    Would be a cheaper alternative to electric fencing.

    Except we KNOW electric fencing works.

    I wouldn't bet on the "CritterGetter" working as well​

    Bluntly, I think they are BS! If light scared predators away there would be no need for fencing and coops, with all the cars and motion lights people use every critter would never come out of the ground.

    Really though a electric fence is your best bet because it works on nearly all non-flying predators and gives you more peace of mind.

    did you ever see on tv those pest repellers that you plug in the wall and it is supposed to chase away mice and bugs....i bought one...$20.00 plus shipping....the mice use it for a night light.....if you make it SOMEONE will buy it just to try it.... save your money and get the fence...
