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 !!
I bought this product to keep stray cats from using my outdoor furniture as their bed. Ever since I put the yard guard the cats have not come back.

Review 3 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install

Review 10 for Yard Gard Ultrasonic Animal Repeller
Got 2 units: one in backyard to keep squirrels away from fruit trees, and racoons at night. 2nd to keep deers, and dogs away from front yard.
Pros: Works well and the range is as advertised Product has a waterproof cover in the back, so can be plugged in and used outdoor during rain.
Cons: If you set the variable frequency knob to repel all (insects, big mammals, small mammals), you maybe able to hear the high pitched sound. However, this sound does fade away if you rotate the knob slightly. (See attached picture for the settings where the sound begins to fade for those with more sensitive hearing)
Nuetral: The motion sensor in the device is a bit oversensitive; personally I want the maximum effect, so I prefer to leave the device plugged in and turned on 24/7.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality
Cons: not too friendly for human ears

I LOVE this product! I live in Florida in a 2-story, 100 yr old home with no insulation, a crawl space and an attic. I put one of these in the crawl space and one in the attic. NO MORE squirrels, and no more rats!!!
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality

Review 17 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
