settling on this one. I was looking for a solution to keep the neighbors dog from dropping "land mines" on my lawn. Chemicals are expensive and wash away in the rain. Since I have had this unit on I have not had any more problems!
One day I had it off and noticed the dog wandering stubbornly in my yard. I plugged in the unit and pointed it at the dog (from across the yard). He ran home!
The unit has an adjustment knob on the back that allows you to adjust the frequency. For anyone having mixed results with this unit: you need to tweak the setting to the animal you are trying to repel. It is somewhat audible at the setting I have it on but others have said they do not hear it.
It is durable, it has gotten completely covered in mud in rain storms and keeps working.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality

Review 16 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
I purchased this product to deter my neighbor's dogs from the fence line. Prior to setting it up, I aimed the product at my dog. He stopped mid-step and ran away from it, appearing to not like the sound. However, when placed along my fence line, none of my neighbor's 6 dogs were affected and continued to run along my fence, barking.
I was able to repurpose the product and use it successfully, but beware that this does not effectively deter all dogs, alike.
Pros: Durable, Good Shape
Cons: not garaunteed to work

Review 17 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
This product works exactly as it claims! I had the neighborhood dogs and cats using my front yard as their toilet. Every morning I walked out my front door, there was at least one new pile, if not more. The flies, the stench, and having to pick up after them were all incredibly frustrating. I tried pepper powder, with absolutely no benefit. Then I tried this device. Overnight the problem completely stopped!!! I've seen dogs walking along the sidewalk, that cross to the other side of the street when they get to my yard. They don't even want to walk near my yard! The only complaint I've had is by a neighbor who lives across the street, who claims that he can hear the sound when it's set on high. I had to adjust the frequency of the device to the setting for only dogs and cats. It can be used to ward off rodents and insects at the highest setting, but the frequency at this setting is slightly audible to people with very good hearing, who are standing directly in front of the device. On the "Dogs and Cats only" setting, it is very difficult to hear the frequency, even standing directly in front of the device. The directions state that the "constant on" setting is more effective against pests, and I've found this as well. The motion sensor mode doesn't seem to be as effective. The neighbors on either side of me have told me that the neighborhood dogs and cats have now moved onto using their yards. I advised them both to get one of these devices to keep the pests out of their yards, too. In fact, I would recommend this product to any of my friends who have this problem. By the way, Home Depot's price on this product is the best one I've found. Some sites charge as much as double their price.
Pros: 100% effective!

Review 19 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
I used to have cats digging around in my backyard everyday when getting home from work. I built a raised vegetable garden bed so started trying every product out there. I tried powders, pellets, blocking the pathways. Nothing worked until I bought this product. I haven't seen a cat in my yard since.
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, Durable, Great Quality

Review 20 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
I actually bought 2 of these - one for my tenants to keep the birds off their porch and one for me to keep the cats away. It took me a few days to find the "right" setting to keep 13 barn cats off my back porch and away from my doggy door (they kept coming inside!), but I finally hit on it! Cats are real "die hards" and will put up with some really annoying things -- that's why it took a couple of days. Not only the cats, but even the birds have left the trees immediately at my back porch and handicap ramp -- the droppings have stopped! Yaay! I don't have to wash it off every 2 days anymore! Yes, I'm delighted with this product. I have it sitting on the porch so it's right at the cat's level. Thanks!
Tried twice - kept getting an error message when I tried to upload a photo
